Marisa's Candy wrapper treat

At my last demo get together Marisa (check out her blog here )had us make these cute little candy wrapper boxes and I was strapping my brain to come up with a candy wrapper for a make and take and thought perfect! She use the Halloween Hoot set which I do not have yet so I had to improvise for my workshop and this is what we did.
Took the razzleberry CS and diecut it with the new candy wrapper die (another LOVE IT- think Miss Piggy saying this in high falsetto- moment!)
then stamped the spider web and Spooky from the Wicked Cool set in black to add some interest to the box, assembled the box then wrapped 1 1/2x 6inch Wicked Fun DSP around the center.

I needed a sentiment that would fit inside a circle and I know I wanted to use the witches shoe from the same Wicked Cool set so I was searching for a sentiment and came across the perfect sentiment on Batty for yOu set-" trick or treat, smell my feet".
I already clingmounted my sets in the past so it was no big deal to use the craft knife to separate the words from the image. Now I have more uses from the same set!

I inked the shoes using pumpkin pie and crushed concord markers onto whisper white then stamped the words in black, punched it out with 1 3/8 inch circle punch then layered it onto a celery CS punched with the scallop circle punch, mounted the whole thing with dimensionals. Using the CS as the base, the candy wrapper is sturdy enough to hold in the candy without any tie at all so you can twist and untwist to get the candy out.
I am just loving this die!

This is the final project! Thanks Marisa for the inspiration!

Lynda, your version is adorable. I love the smell my feet saying with the shoes. You're so clever!
