Up-Cycled Halloween Treat Tote

 Hi Everyone, Michelle here with a festive Halloween treat tote!
After we happily ate the mochi treats in this box, I thought the container would make a nice gift tote!


I removed the cord and covered the outside with a glue stick and glittery black tissue paper. 


 I re-punched the holes for the handle and added some green ribbon in place of the pink cord that came with the box. I knotted the ends and secured them with tape inside.

 Then I let my imagination run wild as I decorated the tote. For the top, I used Orange Dew Drops, green glitter glue. For the flap I used Glittered Spider Web paper, Glittered Ghost paper, Glittered Pumpkin paper, Red and more orange Dew drops.
 This  Halloween Transylvania line is on sale now 20% off!
 The tag was created from Halloween Stickers, accented with green glitter glue and decorated with some Connie's Crystals. The striped paper is the back side of Orange Bones paper.

 The back of the tote was decorated with some googly eyes, spider web paper, more orange Dew Drops, and sticker embellishments.

The front of the tote was bedazzled by an assortment of what you can find all over the box!
I also added a glittered a chipboard pumpkin and crepe paper fringe behind the Halloween sticker.
At the bottom of the tote I added some of the spooky fence from Haunted House.
I plan to fill this  tote with some Halloween treats and give to Dyllans's 4th grade Teacher.
Do you think she will like it?
