Halloween Treat Holders

I made these treat holders for my DGD's and just packed them up filled with goodies for Halloween and they're shipping to Indiana tomorrow. First up is a coffin box & I found the template and directions here on the Martha Stewart website. After this was filled with M&M's, I tied it all up with some gold cording, but I didn't take a photo afterward :) I has spider punches all over done with a MS punch and they were colored with fluorescent Copics. Also used on this was a MS goo punch for the green goo all around the edges.
Here's a view of it closed up.
And here's a little back-pack I made for my other DGD. The directions for this can be found here on SCS. I used a retired SU set for the images, coloring them with fluorescent Copics. This took a while to put together, but the end result was so worth it!
I wrote her name with a versamark pen and embossed it with clear ep, then chalked over it with yellow chalk. Both flaps have velcro closures, with the top holding some cherry twizzlers, and the bottom pocket is full of little stickers that those tiny hands just seem to love :)
Thanks for stopping by today - I wish you all a fantastic Sunday!
