Halloween Treat Boxes

Taylor my son's girlfriend and I decided we would craft and make these coffins for Halloween. Let me tell you what a conversation starter these were when people asked us what we did today?, and we answered, We made coffins. You had to see the look on their faces. Especially when one of them said, You do realize I am an ex-New York City Police Officer and currently a a Sheriff in New Jersey. Then we showed him what we made...lol Anyway, these are the two that we made for her nieces. We really had a great time making them and can't wait to craft and bond again. We are really looking forward to it.

This one we did with ghosts, this is the top of the box:



Here is a side angle of the box

With so many holidays and celebrations coming up I choose Halloween especially with it right around the corner. I honestly miss trick-or-treating with the kids and yes one year my Aldo did dress up as a pirate so of course this reminded me of him as so many of Mo's images remind me of my boys.

So this week instead making a card, I did something a little different and made this Halloween Luminaria after I saw a gorgeous one on Mindy's blog which you can find Here she really does beautiful work and has inspired me for quite some time now. Anyway,you can find the directions on Splitcoast Stampers HERE

DT Post #105 Favorite Image

Elaine OK favorite image, another challenge for me since I love them all. How can I pick a favorite when they are all so cute. If I ever hit lottery, I would buy every single image in Mo's collection cause they are all my favorite. So as always, the hardest part for me is to pick just one.

So in the end, I decided to use Hoppin Happy which you can find HERE I thought she was perfect for my girlfriends birthday card, so since this is for my BFF Susie you know what that means, she gets a matching box...

So here is what I came up with

How Much is That Doggie In the Window -Mo's DT Post #104

It's still Elaine's turn to host and this weeks theme is "Inspired By A Song" Elaine, I must say you've really challenged me so far, I was going to do it really easy this time, and pick "Happy Birthday" but that was a little too easy and after all this is a challenge. Then I remembered that song "How Much Is That Doggie In the Window" and decided to use "It's All in the Accessories" especially since it looks just like my Ginger. Ginger is a special member of the family who came into our lives 11 years ago and is a rescue dog, we have no idea how old she really is she has a little gimp in her leg, but who cares, we love her just the same. She is a great companion for my hubby and is all of 8 pounds, a tiny little thing, but has that Napoleon complex and thinks she is 10 feet tall and protects us like she is a pit bull. Anyway, you can find that adorable image HERE and HERE

I made this for my Mom who 80th Birthday is a few days she keeps trying to steal Ginger by sticking her in the seat of her walker..lol and yes, Ginger does give us that evil eye look sometimes, and we know to move our hand very quickly..



Of course I had to make a matching box, I used my scallop punch and tried to make it look like a canopy over the window of the pet shop and this is what I came up with.






the card and the box:



and last but not least my angle shot.

DT Post#103 for Mo's-Patchwork

Well it's now Elaine's turn to be our hostess with the mostess... and Elaine you really stumped me with this challenge.. Patchwork? Hum, stumped is an understatement, really had no clue what to do so it so really was a challenge and I love a challange. Then, I went to Michael's last week and saw this stack of paper in the clearance section and it all came together. As soon as I flipped through this stack and saw this print, I immediately thought of "Superduper Gal" and knew it would be perfect for the Parent Coordinater in our school who is the Jack of All Trades, and really does everything she is our Superduper Gal at work. So I made this for her birthday... So Cynthia, My "Soul" Sister, this card's for you...Love you Sistah!!!!

So here is a picture of the card:



Of course since she is so special to me and one of my scrap buddies, I had to make her a matching box so here is a picture of the box. I decided to make this part a shaker and linked the directions below: I also used flowers from the Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE the the ribbon from The Ribbon girl you can find HERE



Shaker Directions: HERE
I used Superduper Gal which you can find HERE and of courses the Boy version which you can find HERE You can also find Superduper Gal HERE
