More hands, more candy by Sharon Caudle

Hello AI Fans!!
I sure hope you're not sick of looking a Halloween fun yet, cause I'm having a blast making up these projects!! Today I've got a little treat box to show you. This little lady is available in full size as the Be Scary Set #4521 at Art Impressions, but today I'm showing you how I used the smaller version More Candy#4641 that is available at AC Moore as a wood mounted stamp! She's PERFECT for popping onto a small treat box! This treat box is about 4" tall to the top of the stem and about 3 3/4" wide.  And this adorable stamp fits perfectly on the front of the pumpkin.  It's so easy to make something like this. Just draw out a pumpkin shape or just simply layer up some oval dies! Be sure to use some distress ink around the edges to make the individual pieces stand out. And then I always like to pop up the front center piece with foam tape.
Once you make your pumpkin shape,  simply create a small box to attach to the back of the pumpkin, and you've got a self made treat box!  Or you can use one of the many files available out there for a die cutting machine. This one fits three snack sized candy bars perfectly.
 Copics used:
E000, E00, E11, R21, R20, C1, C3, C5, YG11, YG13, YG17, YR12, YR14, YR18

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today and hope you get some time this weekend to get crafty!


  1. Eek!! This is so cute - I want one :o) What a great idea, Sharon!

  2. Such a fun idea--great coloring too!

  3. Cute cute treat box! I love 3D fun that you drew the pumpkin shape! I also love creating my own patterns. Great job!

    1. Oh gosh, I didn't draw this, Diane. I was just suggesting for someone that doesn't have a die cutting machine. I surely didn't mean to imply that I drew this. But thanks for having such faith in me. LOL!

  4. Super sweet treat box! Great idea, I might just have to make one for myself!
