Trick or Treat?

This week we’re having a ‘FREE FOR ALL’ challenge at Pear Tree Designs.So you can produce any card/project of you choice.Just click on the link for full details on how to join in the fun and check out the fabulous inspiration from the DT!!

Lilac Lemon Designs are sponsoring us too.So there’s a great prize waiting for one lucky winner!

I’ve never made that much Halloween stuff and so many people produce some inspiring treat holder ideas.I thought I’d try making a Mini Pizza Box from a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.

Here’s how it looks open :


I printed the free papers from Activity Village onto both sides of plain white cardstock.I have to admit I was worried about going wrong and wasting so much precious ink.But the intructions were so clear and as there is a video too (they always make things easier!) I found it a doddle to whip it up in no time!

The only difference is I made my band from ribbon rather than card as I had this perfect piece in my stash.The image is  Pollycraft’s Friday Freebie Luna Bitterfrost Happy Haunting.The black,green and orange die cut pieces of card are all scraps from my stash.The black brad is from a pack I’ve had aaaaages and never opened.So all in all it didn’t break the bank to make so more pennies for sweeties to fill it with!

*No chocolate Pumpkins or Eyeballs were harmed in the making of this project*

Yep!I was very good and didn’t even snaffle one!
