ATS Halloween Treats Challenge


The challenge over at ATS this week was to make some treats for Halloween. I decided to make little packages for Ty's preschool friends.

I made these little pillow boxes to hold the treats. I googled and found a template for the box here . I used the large size for this treat holder and traced it onto chip board to make a nice sturdy template to trace around.

I stamped Boo and shaded him just a bit with a grey Prisma. Then I masked him and sponged either purple or orange all around him. Cut him out with a scalloped nestie and matted him with another. Then it was stickle time. The little girls at Preschool will love the sparkle. I added some ribbon to the front fo the box and glued Boo on.

I know Tyler is allowed to have some candy. Like a piece after supper or something like that, he certainly doesn't eat a lot. I also know that some parents do not allow their children to have any sugar, so Goldfish seemed the perfect treat. And the little packages you can get right now for Halloween are the perfect fit for this pillow box. I actually got Teddy Grahams too but they are a little tighter fit and quite frankly just did not match my container for the photo. :)
These will also be perfect for a couple of little tikes that will be trick-or-treating this year who are too young for candy. I made a few this morning but still have several to go and two teacher treats too, can't forget the teachers. These are really quick to put together though, just have to wait for the glue and stickles to dry.
Be sure to check out this and all of the other Wednesday Challenges over on the ATS message board. You can do any of the challenges at anytime, no time limit, and you could be next month's Guest Designer... you might have to fight me for it though. LOL! Don't forget that the new stamps are all available there now also.
Thanks for checking in today.
