Spooky Sweets Thursday

I can't believe we are a day away from Halloween!! This year is really flying. So, to celebrate the holiday I decided to make some cookie boxes for Joshi's teachers. I got the inspiration from the cat sugar cookies I found at the supermarket. I wanted to create something around them so I used Jen's box as inspiration. (Thanks Jen!) To create the box I measured the baked cookies and came up with the measurement of a 2.5" x 2.5" square box. I then took some PTI vellum and scored all the lines with my Scor-Pal. I used Taylor's sticky tape to adhere the vellum together. Then I made the tops of the box with PTI Chocolate card stock. To make them I cut out a 4.5" square and scored at the 1"mark on all four sides. The bottom lid is adhered permantly to the vellum with sticky tape. Then I stacked the cookies inside and tied everything together with some Papertrey Ink satin ribbon. The tag was made with the super cute SASI "Trick or Sweet" set. I used the cat image of course and highlighted him with some Coffee Shimmerz paint. It's really sparkly!! The red glitter is from Taylored Expressions. I really like how these turned out and the teacher's really loved them too.

Before I sign off, I wanted to inform everyone about an awesome new giveaway. Shimmerz paints is coming out with a new line that includeds 5 new colors on November 1st and to celebrate the launch they are hosting a blog candy giveaway. Make sure to check out the blog post for all the details on how to win!

Until tomorrow,
