Are you still getting ready for Halloween?  I finally bought a pumpkin yesterday but I haven’t put out any Halloween decorations yet.  But I have been coming up with different Halloween treat ideas and I have another one for you today.  It’s based on a sketch for this weeks Create with Connie & Mary Thursday challenge.

Here is what the sketch looks like –

I guess it looks like it could be a card but it’s not!  It’s actually a slip cover for a box of mummy candy that I found at the store.

It just slips around the box.  I just happened to have a piece of the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series paper that was exactly the same height as the box of candy.  I wrapped the paper around it and trimmed the extra and glue the ends together to form the slip cover.  “Boooo” is stamped directly on the designer paper.  I cut a strip of Tangerine Tango card stock and embossed it with the square lattice embossing folder – glued it diagonally to the front of the box and trimmed it against the box.  I used a leftover tag from the Googly Treat Kit and stamped it with the mummy image.  I sponged the tag with Crumb Cake to tone down the white since my designer paper had Very Vanilla in it.  I also watercolored the mummy to give him some dimension.  I tied some Basic Black ribbon around the box and through the tag.   Now to decide who will get this mummy treat…..
