Halloween Goodie -- THIS MADE THE CHIRP!!!!

I made these treat boxes for my boys.

The Pillow Box:
I made these big enough to hold a large gift card and a small candy bar.  The bigger gift cards are 3½ by 5 inches, so I needed to make the pillow box at 9.5 wide & 8.5 high.  These were cut from the awesome Art Philosophy cart by Close to my Hear.  I folded on the long score marks and ran them thru the cuttlebug.  They needed to go thru twice to cover the entire length of the box.  

The Hand:
This was cut at 6.9 by 7.2 (this was elongated a bit).  And similar to a card I made last year using the same hand from A Child’s Year.  I used a raindrop and turned and wielded them in DS to make them look like sharp fingernails.  I painted the nails with smooch and covered them with Liquid glass ( I let dry over night).  Then I rolled and bent the fingers in a natural way.

The Label:
This decretive label was cut from a frame on Happy Haunting as was the phrase “Happy Halloween” and the letters.  I also used the liquid glass on the words & letters to make it look like fresh blood.  The frame was cut at 3.05 by 4.5 and base of the frame /back was cut at 3.38 by 4.5. 

Final Touches:
After gluing everything in place, I added various wiggle eyes with glue dots, a black ribbon topped with a blood red gem, and place box in hand - presto. 

Hope you like it.  Happy Haunting to you and all your goules have a safe and scary Halloween!

God bless!
