Tombstone Treat Boxes

Happy Halloween Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! Today I am sharing My Tombstone Treat Boxes as my Design Team Inspiration for Paper Nest Dolls using Ragdoll Sally.

I had a lot of fun colouring this cutie with my Copic Markers! In fact, I coloured her skin in three different tones. So, I created a poll in The Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration Facebook Group on which skin tone was the most popular. The most popular green skin tone was used to create a card (Link to it here), but I couldn’t resist colouring the other two to create my treat boxes.

Since it’s Halloween what better way to celebrate with treat boxes to give out to all those cute trick-or-treaters! The Stampin’ Up! Tombstone Treat Boxes were so fun to decorate with lots of little bits from my stash! And the finishing touch was my coloured Ragdoll Sallys!
