CottageCut Halloween Matchbox Treat Holders

 Hey crafters!  I don't know about you, but at Halloween I just love to make all kinds of little candy holders to pass out to people on Halloween.  The bank teller, the postman, the cashier at the grocery store, my two favorite guys at Subway....yeah the list goes on.  Why not spread a little happiness and cheer, right!!!
 I love the little match box treat holders.  They are one of my favorite things to make.  So this year I am using the really cute CottageCutz Halloween release to decorate my boxes. 
 This is the Fancy Witch Shoe and the Filigree Bat with the box open.  I have a package of M & M's inside this one.  I used a small Spellbinders Label Die for the base to build the top of the box.  Tied a ribbon, added a pretty flower, and some sequins for bling and it's done! 
 Here it is closed.  Isn't it sweet!
This one has just a pair of Filigree Bats and notice that little skeleton embellishment.  Got him at Michael's and he is just the right size for these boxes.  My sentiments, by the way, are from a package of K & Company die cuts from my stash.
The last one is made with the Gothic Keys , Rest in Peace Bat Tombstone and the Filigree Bat.  I cut and extra piece for the back of the Tombstone and applied black glitter to make this sparkly.  These were super fun to make!
Thanks for stopping by today to visit and view my creations. 
 I sure do appreciate it.  Happy Crafting!
