Trick or Treat

I've finally finished my "Trick or Treat" boxes for this year. There are 22 because we had just over 20 ghouls visiting us last year.  (the curtains will be drawn and the lights will be going off after 22 this year!)

My 2016 Halloween boxes are a little less adventurous than in previous years, but I wanted to use some of my under-used box dies.   I've made a selection of 3 different box styles from black card; all embossed with one of two different designs, and each decorated with thin orange satin ribbon and an orange 'trick or treat' die cut.

I've filled each one with three miniature bite-sized chocolate bars.  Funnily enough, there were a couple left over which just happened to be my favourites!  Coincidence, huh?

Nice and simples!




If you're interested, links to previous years' boxes are below:

I think I want to join Lucy and come visiting - shame I'm too far away! Great idea and they look fantastic. Convenient there was some of your favourite ones left over! Hope you enjoyed them.

Wow, these are so cool! I want to knock on your door, too! Let's hope that the kids' parents appreciate how much time you spent on making them. No kids allowed at our door, the front gate is locked :)
