Looking for a quick and easy Halloween gift? This is it! Such a cute little treat. °Ü°
I wasn't feeling very well today and so I spent most of the day in bed. :( After dinner, I still wasn't feeling my best, but I couldn't go back to sleep, so I pulled a chair up to the Cricut desk and grabbed the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I thumbed through the booklet and came to the page with these adorable coffin boxes on it. After debating, I finally decided to give them a go. I got out some black card stock and scrap Halloween papers and started cutting. I started small, with the Witman Sampler boxes in mind, and cut each one at 7". Once I got the shells put together I cut the decorative scraps that I had. I added ribbon and cut some embellishments and before I knew it, I had two very cute little candy boxes ready to go! I am really excited about these. My daughters want to make some for friends, family and teachers. Now that I know what I am doing and have all of the dimensions down, it should be easy to create tons more. If you have the Happy Hauntings cart, you've got to try these! You will ♥ them and so will everyone you give one to!
The fnished box was almost 5" long and almost 3" wide. I filled them with candy kisses and was able to get quite a few in there. Just make sure you are cutting with thick card stock. The candy does add lots of weight and anything thin will not hold up.
Happy Scrappin' to ya! °Ü°
