I really got a lot of use out of my Tim Holtz rub-ons.  I like adding some spooky words and phrases to make sure the recipient knows that this is a scary treat.

To close the boxes, I attached eyelets and then tied a bow with some Lawn Fawn twine.

Here’s a wicked witch, stamped and heat-embossed on plain card stock. Stamps are by Waltzingmouse.
