Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #243: Tag, Bag or Box


Hello and Happy Tuesday.  Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week??  I can't.  This year really flew by quickly.  I can't wait to celebrate with our friends this week.  Lots of good food and most importantly spending time with good friends and family.  I think Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  I don't go out on Black Friday any more.  I just don't like the crowds, especially when you can order most everything online while wearing pajamas and drinking coffee!  That's my idea of shopping.

On to my project for this week.  I made a pillow box and filled it with Hershey Kisses:

Pillow Box: CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge
Leaves: Cricut Design Space Creativebug
Paper: DCWV
Sentiment: Stampin' Up "Good Greetings
Ink: CTMH "Autumn Terracotta"

Happy Tuesday and welcome to our new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.  This week's challenge is Happy Halloween.  There have been so many wonderful Halloween projects on our blog recently and I have loved viewing all of them.  For our last Halloween themed project this year I decided to make treat bags. I just started a new job a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would bring my department some yummy treat bags for Halloween (filled with candy of course!).  Since the bags have a bit of a sheen to them, the photo is not the greatest.
