Welcome to the "Trick or Treat" Blog Hop
If you just happened by today be sure to go back to the beginning and start with Angies so you don't miss any wonderful stops along the way. If you came from Monica then you are on the right path.  If you get lost along the way the list is below!
Have fun and have a great weekend!!

Today we have for you a fun project you can make to put candy or a small gift in for Halloween using your cricut!

I had a lot of fun making this and you can even make it bigger if you wanted too and even use it for other occasions to put gifts into.
I hope you enjoy it!

Oh yes, I do have candy!!  but it is going to be a surprise, so you know what you have to do and make sure to leave a way for me to contact you:)
