For my project I decided to make a combination of a Halloween lantern and treat box!
It took a while to make but really is simply 2 4" square boxes on top of each other with a removable roof.

This little witch is so cute and so I couldn't make the house too spooky :)
The windows were cut with a spellbinders die and then backed with patterned vellum to allow the light from the flame less candle to show through.
The bats were cut from a border accent and then backed with black cardstock spritzed with Smooch Shimmer in Vanilla Sugar to give them some glimmer. They were then attached to the roof with bakers twine. I also created a chimney from a scored cylinder and added some batting to the top for smoke.
Around the back of the house there is a door to get at the goodies.
This is where you put the candy and you access it by taking of the lantern box top.
You remove the roof to add the flame less candle for light.
It is so hard to photograph it to show the flickering candle but you can see a little of the glow from behind the vellum.
I really hope you liked this one, it was fun to make (if a little exasperating while making the roof as I had no measurements so i had to wing it for a while :))
