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'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 reminds me of wall has wonderful texture!) was on sale, and I just added the twine and buttons.  Quick, easy, inexpensive and that's my kind of project!
