Candy... Anyone??!!!

Hi guys! With Halloween around the corner, I wanted to share this fun treat holder idea with you. It's been boy approved by my 3 1/2 year old, who had complained, that I was only making "girl stuff" for Halloween! So, with that in mind I made this monster, for my little monster !!! :)

It's true, even Frankenstein can appreciate a little bit of sparkle! The bolts seen below, were covered with patterned paper then sprayed with Baby's Breath Spritz. The spritz really brought the bolts to life with a more metallic look.


Here's a punch-out that I used to embellish the box. I added Pixee Dust Blingz to the crescent shape, for some added texture and sparkle.


The chipboard letters here (the a, n, d and y) were covered with patterned paper also and then painted with the same Pixee Dust Blingz.

Supplies:
Shimmerz Paints - Pixee Dust Blingz and Baby's Breath Spritz.
Pink Paislee - Patterned papers, rub-ons, chipboard letters, punch-outs and glittered chipboard.
Other - Wood monster cut-out, eyes, box and embroidery floss all from Hobby Lobby.

To see how to put the box together you can go to the Pink Paislee blog here.

Have a safe and fun Halloween!!! :)

Oh my gosh,this is so cute! Your attention to detail is phenomenal and I just love the way you think outside of the box...using the letter "I" as eyebrows is genius!
