We made these for our kids teachers. Very simple & easy. Take a clean veggie or soup can, take off label put a line of liquid glass down the back of the can. Wrap with crape paper a few times then glue some googly eyes on with liquid glass & draw a mouth with a marker. Put a cellophane bag inside the can put candy in it tie off with a Halloween ribbon & wala! you have mummy.....

Treat Boxes for teachers

I had fun doing these. It was my first time trying this so the first one I made didn't come out very well, but I kept going & I think the rest came out cute. I didn't want anything to scary being they are for my kindergarten & 4th teachers. I bought the coffins at Michael's, I took off the latch painted the wooden boxes when they were dry I used versa mark & embossing powder. I the colored the frankenstein & bat which is the one open with ink & a blendy pen. For the circle I cut out a circle, then embossed, inked the bat put glue & glitter. I also stamped an image on the inside. I then cut out strips of black cardstock then punched with bats to use as a border, put back on the hinges & wala! a cut little coffin. These will be filled with candy to give to the teachers.
