Trick Or Treat Halloween Matchboxes.

Although I have used my Stampin’Up Matchbox die for this idea, there are plenty of matchbox templates on the internet that could be used instead.Last year Dianne, my special blog friend in Florida, sent me a wonderful parcel of deliciousHalloween crafty bits from Michaels, that, before now, I could hardly bear to think of using, but they are no good kept in a drawer …. and as I have enjoyed looking at them for the past year it’s about time I put them to good use!
So, these are the very lovely 3D, bubble stickers Dianne sent me that I decided to put on some Halloween Trick or Treat matchboxes.
I decorated the sleeves of the matchboxes first, which involved mat and layering, some doodling and using up other Halloween scraps as well as punching, using my trusty old Stampin’Up plain and scalloped edge punches.
I just love the colour combination of purple, green orange and black.
I lined the box trays with contrasting card scraps to make them a little stronger and then added a few stickers inside for good measure.All that was left to do then was to fill them with Halloween type sweeties.
I am really chuffed with how they have turned out ……….
……. and sad in a way, a few more bits of stash are finally used up.
