DAY 11 of the 13 days of Halloween

If you got kids in elementary and it's the FALL / Halloween party - there is so much candy everywhere - that's mine!! no, it's mine!!  You get the idea.. LOL  So as Room Mom for my 1st grader  - I decided that I would make these cute yet simple boxes and ask all parents to donate one bag of wrapped candy to go into the box!  they can have their cupcake & drink in class and TAKE HOME.. their boxes  :)   (day #1 was my original box and they went to another grandchild)

All 4 sides are on the same boxes.  I inked with black ink around the papers and cut at 3 x 3.5.  These are the Chinese boxes found at Micheal's   The black square is inked with White CTMH ink and a ghost cut from the Cricut cartridge - Paper Dolls Dress Up cut at 2.5w & 3.51h using the cut on the overlay on #21.  and will be filled with LOTS of candy!!  The paper pack used was from

I know it looks funny but the cord kind of makes it look bunchy  -but it looks good on my end :)  Ya know it's like the camera adding  lbs to the pics. :)
