Halloween Treat Boxes...

Happy Halloween!

My favorite holiday of the year... even beats out my birthday.
So as the night is only hours away,I was preparing for my son Daniel's Halloween for his special education class.

He loves Holidays and he loves to share it and his culture with his classmates. 
So we make treat boxes for his class for all our  holidays that we celebrate.
 As an Sicilian and Irish family, we not only get the standard holidays but we get a few more that are not on everyone's calendar and this is the fun part for us.

So for my Littlest Leprechaun, I stood up till 2:30 this morning filling and adding the finishing touches to 22 Halloween treat boxes.

Before I forget, for my  little Leprechauns a All Hallow's Eve wish:

Happy Halloween... for my 3 little leprechauns: 

In Gaelic:

Oíche Shamhna Shona, mo leipreacháin Little ... Féadfaidh sé an t bhiotáille tú déileálann agus aon cleasanna ... Bí sábháilte agus nach siúl sa ghleann ag an uair an chloig witching ...

and once more in Italian:

Halloween felice, stasera il morto ritorna di nuovo a casa. Esso Tutto è Santifichi Eve...

On to the treat boxes...

I used the following to make the boxes:
DCWV 12x12 cardstock
Halloween Cardstock from my stockpile
Pillow box template
Every kind of adhesive I owned
Orange ink from Rubber Stampede
Whale of a punch 
Baker's Twine in Orange, Yellow and Brown
Happy Days - Happy Halloween stamp from Cardz Tv
Wrap It Up Cricut Cartridge

I loved making these for my Daniel. 
I know he loves them too, and I am pretty sure his classmates will be excited.
These did take time, mostly because I had to find the right adhesive, as not all adhesive will stick to the glittered and foiled cardstock.
I will be using this shape for all the holidays this year. It fit everything nicely and was easy to make.

Now that our home is decorated, the cards are made, the treat boxes filled and the Halloween gifts are made and ready to be handed out to bus drivers, teachers, aids, nurses and all the people who care for my special little leprechauns, I am ready for the celebration to begin.

I hope you have a safe 
Happy Halloween...
