Chocolate Box - 31DOH Day 15

Welcome to the 15th day of 31 Days of Halloween, hosted by the awesome Smeared Ink! There are many awesome and talented crafters in this blog hop, which you'll find listed on the right, and you can start right back at the beginning if you've just arrived here :) There will be treasure hunts and prizes to win, so don't forget to visit everyone!

Today I have a little tin that I've altered.  I bought these tins ages ago at Woolworths when the collector cards were in store and I'm so happy that I've finally found a use for them!

I used some Halloween themed paper to wrap around the tin.  The edges have been inked in black ink.  I also added a piece of the paper to the top of the lid, and I inked and distressed it.  

Then I added some embellies.  I started with a white doily that I scrunched up to create a rosette.  Then I inked it.  Then I added a small patty pan.  To the right I glued on a little skull that's a digi image from Dilly Beans Stamps.  I also added some sequins and black flowers.


Here's a close-up wher eyou can see the googly yes on the spider.  I simply turned the tiny patty pan inside out and glued it on.  I also added googly yes to the skull.

Thanks for visiting, your next stop on the hop is Airless Chambers.
