Halloween 2013

Hi Everyone,
I was determined to get a Halloween post up before August ended.  In the past by the end of August I usually have 3 Halloween projects done and am ready to reproduce them on a large scale.  This summer I was so caught up in putting the house back together after the construction that my crafty good time was much less.  Then I got caught up in the whole rubber band thing and I am still in love with the loom! Well at least I have been making some black and orange bracelets.  I have always loved the bread tag shape that was taken from those little plastic tabs that hold the bread bag closed.  For crafting it has been around for a long time and Stampin' Up has re-sparked the trend with a thinlit die in this years catalog.  Of course all the SU peeps are making a box out of it.  I really wanted to make a version that has a narrow base and was cut in one piece.  And as always MTC made quick work of that. Here is my picture of the box I made.  It holds a fun size M&M pack really nicely.
Here is a picture of the .PDF file:
