Halloween Take Out Box

Still need a special treat for your favorite spook. Here is a spooky Take Out Treat. The project was inspired by the Orange Coffin box we found at Michael's. When you open it, it has great sound effects - of a creaking coffin complete with ghoulish sounds and it is full of bone shaped candies. Just perfect for the boys on your list. We filled the container with candy fingers and marshmallow treats. We purchased the take out box at Michael's as well and added ribbon trim to the top and the bottom of the container.

To design the embellishments for this side of the box Angela used the 25 point Brayton Font Ensemble to design the designer center of the Harmony Classic I Stamper. The border is from the 10 Designer Centers and Border Ensemble. For a spooky accent we added movable eyes to the border. The image was then mated with multiply cardstock layers using Spellbinders Petite Circles and Scalloped Circles. Here is a closeup of the embellishment.

Here is the view of the backside of the treat box:
To design this side of the box Angela used the small letter set to create her verbiage "Caution Skeleton Crossing" on the outer ring of the Harmony Classic Circle I stamper 1 5/8" using the 6 point small letter set.Die Cut these using the Spellbinders Standard Petite Circle, Small #3 Nestabilities.

Using the “Boo To You” Cuttlebug embossing folder, emboss on white cardstock and use a 1 ¼” circle punch to punch out the skeleton. Add wiggle eyes and chalk the edges with yellow chalk, then use purple ink to ink edges. Die Cut black and Orange Cardstock scallop using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles.
