Challenge #182 Black and Purple

Ready for Halloween?  I love creating projects for Halloween. My favorite Cricut cartridge is Happy Haunting.  I have made these coffin treat boxes for the last two Halloween's.  They are always a hit.  I made this one out of black and purple cardstock.

Before gluing the lid of the box together I embossed it with my Cuttlebug folder Skulls and Scrolls. For the sentiment I used a stamp from MCT Treats for my Sweet. This is a stamp set from last year and it has a lot of great Halloween sentiments and images. The ribbon is black sheer from Offray and the button is from Liz's Paper Loft. Love how it sparkles. The flower is from my stash.  I tied the little bow and tag with black hemp.
It was very simple to construct.  After cutting the base and the lid @ 8" I used my bone folder to score on the lines. I used Score tape to put it all together. The glue I have did not dry fast enough and the box kept coming apart. The Score tape seemed to work best.

Hope you will join us this week at FCCB. Show us your black and purple creations. 

Bye, Bye, for Now
