Inspiration from the Blogosphere!

Halloween is just around the corner so when I spotted these adorable treat boxes over on the Scor-Pal blog, I just knew I had to share them here.

A Black Cat Treat Box

Gina used the Square Treat Box tutorial from from the Scor-pal website and added a cat rosette that was inspired by a home decor project from Martha Stewart.

To make the cat rosette, cut 2 pieces of black card stock, 1.5" x 12". Score every half an inch and pleat fold.

Attach the two strips together with Scor-tape to form a circle. Press the circle down in the center to form a rosette, and glue in place.

Add pieces of card stock to decorate the face. Apply glue to the eyes, ears and mouth of the cat. Cut a small piece of U Cut It Foam (Stacked pop dots could work as an alternative), and fill in the hole in the center of the rosette. Color orange with a copic marker.

Make a loop of metallic thread, and tie a knot in the center. Clip the ends to make whiskers. Place this on the UCutIt Foam (pop dots). Glue the nose over the top.

Complete the Square Treat Box, following the tutorial, and add the Scaredy-Cat to the top of the box.

Here are a few more views of this fun project:
