The Creative Paper Trade ~ Tip Top Shape #3

Well hello are you up for some sweet treats today? I have a funky little Halloween project that I put together for our Tip Top Shape Challenge at The Creative Paper Trade. This time our shape is stars!

 
I picked up this little metal take out box at Michales and decided to jazz it up with some funky Halloween colors and elements. I started by die cutting my stars using flannel fabric and cardstock. I glued my large flannel star to the tin then layered on the smaller star and punched Halloween digi image designed by Andrea. This is dressed up with a few little pompoms and gems. Next I wrapped more of the green pompoms around the handle and decorated one side with a bow made from felt, fabric and twine. A few more stars, a digi, gems and twine dance along the handle. 

This is filled to the brim with Hershey Bliss chocolates! Our neighborhood does the "You've been boo'd" thingy. If you're not familiar with this someone runs to your door after dark, rings the bell or knocks and leaves you a Halloween treat! We have some friends on the street who don't have children or who's kids are grown (like our son!), but we all play along too. Sometimes even Max gets boo'd! Anyway I thought this was a good adult treat!!

Thanks for popping in today. 
You still have time to play along at The Creative Paper Trade, better get busy! ~Lisa
