The Crafty Pad #144 Halloween

Good Morning all!
It's Sunday & it's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad once more!
This week the theme for Challenge #144 is Halloween!

We are kindly sponsored by the lovely 

who is offering a £10 Voucher to spend in her wonderful online shop
Here's my little project!

It's a little halloween treat holder!
I used some of Jak Heath's Freebie Spooky papers.
The first checked one was printed straight onto a piece of  A4 card.
The second, the orange batty one was printed onto matt photo paper!
I cut both out using a grand nesaibillities die then stuck the batty paper
 on the reverse side. I scored either side leaving a 1cm base & folded.
To make a little folder, a bit like a taco shell!

The image is called Halloween & is available at The Crafty Pad Designs
I coloured this with Promarkers, cut with a corresponding nestie & matted 
onto light weight black card.

I added a little Card candi detail

I punched two holes in each side & threaded with ribbon from my stash!
I tied the ribbon in a large knot & secured with a little pinflair glue to 
stop it slipping through the holes

You can just about see the pack of sweets peeking out at the top!
I hope you can & play at The Crafty Pad this week for our Halloween Challenge!
I'd like to enter my project in a few challenges this week!
