Halloween - Simples!

I bought a new Pillow Box die from the Tim Holtz range to make neat little boxes for my jewellery sales and gifts.  They're ideal, as when not in use they fold completely flat for transportation, unlike the bags and boxes I had previously been using.  I had a little play with it to see how many shims etc it needed in my Big Kick (it's definitely best used with a crease pad) and whilst I was there I made this quick little Halloween candy box.
 I've used the new Seasonal Distress papers with Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks rubbed over the top and some black Stickles for added sparkle.

The papers are divided into panels so they can easily be cut apart to make tags/toppers.  My tag has been highlighted with a bit of black Stickles and had the word 'Spooky' stamped on it.
