Morning Muffins!

I know you'll be surprised to see a little treat box from me! Anything more than a tent fold card generally brings me out in a cold sweat, but I really fancied making some little Mini Milk Cartons! Aren't they cute?

In FayeWorld, I plan to make more of these for Sweet Cheeks to take to Nursery for his little friends on Halloween. However, the reality of not flippin' my stack when I'm trying to assemble another twelve of them, (even though it's very easy!) may well bring me back to Earth with a bump! Plus, I'll probably scoff all the jellybeans! ;)

I've used the Pumpkin Link Stamp from the fabby Halloween section at Rainbow Studios. I just love all the different faces! By the way, the lovely Girls over at Rainbow Studios are currently offering a whopping 20% off any stamp from their New Christmas Range. Check out all the details at the Rainbow Studios Blog.

The gorgeous Black Gingham Ribbon, Orange Delight Satin Ribbon and Black Mini Ric Rac are from Sew Sweet.

So, what got me making spooky treats? Well, it's all Louise's fault! It's her Challenge over at Cupcake this week, and she's chosen... Halloween! Brilliant, or what? We're joined by our scrummy monthly sponsors; Polka Doodles and Scrap Affair. And this week, we welcome back Cupcake Cards and Crafts. I hope you have time to pop over and see all The Cupcakes gorgeous work.

I'll be back in a few hours with my Pollycraft Monday post...

Wishcraft said...

Hmm now you've got me wondering if I could make something like this for Dex to take into nursery too... but then would I also have to provide Morgan's entire class with treats too (there are 34 children in Morgan's class - eek!)? I might end up regretting seeing your cute boxes! Lisa x
