Bah - Humbug!!!


This week over on the Stampotique Designers challenge blog, Maria wants us to make favour boxes.  I decided to go for the humbug shaped ones.  They are real easy to make, take a square, put tape on 3 inner edges and then on the remaining outer.  Make a tube, squeeze the bottom edges together, put your favour inside and then squeeze the opposite way to make the top.  I then ran the ends through a paper crimper.

By the way, don't forget to decorate before you start sticking!!!

Wow, so easy to make but they look great! The big question is, are they filled with humbugs?

No Deb, they're not filled with anything. They were just samples. But they are so quick and easy to make I thought I might make some to give to the kids at Halloween and put sweets inside.
