Halloween Trick or Treat Boxes

  Halloween sweet boxes
I’m not that thrilled with the way these boxes turned out. I am not too sure if they are embellished a bit too much.Trick Or Treat
But, there again, they are for children, and as far as they are concerned, the more ghosties and ghoulies the better.

The boxes are made using the Sizzix Bigz XL Shaker Box die.  This die is the main reason I sold my Cuttlebug and bought a Bigshot.  When I saw it demonstrated at the NEC I just had to have it!
Trick or Treat Boxes
The 3D stickers are from Poundland, and are so brilliant!  They come in several different design packs.
I’ve outlined the boxes free hand - (not to carefully, with shaky lines and dots) and added metallic confetti stars here and there to complete the effect.
The sweetie mice are from Ikea.
