Bite Me, Eat if You Dare.....

Yeah - seriously.

 Bite Me!

No - not in the ticked off connotation.

I'm talking about biting into the yummy treat kinda thing....

Sit down and get a load of these seriously sweet treat packages I came up with...

I created an ensemble of treat packaging with ease.  No joke, folks, I can whip up about 10 of these in minutes!  

You see, I have this poor Silhouette that's been missing out on the action in my craft room.  Truth be told, I just don't turn it on very often. It was time to give the ol' girl a workout.  

And this week, I did just that!  She got a workout, and I've made an oath to her that she'll not be shut off for long periods of time again!

So, lets get on with the show, ok! 

First up - 

While this might not be very appropriate as a treat container for my kids to take to school, I think it's great for my friends - or if you've got the right kind of co-workers....maybe your boss?  (I can switch out the sentiment for the kids' treats!)

For this one, I cut a Single PB Treat box from some Witches Brew DSP ( I can actually get two on a sheet and cut two at a time!)  Then I mixed some black embossing powder with black ultrafine glitter and heat embossed the web from the photopolymer set - Bite Me. (loving this web - so lifelike!)  I folded every thing up, used one piece of sticky strip to hold it together, then added the Bite Me sentiment and some washi tape.  

Washi tape holds the back closed, and when you lift it, inside is your sweet goodie!

Next up is a fun size candy bar package.

Last one up holds a full sized candy bar.

Here I let the DSP do most of the work.  It just so happened that the skeleton ended up on the front, so I couldn't resist.  I didn't plan it that way....  I gave him a  little button eye patch, and tied some black chevron ribbon on - 

The flap will tuck into the ribbon to hold it shut. 

mmmmm.....I think that Milky Way is calling my name!

While I go off and snack on that, why don't you tell me which one is your favorite?

Great boxes! Do you have an item # from Silhouette that you used? I have one and have yet tried to use it and I want to start using it, so any help, tips or ideas are appreciated! Oh, I grew up in Denison, Iowa!
