Chocolate Baroque: Halloween Treats

Hello again, friends! I've got a couple of projects ideas to house your Halloween treats.  The first is in the shape of a grave - complete with tombstone and grassy border! The web and mushrooms are from Put A Spell On You. The Trick or Treat sentiment is from Spookilicious.

Here's a closer look at the Bat-Owl Hocus Pocus which I coloured with Faber-Castell polychromos. After colouring, I fussy cut and adhered it to the headstone which I cut using Spellbinders Labels 4 die.

To make the grassy border I snipped a strip of green card and inked it with Hickory Smoke.

The treats (or tricks) go in the pull out drawer of the matchbox.

The second treat bag is a simpler affair. The Cat is from Hocus Pocus and the sentiment is from Halloween Edges, both heat embossed with WOW Ebony EP. After colouring the moon with Faber-Castell Polychromos. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Standard Circles die and inked the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Finally, I matted it on a piece of black card cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Circle die. The sentiment is from Halloween Edges. I used WRMK Black Baker's Twine to tie the bag.

To decorate the back of the bag, I stamped the tree and sentiment from Put A Spell On You  and the bats from Hocus Pocus with VersaFine Black Onyx. To create the box I used WRMK Gift Bag Punch Board.
