HALLOWEEN BLOG PARTY – 13th HOUR CLOCK GIVEAWAY, FREE TREAT BOX TEMPLATE & HALLOWEEN IMAGES

It’s all treats today and no tricks!  For my contribution to the Halloween Blog Party hosted by Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist, I have all kinds of goodies for you. 


GIVEAWAY DETAILS
First, is a giveaway of a 13th Hour Halloween altered clock.  To enter in the drawing just leave a comment on this post or email me using the Email Me button in the right hand column of the blog.  On the morning of Halloween October 31st, I’ll use Random.org to select a winner.
If you would like to make your own 13th Hour Halloween clock below is a list of some of the Alpha Stamps supplies I used for this project.

VINTAGE HALLOWEEN TREAT BOX TEMPLATE
How about making your own vintage treat boxes.  These can be used for a party or for special tricker treaters.  They are super simple to make.  Below is the template.
I glued decorative paper to the back of the template before assembling.
The template fits on on 8 1/2" x 11" paper (of course you can always re-size it).  To download the template, click on the image to expand it, right-click and select Save As.

FREE VINTAGE HALLOWEEN IMAGES FOR YOUR ART
