DIY Pillow Box Sleeve - Halloween Treat

Thursday Greetings!

I have a cute treat idea to share today....good for mass production!

Joy's Life sentiment stamps (Halloween Puns), 
Kraft cardstock, Cricut cut pumpkin

I created a pillow box sleeve!  

Using Joy's Life pillow box, I created my own sleeve template for mass production.
clear acetate pillow box (3.5 x 3 x 1) 5 pack
Just fill the box with your candy & slide them into your embellished sleeve!  easy peasy!

I'm part of a fun hop today, read on...

Candy corn! yummO! But candy corn isn't just sweet to eat, it's also colorful to look at and that's what this hop is all about. Come join our crafters as they use candy corn and it's colors to create fun & festive projects.
Please begin at Lorby's World, she has a drawing going on for one of her original digital stamps.

I hope you enjoyed my project today, your next hop stop is Jessi!

Full Hop List HERE!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Can you believe I've never eaten a candy corn in my whole life? I have no idea what's the taste LOL we haven't got such candies here in Poland. Anyway this is a great idea and a great project - simple & clever. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Creations Challenges and hope to see you back again. Hugs
