Totally Papercrafts - For a Child

Happy, happy Friday! This week's Totally Papercrafts challenge is a fun one - For a Child. It doesn't matter what the occasion, just make a card (or other project) that you would give to a child. Every year I am a vendor at a large local craft show on the first Saturday in October, so this is craft show season for me. With this in mind, I made this cute little Halloween candy holder just perfect for your favorite little goblin. I made these for the Hatton show last year, and they were a big hit. You can see one of last year's cartons here: Freakishly Fun.

Supplies: Halloween kid stamp - dollar bin at Michaels, sentiment (Hero Arts), scraps from stash, purple cs (Hobby Lobby), Copics, ribbon (Michaels), mini binder clip

I'm not normally very handy with 3D projects, but these little boxes are very easy to make. (And surprisingly pretty quick, too.) I posted this little tutorial last year if you'd like to try one yourself: Milk Carton Tutorial.

Head on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog to see the adorable child-related projects made by my wonderful fellow DT members. And play along for a chance to win a prize from this week's sponsor, Meljen's Designs!
