Whimsical Wednesday -"No Tricks Just Treats"

Today we have all made treat containers over at the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Blog. We hope you will make a fun Halloween treat container and join in the challenge.

 This little milk carton was donated for our use from Regina at The Cutting Cafe and is called the Halloween and Fall Milk Carton Set. I don't have any other machine for electronic cuts other than my Cricut, but there was a pdf file and I just printed it off on patterned paper and cut it out by hand. It was super easy to cut out by hand, just straight lines and some scoring.

The little sucker and candy corn images are also from The Cutting Cafe, they are from a printable stamp set called Halloween Treats Just For You. The pretty crinkle ribbon is by Patsy at the Prairie Bird Boutique. The orange trick or treat circle is the Stitched Circle die by My Creative Time. The little starburst shape is a die from the Build a Banner Kit by My Creative Time and the sentiment is from the Mixed Holiday Sentiments by My Creative Time.

I hope you will stop by the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Blog and see what all the other ladies have in store for you. I also hope that you will participate in the challenge. Regina from The Cutting Cafe has sponsored this challenge with 3 cut files. Patsy from the Prairie Bird Boutique is also sponsoring this challenge with a bundle of shabby crinkle ribbon. I hope you get a chance to play along in the challenge. Hugs- Glora
