Open if You Dare!

How about a cool coffin box to enclose those sweet treats for Halloween?  
My box was featured in Northridge Publishing's Cricut Magazine. (October 2012)
I adore this cut from the Happy Hauntings cartridge! I cut it at 5 inches to be sure it was large enough to store candy inside. 
Instead of the traditional Halloween characters....ghosts, witches etc, I decided to go with this lil' mouse. I am not really a fan of "scary" Halloween....I really prefer the "cutesy" Halloween. (I'm kind of a wimp that way! LOL!)
He's a cute mouse complete with a purple sparkly hat. 
I added an orange satin ribbon complete with a purple rhinestone. 
I also added a sentiment from My Craft Spot on a tag cut from the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  
I wanted the moon to be behind him, so I cut a circle with the Cricut Craft Room Basics. I added glossy accents and glitter......because we all know that moons should sparkle. ;) 
And I had to share pictures of my two furry monsters. 
My lil' devil, Skippers.
And....Myla the angel......most of the time! ;)
That's it for me today!
  Have a great day my friends!!

The coffin box is a great idea for treats. I love the cute devil and angel. They are really cute and not spooky! My dog won't even tolerate a neck scarf!
