SSSC meets Allsorts!

My 'excuse' for combining this challenge is simple - I don't do Halloween gifts, cards, etc and will probably end up eating this one myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My little darlings grew out of the 'trick or treat' phase years ago and I'm not spending ages on pretty little wrappers to give to the local children who'll probably tear it off and throw it to the ground before they are a few foot away from my front door!

So until I have grandchildren to entertain I'm happy to combine Halloween challenges ;) !!!

For this weeks challenges with Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Allsorts Challenge I've used a KerryJo stamp (the only Halloween themed item in my craft room!) and paper from DCWV Glitter Stack.

The chocolate bars are Christmas ones from Tesco - 2 packs of 4 for £1.20! and I cut out the 4 new wrappers from an 8x8 paper with more than enough left for the panel behind the image.

The box/bag ..........does that make it a bog or a bax!!!......... is cut from acetate - the shorter side panels are folded over the top of the chocolate bars, hole punched and tied with ribbon. The front and back are simply stapled under the image.

Do you know the hardest thing about this little project - finding somewhere to photograph it!!!!!!!!!!
I've hung it on the back door handle as that was the best place with the least going on in the background - ideally I would have hung it on the ivy outside - like a lot of my cards - but it's gone 11pm and a little dark!
