Halloween Treat Container
Hello there! Since I was one of the lucky winners at Quirky Crafts "Quirky Monster" challenge, I was invited to be a guest designer for this challenge. How cool is that?! The challenge is "Anything But A Card" and is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish.
I had seen a challenge, that involved recycling, that I also wanted to play so it was an easy decision to use an old Crystal Light container and turn it into something fun! I covered my container with DP and added a band in a coordinating print to dress it up a bit...I also used the same print for the lid. I used a cute image called Bearly a Pumpkin...thank you, Robyn! The bear is colored with pencils, accented with glitter, and cut/mounted with Nestabilities. I added some buttons, attached them with twine, and tied the twine in the back. (I wanted the image panel to gently curve, but not be stuck to the container. I just pulled the twine tight enough to curve; this allows you to see the full image from the front.)
This is what the finished container looks like...it's ready to fill with shredded paper, a gift card, and a sweet treat! It was inexpensive too...less than 50 cents! The container was free, the DP (love it...it reminds me of wall paper...it has wonderful texture!) was on sale, and I just added the twine and buttons. Quick, easy, inexpensive and cute...now that's my kind of project!
