Scary Pumpkin Treat Box and Luminary

Today I bring to you a 2 in 1 - Pumpkin Treat Box and Luminary.
Here you can see it as a treat box and a pretty good size treat box too, 4 1/2 wide x 4 1/4 high.

 Filled with lots of yummy chocolate treats!

Here is a view of the back.

The sides.

I'm not sure if you can see it in the photos but I did give the pumpkin some texture and it really looks very similar to the real thing.
And now what this treat box looks like as a luminary...scary!!!!
I used these items to create my Pumpkin Treat Box and Luminary:
  • Design Studio
  • Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge - pumpkin
  • October 31st Cricut cartridge - face of the pumpkin - Using the Design Studio I hid the outer contours and just used the face and placed inside the pumpkin (so it would be cut out of the pumpkin)
  • Fiskars Texture Plate (carpet) - on the pumpkin
  • brown ink - on the edges
  • Michael's $1.00 Wooden stamp - on the back
I am entering this Pumpkin Treat Box and Luminary in the following challenges:


  1. Now I thought he couldn't get any better with a Reeses's peanutbutter cup inside, but that little candle really makes all the difference! Fabulous gourd inspired project!! Thanks for playing along with us at HDH this week!

  3. This is so cute I just love the pumpkin the candy looks good to.
