Happy Halloween Pillow Boxes.....{Teacher's Gifts}

Good Morning and Happy Thursday!
We are one more day closer to Friday and the weekend!!
I have be busy making Halloween treats for my youngest son's class as well as Teacher's treats for both of them to hand out.
I have one set of Teacher treats to share with you all today...
I LOVE making pillow boxes! LOVE the different ways you can decorate them and LOVE all the fun treats that can be put inside them!
I made a set of 6 using some new stamps and dies I just got from My Creative Time...
here they are, hope you like them!!!

I used a pillow box cut from the Silhouette Store and sized it in my studio to fit a piece of 6x6 designer paper. The paper I used is all from The Spooky Time Stack from DCVW. Once I had all the boxes cut out, I moved them aside to work on the rosettes.

Those gorgeous rosettes are from the new release over at 
My Creative Time~Scalloped Stitched Rosette Dies and I cut them using some black card stock from my stash. After assembling all the rosettes, I used the new stamp set~ All Around Holidays for the sentiment as well as the pumpkin die from that same set.
To finish these off, I used some ribbon that I had in my HUGE pile of ribbon that has been neglected...LOL, tied a big bow to the top and hot glued the rosette to the front. All this after filling the pillow boxes with some chocolates :)
So there they are...Didn't they turn out adorable???
So happy to say one classroom of treats are done...Now to make teacher treats for my older son and I am done with my Halloween goodies!

That is all I have for you today. Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello and have a GREAT day!
