Too cute to spook!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

I was cruising blog land and stopped to visit  Robin's Creative Cottage  and she had these adorable Halloween treat boxes. I just had to make one of these!  Take a minute and visit her blog, she is amazing and sooo talented!!!  She also has a video on making these Halloween treat boxes with all the directions. You will love it!

After I made this adorable bucket like bag from the instructions at Robin's , I embossed it with the  spots & dots folder and then decorated it. I cut out the little ghost from Paper Dolls cartridge at 3.09 x 5.59 on my gypsy to hide the face and used Peachy Keens~Make a Monster set for the face. I ran the ghost through the crimper and added some glossy accents on the eyes. The die cut is from My Creative Time ~Scallop & Stitched circle and the sentiment is from My Creative Time ~All Around Halloween set. I finished it up by adding some FUN crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM. If you are looking for a quick treat bag to make, this is perfect. It went together pretty quickly. Hope you  like it!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

1.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #83 ~Spooky Time-add a ghost to your project
