trick or treat pillbox

Afternoon all well so far we have only had one rain shower and its not freezing just a little cool, just as well as we are having a new boiler fitted so the engineer keeps going in and out as he drains and flushes the system and we will have no heating or hot water tonight or tomorrow morning. I can see that will be fun explaining to hubby and son when they come home that its boiling kettles for good old fashioned strip washes before work. Hopefully it will be worth it in the long run as we seem to be having a run of things breaking down of late. First the computer, I'm now using sons laptop whilst he's at work (still can't get use to that), then the boiler started playing daft and stopping altogether and then on Sunday as I took the roast out to rest and turned the oven up for the roasties it went bang and now I need a new oven poorly beyond repair. They say things come in 3's but why did it have to be a costly 3. Definitely no new crafty stuff for me for a long while.

Ah well less of my moaning but thanks for listening I feel a bit better my project for today is a wee pill box that I've made for the little girl next door for Halloween, have a feeling there may be more to be made along the same lines. I kept it quite simple and used the fun freebie scarecrow from birdie brown which I fussy cut and just added some faux stitching in black and orange sakura pen around the edge and a hand written sentiment on the back or reverse of the box. now just got to get something to fill it, not decided yet if it will be sweets or a homemade cookie.

I would like to enter this treat box into the following challenges:-

without words-CAS +pumpkins
come and get it-anything faux
glitter n sparkle-add some orange
birdie brown-use freebie
