Witch Way to the Treats? BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, happy Monday to you! Do you have any picnics planned for today? We don't, just farm work for the hubs and I will be piddling around the house and maybe in the craft room.  I hope you enjoy your self what ever you have on the go!!  It's time for a new BBTB2 challenge and our own talented and sweet leader Susan has chosen the French Fry box from Art Philosophy or any other box for our challenge die cut. I've been wanting to use this cut so I'm glad that Susan picked it! I decided to go with a Halloween theme on my box to get my goodies ready for my grandchildren. The paper I used came from a Hobby Lobby Paper Studio stack called Jeepers Creepers. So here is my first French Fry box, I used an old rosette that I had left over and it worked perfectly, I put Hello Kitty all dressed up in her witch outfit on the rosette and tied black and orange seam binding on that I dyed with Tim Holt's distress inks. I glued my rosette on my box and then tucked some tissue paper down into the box and added my candy. I also used some stickles on Hello Kitty. I am also thinking about adding a tag on it to say Happy Halloween.  Quick and simple! So now I just need to get the rest of them done. lol Need some inspirations? Go check out BBTB2 and see what my design team sisters have in store for you! Ok it's your turn, make the French Fry box from AP, if you don't have AP when use any 3D box and link up with us. We so love when you get crafty with us!

Hi Brenda,
Halloween Kitty ..... PERFECT! It's just not Halloween without her! I think I need to take a trip to Hobby Lobby for some of that paper too. It looks great. Is it double sided? Let me know when you can.
