Halloween House–Favour Box

I have had these small craftwork cards die cut houses for a couple of years, but, to be honest I am not sure if they do them anymore. They are only small, measuring approx. 5.5cms at their highest and 4.5cm deep.
007With my mojo flagging Marc suggested that I look to Halloween for inspiration as the Poundshops will be/are now awash with goodies and especially as I had also received some gorgeous Halloween bits and pieces in my parcel from Dianne last week and some a couple of weeks ago from the lovely Lizzie….. and this is what I have come up with ….,
004First I took the die cut house and coloured it in roughly with green and orangey brown ProMarker pens ….
006…. then added a bit of doodling using a black fine liner pen ….
008… before gluing the box together.
009I then embellished the house using stickers from this book from Dianne, giving all the bats small googly eyes to really make them stand out and for extra dimension.
When they are in the shops I will put a few chocolate pumpkins in each box I make and then they will be ready to trick or treat with.

How fab is that - bet you can find some house templates on the Silhouette website. Or, I've seen the Stamping Up milk carton die made into a birdhouse, so maybe that could be transformed into a mini house too
