love me some kraft boxes

A few weeks ago, The Party Studio posted a challenge on their facebook page.  The winner would get 12 kraft-colored or coloured, if you live in Australia :) boxes. 
My idea won!!!  
Pauline sent the boxes right away.  I was so excited to get them. 

This weekend I finally got a chance to try out my 'winning idea'.

Here's what I started with...
scrapbook paper, glue dots, milk jug lids, aluminum foil & the fabulous boxes!

I used the side of the box as my template and cut out some green card stock.  I cut a small strip of black scrapbook paper to look like hair.  I also cut 2 small pieces of black paper for eyes (and used a hole punch to add to the eyes).  Aluminum foil covered the milk jug lids & glue dots held everything to the box.

It was hard to get a shot with both 'ears'...but I promise they are both there :)

If I had fewer guests (prepping for a big party this Saturday) and more time, 
I would totally use these a Halloween favor boxes.  
I can see ghosts, pumpkins & spiders hanging out with Frank.
Even orange and black polka dots would be cute!! 
So many possibilities! 

I actually LOVE the boxes just the way they are. 

Check out The Party Studio.  Such cute party goodies!
