Halloween Sucker Holder

A trip to my local craft store and a new idea for Halloween crafts with MME Lost and Found paper.
It took alot of brain power to figure out how to make the sweet Maggies evil for the occasion.  I prefer girly things but a few new challenges popped up and so this is what I came up with.


I figured out this box myself with a 12x12 piece of card stock. Made a bottom and a top.  Then I cute MME DP for each of the 4 sides and adorned every side with Magnolia Lace Doohickey.  I made 2 different Magnolia  Doohickey fences and used MME brads packet and Jolee's pumpkins.


Each Magnolia is colored in Copics.   The bats, kitty and Boo are embossed stamped images from SU.  I used Twine for the bars on Edwins jail as well as doodled around the window.  Each scene also has erry sayings, but a bit meaningful.


I made Tilda's hat and used stickles on her while she celebrates the poison she will give out on halloween, so hard to make her look naughty.


Two sides come together as around the corner is the door to ????, you don't want to go there!


I made the sign with the bat and the door I used Coordinations cardstock and ran it through my wood grain embossing plate from Papertrey Ink and then sanded it.  Around the edges I ran glue and then flocked over it.  I added a brad and made my own hands grasping the door.


The top I made holes for the suckers and fringed all round the box.  I wrapped the suckers in Melissa Frances Crepe paper, tied them with Twine, made their faces with marker and then popped them into each hole that I made at the top of the box lid.


Here is a full view of the idea.


I would like to enter my box into the following challenges

Thank you all for the awesome comments you have been gracing my blog with!!
Have a great evening!
