Trick or Treat....

Sorry I've been AWOL this week but I have had a bad migraine for days and it's only starting to ease off now. Not much crafting done but I have been making these cute little mini milk cartons and decorating them for Halloween. So far I've made about 8 but I will need about 30 I think as we get lots of little ones Trick or treating round here.

I saw a die for these little boxes but it was quite pricey so I googled (what did we ever do without Google?)templates and found one HERE, it's very easy to make and I think it would also be good for Valentines  Day treats or Christmas.

I had plenty of old orange and black card to use up and I used any offcuts for the sentiments. The papers are mostly snippets of a Halloween pack I bought a few years ago, I can't remember what it was called but it is made by MME. I also use some old offcuts of ribbon. 

It made a nice change to make something other than a card.

Challenges I am entering these into are;

Crafts and Me - Orange
Stampin for the weekend - colours of Autumn
Paper Pretties - Halloween Inspired
Jules Crafty Snippets challenge -Use up your Snippets
My Time To Craft challenge -Orange and Black

there's still time to join in the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Challenge - Anything Goes - HERE

Thanks for Visiting!
