Anything But a Card Challenge 4: Halloween or Fall or Fall colors



This week at Anything But a Card we have one of my favorite ever challenges- you guessed it- Hallween!  But if you don't do Halloween, you can create something with a Fall theme or simply use Fall colors!  No excuses :)

I made a few (okay 8) of these pumpkin boxes for people at work.  I found them at the Dollarama and couldn't resist!  I painted and added some details here and there- and will put a LED tea light in them when I give them to the folks.  I think they came out kinda cute!  Excuse the messy background on the pics.  Just keepin' it real.








I later decided to add a lining on the back wall of the box and floor with some Halloween paper- it helps the little tea lights show up better.  I also added a little cat and bat to the sides of the boxes.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will join us at Anything But a Card for this fun challenge!

Really love these fun pumpkin boxes Carla! Came over to see how you made them - wish we had one of those shops in UK! I love what you did to the outside and putting the paper inside is a really great finishing touch. Have a good week.
