Crafty Secrets Postcard Halloween Treat Box & Bunchie in a basket

Smiley from

Only about 2 months until Halloween, my fave holiday for paper crafting! The new Crafty Secrets Postcard Kits are so much fun to use for wall hangers, albums, banners and now little treat boxes!

I got this package of favor boxes at the $1 store a long time ago and never used them. I got this idea to make the Halloween treat box with them. I had to hunt them down in my alterable stuff crate...ugh. The stuff I have in there would last me an alterable life time I think!
I cut the handles off one of them so they wouldn't show, I wanted to make my own handles out of ribbon anyway.
I cut one end off of 2 postcard pieces so they would sit level when I adhered them to my favor box. I did the front and back of the postcard pieces with the papers, stamps and chipboard pieces that come in the kit.I used paper from the Earthy Paper Pad on the sides & back of the box. I stamped the back with some of the stamps that come in the kit.
Here is a sucker cover I made with scalloped & circle punches.
...and a pumpkin girly. I cut her out of one of the papers in the kit and glued her on a piece of card stock for stability and cut her out again. The stick she's on is a recycled wooden sucker stick, I colored it with a black Copic marker. She's glued on to 2 Prima flowers and the stick is stuck in to a wine bottle cork, I started a hole in the cork with my awl. I glued 3 buttons on a stick pin and stuck that through the flowers. Everything is distressed with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo ink.

While I was editing my photos I looked over and saw Bunchie curled up in this basket, silly girl!Smiley from
I hope you have a great week, thanks for checking in on me!

Great idea for the postcard kits, Pam! Loved that--gonna have to make some up. That pumpkin girl is one of my all-time favorite images--I've got my daughter making a needle-felted doll using that image as an example right now--she's an artist--(really!)--can't wait to see the finished product! Love your blog--thanks for the ideas & inspiration.
