Trick or Treat box

Hi everyone!  Today I have a fun Halloween treat box to share.  I made this from from FSJ's Popcorn Box and before I assembled it I die cut 2 small bats from the Which, Witch die set and lined the openings with a Clearview sheet (acetate).  Depending on what you put inside the box you could skip the clearview sheets as the bats opening are not that large.
I had some fun with the banner part, I just stamped a skull image on circle pieces and adhered them to some Journey thread.  You could make this banner as simple or elaborate as you want.

Soooooo, my boys are now 10 and 11 and reached the stage where they prefer to just have masks as costumes.  Gone are the days of the full head to toe costumes (I miss those cute ninjas...).  Bright side, easier and cheaper for me!  So Ryan, my youngest, chose a "Smilie" emoticon mask (yeah, that's a thing) and Daniel got a Minecraft Creeper head.

As for my costume?  Well, it's going to be POURING RAIN here, so for the first time I'm staying behind and answering the door to the trick or treaters.  I'll be wearing a funky witch hat complete with dangling black spiders and face make up to match.  And I did a fun and easy Halloween manicure.
Side note,  we get a TON of kids to the door and we usually run out of candy, so this year I bought 8 pounds!  Whereas my mom gets no trick or treaters.  What about you?  Do you live in a busy neighborhood?  How many pounds of candy do you pass out?
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Halloween!!  Here's a close up pic.
