Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween, everyone! It's Darsie here, and I just love, love, love Halloween! There are so many fun ways to create with diecuts, and today I chose to make spooky candy boxes using the Coffin box diecut!

For this coffin candy box, I cut an oval out of the coffin lid, then embossed it with an embossing folder from Quickutz. I swiped Brilliance White ink over the entire coffin lid and base to give it that "aged stone" look. I accented the coffin with some sparkly red and black tulle, and an adorable Dracula image by Repeat Impressions which I glued to lollipops! I added a few rhinestone bats, and I was finished!

My next candy box was more on the simple side! I added the Small Spider diecut, which I had embossed with a Swiss Dots Folder. I also embossed the lid, same as above, and aged it with the Brilliance White ink. My spider web is from a Martha Stewart punch. I added a few rhinestones for eyes on the spider, a sticker for the sentiment, a big fluffy tulle bow and I was done!
