Pillow Box Halloween Treat

If you haven't caught the Big Shot bug yet, let me tempt you. Shelli demo'd it on a local Utah station and I knew I had to find some acetate! You can see the video a few posts down.
Anyhoooo.....I got my acetate at Michael's in the fine arts section. Here is what the tablet looks like.
They are 9"x12" and come in a tablet of 25 sheets.
To make the box, you use the Pillow Box Bigz die . The sandwich layer is the cutting pad, the shims that come with the crease pad, the die cut, your acetate, then the crease pad.
I filled mine with Halloween M&M's, tied some Black Gingham ribbon around it to hold it closed. Then I stamped the tag image from Eat, Drink & Be Scary, onto Whisper White and cut the image out with Small Tag Punch, and the used the larger Tag Punch to cut the layer of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. added some more Black Gingham ribbon to the tag, and attached it to the box with Mini glue dots.
Now you can make your own party favors for a Baby or Bridal Shower, Birthday parties, Wedding, and on and on and on!
