What am I working on for Halloween?

So much great inspiration is out there and one idea that I have fallen in love with are these great boxes that hold little pocket sized anti-bacterial bottles. During a recent back-to-school blog hop, TX Scrapper Mom made these totally cute ones for teacher gifts and because she is so wonderful she linked to Pink Buckaroo Designs wonderful tutorial for making them. Both projects are just awesome (YOU MUST LINK TO SEE WHAT I MEAN  SOOOO...COOL!) and I had to try it out.
I went right over to my local Bath & Body Works and scooped up a bunch of the fun Halloween PocketBac bottles (on sale 8 for $5 right now) and am so going to get these made in time to give as teacher gifts (my daughters teachers and my coworkers)!

I want to make full use of the DCWV Ghosts and Goblins stack I bought as well as the wonderful CTMH stamps I got when I ordered the Art Philosophy set.
So far I have made a test run and a second one with just the basic Halloween vision I am going for....Here is my sneak peak:
I do not have an oval punch like the tutorial suggests so i used my Creative Memories Square punch (small size) to make the opening. I have a long way to go to add on the right Cricut Cuts and more fun details, but I have got the hang of making the boxes now and I will share more soon. These are super fun and I encourage you to take a look at both links to try them out yourself. Check back soon for my final results.


  1. what a fabulous Idea I love it! Can't wait to see the finished project.

  2. OOOOO that paper stack looks awesome!!!! Can't wait to see your finished product. looking good so far! x

  3. This is a very cool idea, can't wait to see it when it is finished!
