CDS October Blog Hop - Trick or Treat

Thank you for joining me today for our October Blog Hop at Clearly Digital Stamps. Our theme is:

PRIZES: One lucky winner will receive a $25 Clearly Digital Stamps gift certificate for digital images!

WINNERS: A winner will be randomly chosen from comments received on a DT member's blog. The winner will be announced on the CDS blog Thursday, October 25th.


Here's the treat box I made using the digital pumpkin trio stamp from the Calendar Minis. I made it larger than it comes for the Calendar.

To make it a little spookier for my older grandsons, I added wiggly eyes:

This treat box is really easy and fun to make. The Cricut cut shows where to fold. I only had to put glue on two flaps. The top that's folded over has holes punched in the two places to add ribbon. The scalloped edge just begged to be outlined with Stickles! Printing, coloring, and cutting out the pumpkins is also fast and easy. Mine will be filled with a baggy of candy corn that my grandsons love!
If you haven't visited the other ladies along the way, you can start at the top here:
