"Trick or Treat"
Candy Bats Box
LeighSBDesigner Val 31 Days of Halloween inspiration for Day 2 is a wickedly faBOOlous Trick or Treat Candy Bats Box featuring digi stamps from my new Once Upon a Nightmare Collection!
My new wickedly cute Candy Bats are out in force on Val's faBOOlous treat box!
Just look at them swarming around ravenous for candy...or are they guarding the candy haul from thieving fingers? I don't think I want to find out either way, LOL!
Val printed out all the Candy Bats included the Candy Bats and Senti set, fussy cut them out leaving a narrow white border and coloured them up with Spectrum Noir Tri-blends in Dark Red, Coral, Light Green and Purple with white gel pen highlights.
Using her Silhouette Portrait 3 Val cut out the milk carton box from the Silhouette Designs store from a sheet of heavy weight cardstock coloured with Distress Oxide inks and then decorated the sides with panels cut from Hobby Craft Glitter Black cardstock with oval scalloped windows cut with a metal die and then backed with Hobby Craft Brights cardstocks. Val then decorated the box with the Candy Bats attached with pop dots and the "Trick or Treat" and "Want Candy" senties also included in the Candy Bats and Senti set. She then finished off her fun box with festive multi-coloured flag fibers!
What a magnificent candy box this is...kiddies of any age would be thrilled to get one of these on Halloween night!
