Merlin's Treat Box

A Halloween treat container was project for the 1st the Let's Face It Friday Peachy Keen Challenge this week.  I made a treat cylinder using a TP roll and decorated it with die cuts from Cricut Paper Doll Dress up and Holiday Cakes cartridges.  I used the wizard cuts including the wizard, all layers of clothing and accessories from PDDU.  I cut the pumpkins, moon, and bat from the border features in Holiday Cakes.  I also used a flower cut from George and Basic Shapes to close the bottom of the cylinder. The designer paper (4" x 6"), card stock, gems, and star twine were from my stash  I used stickles (Broken China and Antique Line) on the wands.  I found the directions to make a TP candy cylinder at Sweet for My Sweets .

Since my grandchildren get so much candy Trick or Treating, I decided to fill the container with Halloween pencils I purchased at Michael's for a dollar. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Sue

Here are the sides of the tube:

The front featuring Merlin.  I wrapped the star twine around the pencils  to make it look like and explosion of magic.

...Merlin's partner the Owl...

...the back with pumpkins, moon, and back...

... and back to the front.

Here are the closeups of the stamped faces:

The Moon is angry because the Bat is trying to block her from the picture.LOL.
