Halloween in 3D Blog Hop with Joy's Life!

Welcome to the hop! It's sure to be a spooky good one!  Here's the hop order, in case you happened upon my blog by accident:

Julie: --you are HERE 
Kendra: -- go here NEXT 

There's lots of great 3D ideas out there for Halloween.  I had trouble figuring out just what to make.  Then, I found these cute treat boxes, and knew what I wanted to do.  I'm getting together with two good friends late in October, and I thought these would be perfect to tuck a few sweet treats in:

Aren't these fun? The sentiments are from Joy's Life Halloween Puns stamp set.
You can find this set, and all of Joy's wonderful stamps HERE in her store.
This coffin box cutting file is from the Silhouette online store, and can be found HERE. The boxes were cut out on my Silhouette Cameo. I cut them out with black Close To My Heart cardstock, then heavily inked the edges with CTMH White Daisy pigment ink. The sentiments were stamped on CTMH Gypsy colored cardstock.  The banner shape was created using the Designer Edition software, and adjusting a banner shape to fit inside the coffin box. The bats, also cut out on the Silhouette, were left over from a project earlier in the week, and fit perfectly.  Lucky me! I used some Totally White twine from Trendy Twine

Halloween is all about the candy, so how about some blog candy? I have some Halloween stamps, ribbon, Halloween rub-ons, and embellishments to give away. 
To be eligible to win, please follow my blog and leave a comment on this post.  I will choose the winner and announce it with my Joy's Life post on Monday, Sept. 23.
It's time to go see what Kendra has for you today.  Knowing Kendra, it's got to be fantastic! Have fun, but don't get spooked!
