trick or treat ...

Can you believe today is the last day of September!?  I don't know where this year is going - it's flying by too fast.  BUT ... that means tomorrow is day one of my favorite month of the year - October!  And while fall in Colorado isn't exactly my ideal fall (no bright colors, very few pumpkin patches, etc.) I still manage to hunt out what I can!  And ... make a lot of fall-themed crafty things!  Like this treat box ...

The box goes together SO fast, especially if you have a Scor-Pal. 

(An aside ... I never woulda' guessed how much I would use a Scor-Pal when I first saw it.  I passed it by time and time again because a.) it was a pricey item and 2.) I thought it was kinda' silly.  *laugh*  My Mom had one and after I used hers ... I was smitten.  I use mine ALL the time now.  It's one of my must-have tools.)


Once the base of the box was put together, I added the cuff of black polka dots around the top.  I did this after it was together to make sure I had the pieces places in the right spots.  (If you didn't want to cut the cuff into four seperate pieces, you could leave it as one and score it at the same dimensions as the box corners.)  Once that was done I attached the handle with silver brads, wrapped the ribbon around (stuck the ribbon in place with glue dots), and added my stamped and cut-out images (also added with glue dots.

Julie shared the box (and the downloadable template) on the A Muse News blog yesterday.  So check that out if you'd like to download the pattern!
