Spooky Treats


     With Halloween fast approaching MHK Designs have released some great digital stamp sets and backing papers to help you create something spooky.

    The images have been reduced to fit within the smallest Spellbinder Pumpkin die in the set. Each one has been coloured with Distress Ink before being removed from the die so it has a little white border.  That's the beauty of digital stamps, you can make them whatever size you need.
     All the images came from Spooky and Flight by Night stamp sets.
      The little boxes are self closing so little fingers shouldn't get hurt trying to get the treats out. The instructions for these can be found here on You Tube.
     These boxes are made from one sheet of A4 thin card, printed using a backing paper from the Trick or Treat set. Four boxes from one sheet will each hold approximately three wrapped sweets, so it all works out at a reasonable price.
      Each die cut pumpkin shape is stuck on to the box with a sticky foam pad in the centre, so as the box is popped open the pumpkin doesn't bend.

     There is a Facebook page for MHK Designs which will show you all the amazing designs available, not just Halloween. You can showcase your own creations on the page and chat to the designer too.





I would like to enter these little boxes in the following challenges:
Robyns Fetish - More than two pumpkins (each box has 1 front & 1 back)
Crafty Calendar - Halloween
