All The Ingredients You Need

For a Happy Halloween!

Today's project is for The Cuttlebug Spot.  This week the challenge is to make a Halloween Treat Container.  If you don't celebrate Halloween you can make a treat holder for a birthday or Christmas etc.  I choose to make  test tube holder.  I have been seeing these around for the last few years and have wanted to make one.  Yet every year the stores in my area are all sold out.  This year I was lucky enough to be at Joann's early and get my hands on a package.  I used a template from Lisa Somerville, you can find the template here. he stamps I used are from My Favorite Things and the set is called Totally Witchin'.

Here is a close up of the front.

I am also entering this in the challenge this week for Simon Says.  The challenge this week is to create something with a Halloween theme.  You can find the details here.
I hope you have time to play this week and don't forget to include some dry embossing on your project.  Before you get started though be sure to stop by the rest of the design team and see their gorgeous creations.
Thank you for stopping by.
