It's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion and this week the theme is 'Kraft, plus red, black & White'. 

Our sponsors this week are 'QKR' with their massive range of rubber and digi stamps.

I picked 'Little Devil' as I thought this may be the perfect opportunity to get ahead on Halloween bits :) Hahahaha me organised, who ever heard of such a thing!

You may remember at Christmas time I made some sweet jars for presies, well Left over from then I had some Sherbet straws! They are dated until 2015, so plenty of time yet.

The straws didn't really go with the jars, but I thought they would be fine to keep for Halloween this year to give out to the kids ;P

However its a bit plain and boring just giving a sherbet straw or two out, so I decided I would be making some boxes to pop a few in.

Here are two of those boxes :P Each fit 5 sherbet straws in and are not too scarey :)

I cut up two old boxes from my stash and used my silhouette to draw the images onto the card. I did one larger image 

and one smaller image with the words ' Trick or Treat' on the box.

I coloured the images using fired brick distress ink (from a pad).

And the wording was painted using acrylic paint.

For the larger image I made sure it wrapped around the box so the image showed all the way around.

I plan on making more of these in different designs so watch this space ;p
