Welcome to Day One of the Ghost & Goblins Blog 
Hop. If you just came from Jackie's Blog then you 
are in the right place. If you are just checking out 
my blog and want to hop along please visit 

I am so excited for the fall weather to be here 
because that only means Christmas is just 
around the corner!!

For today I made this really fun treat box. You 
could use it as a place card on your Thanksgiving 
table. The box was hand cut at 5 1/2  X 4 1/2. I 
scored it at 1 1/2 & 4 on the 5 1/2  side. And 1 1/2 
& 3 on the 4 1/2 side. Then you cut slits on the 
first two score lines only to 1 1/2. I know I 
probably confused you I will try to take a 
picture of my sample soon to give you a 
better idea.

The circle was cut at 3 1/2 from the Storybook
cartridge. It can be found on page 36. I used the 
swirl cuttlebug folder to emboss the front and 
back. I then chalked the embossing to make it pop 
a little more. The handle is 1 X 3 and the curly 
vines were cut 1/4 X 3.

For my second project I made a very simple card. 
I used the Artiste CTMH Cricut cartridge to cut the 
base behind the vampire. It can be found on page 71
and was cut at 3 1/2. The card base is 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.
The blue back ground is 5 1/4 X 4 and was 
embossed with the cuttlebug but, I don't know the 
name of this folder. The Vampire was a 
embellishment I found at Tuesday Morning. I 
knew I had to buy him because he was so cute. 

I am your last stop on todays hop and I hope you 
had fun looking at all of the projects for today.  
Make sure to come back tomorrow for more 
exciting Halloween projects.

Sweet Wishes ~ Sharon ~


  1. Sharon - your candy box and card are adorable! Very nice job on both of them - thanks for the hop - have a great day! Gail

  2. I never would have thought to make a pumpkin candy box from a scalloped circle and the swirly embossing folder. Love it! I love that you used non-traditional Halloween colors on your card.

  3. Love the treat box and that little vampire is really cute!
