Every month or so, my mom, sisters and I get together for a girtls' day out. Most times we go to my single sister's house where the distractions of kids and husbands is absent. Often we invite my daughter, who is a senior in high school. Now that I have a daughter-in-law, we invite her too. And every so often, each of us brings a little gift for the others.
Winnie, a Squigglefly digi image, for this week's challenge, that I had to make more. Then I found a fantastic deal at Goodwill, and as you can see, I have a candy box for each of them!!
These little houses even came with the little scoop you see in the forefront of the photo. I really had a hard time embellishing the container--not because I didn't have enough Halloween goodies to put on--I had too many!! I wanted people to be able to see the goodies inside, so I had to be very conservative with my embellishments.
I lined the bottom of my box with felt fusions black spider webs. Lucky I had some spray adhesive--nothing else worked!! I attached a piece of patterned paper to the oputside bottom of the box, with the pattern viewable from the inside. I also attached another piece to the back protion of the roof. A Halloween sticker sits on the front of the roof, and a few stars are scattered around the sides of the box.
Winnie, by artist Jane Beljo, stands waiting to welcome guests to take their treats. I colored her with Copics and used dimensional tape to attach her. The front part of the roof opens, and the scoop has a slot in which it rests with the handle sticking out, just like at those bulk candy stores.
Do you like Winnie? She's available for purchase--the nice thing about digi's is that you get them FAST! right to your email. You can also resize them, turn them around and even print in different colors (although I haven't tried that one yet LOL).
