Trick or Treat; Smell my FEET!

 Hello ALL! Tis Tuesday and that means it is time for a new challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday. This week it is tipper week so everyone is sharing a tip and we are inviting you to also share your tips with us. I truly enjoy reading everyones tips and learning from one another is just FAB! So remember to add TIP after your name when linking so that you can be in the run for the tipper prize.

For this week I have decided to not make a card but instead work with a TREAT.
We are doing a Halloween party this Friday and I thought it would be nice to make little treat boxes for each kid. Here is the first small lot; I plan on making at least 20.
Here is a closer look; I have put stickers from Hallmark on the plastic bag that has candy corn on the inside and tied it with bakers twine. Then I have used wired ribbon to hold the box together and instead of tying into a bow I have curled the ribbon. Next added the tag/bingo I got as a freebies from ArtiCrafts by Rebecca. The papers are from Fancy Pants Designs 6x6 pack. I am determined to use all of the stack up so that I can buy more next year...great way to look ahead and justify future spending:0) I also added a cutout embellishment from a scrapbooking kit. A few pearls and bling and a black button finish it off. These came together quite quickly and will be finishing up the rest as soon as I get more candy.
Here is a side view of the triangle box. I have cut the paper down to 5x6 so that it leaves some room on the top for the bag to poke out. Now if you have not seen how to make these type of boxes you can take a look HERE. I have changed my measurements to fit my needs. Also my TIP is instead of marking my paper with pencil I have just made small marks with my score tool. Then used those marks to make my future scores. To make my marks easier to find I flip my paper over and score on the blank side of my paper.
