Halloween Candy Box

What do you create from empty SU! button boxes?  They are the handiest little things in the world - perfect for holding all kinds of treats. This one is used for Halloween candy!

The Goulish Googlies Designer Kit has great gift bags, tags, baker's twine and googly eyes. I've had fun creating with them and was looking for something new to do with the tags.
Fill it with black jelly beans, candy corn or maybe even spooky little love notes written out on  Scalloped Circles. Now that could be fun!

A peek at the products and then a mini tutorial!
