Hi Friends and Fellow Crafters! Today is the final day for the Cricut Circle Blogiversary Challenge entries. I had really wanted to enter this particular challenge because I would love to win the Yudu Card Shop. I have been enjoying seeing so many fun and creative ways to use the cupcake treat box from Sweet Tooth Treats Project Cartridge. There have been Pumpkins, Apples , and even Angry Birds! LOL! I 've been thinking that it's a fun way to send cupcakes in to school for my son's class this Halloween. He only has 6 students in the class, so it won't be an overwhelming project. Here are the materials I used.
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders (Rivets, Bubbles, Swirls, Zig Zag Border and Swiss Dots)
Cricut Cartridges (Sweet Tooth Boxes, MS All Occasions Cake Art, Happy Hauntings and MIni Monsters)
Embellies, Brads, Purple Stickles and String from my stash
I-Rock and I-Rock Glam Rocks
Scor Tape, Pop Dots and Glue Dots

On the Monster, I used my Cuttlebug and embossed the lid with the Rivets Cuttlebug Folder. I also embossed his hands. The hands, face and scar are from Happy Hauntings. They were layers for a monster on it. I used a piece of yellow cardstock for a background on the eyes, then added Glam Rocks on them. I cut the monster's hair from the grass border on MS All Occasions Cake Art and ran it through the cuttlebug with a zig zag border. I used pop dots to adhere the hair. I hand cut a little tag and wrote for you on it, then tied it to the monster with some black leather string I had laying around on the craft table.I used two brads for the bolts on his head.  Here he is finished:

The ghost is my first attempt at making the cupcake box. I think I may have put it together wrong, but it's a learning experience. LOL! I used the Bubble cuttlebug folder for the lid, the Swirls for his eyes and mouth and my all time favorite Swiss Dots for the bow tie. I cut his eyes, mouth and bow tie from Mini Monsters. I outlined his tie with Purple Stickles and used a plastic Trick or Treat embellie in the center. I thought I had google eyes somewhere, but couldn't find them, so I used pop dots on his eyes. Here is the finished Ghost:
Aren't they a pair? I had a blast creating these. I am excited to make some more for Halloween.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
