Bootastic Boxes

It is time for another ANYTHING GOES Challenge here at 7KIDS!
And this challenge we are having a twist... Multiple Folds!
I think goodie boxes fall into that category!

I always like to share Halloween treats with my friends. So I made these cute little "baskets in a box". The video tutorial can be found here. Believe it or not, you make these with a 6X6 piece of paper and the Envelope Punch Board. Easy, peasy and so much fun!!!

After I made all of my little boxes, it was time to decorate!
I pulled out my favorite Halloween stamp set-Bootastic by Mama Elephant.  I stamped each image with Black Tuxedo Memento ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending white card stock.Each image was then colored with Copic Markers.The ribbons were custom made for the boxes by cutting several lengths of white seam binding. I then "dyed them" with Distress Inks and water. I crinkled them up and set them aside to dry. I filled the little boxes with candy and tied them up!
I can't wait to share them with my coworkers!

Please join the fun with our new Anything Goes Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
