Happy Halloween!


I hope you all have a fun day!  Since Eric is 16 and not trick-or-treating anymore,  I wanted to make him some Halloween goodies.  I decided to make this door hanger box from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I cut it at 11 1/4", using some double-sided paper.


To decorate it, I just wrapped it with some ribbon and made a little tag with the My Creative Time Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies and All Around Halloween stamp set.  Easy peasy!


Here's how it looks with some candy in it.  I kept the ghost how it was, but I wrapped a chocolate bar with some paper from the same stack.

Recipe:

K&Company "Spooktacular" Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores & True Black Cardstock
My Creative Time "Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies"
My Creative Time "All Around Halloween" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink True Black Ink
Copic Marker
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Michael's Ribbon
