It's House Mouse Monday and It's "Anything But a Card"!

Today over at House Mouse & Friends you will find "Anything But a Card!" It's House Mouse Monday and I made a little treat holder for my project. This little "box" is so simple and easy to make - and fun to give! You can find the awesome tutorial HERE. My Scor-Pal made this so fast! I left out the "hole" at the top and put my image there, as I wasn't planning to make this to hang on a bottle.

I stamped Trick or Cheese with Black Stazon ink and colored with my Stampin' Up! markers. The cute candy corn designer paper is by Heidi Grace Designs (got it at A.C. Moore with my friend, Deb!).
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team did and play along! Your card link will be featured later this week on the House Mouse & Friends blog!

Wow, great idea! I definitely have to try this box...I love it. (I always thought that stamp was for the Packers...cheesehead!) :)
(at least I can laugh at all the crazy people who actually wear those things and still say I'm from Wisconsin)

Great project. P.S., I've included a tutorial on my blog for coloring the mice with Copics - just an additional help from the pencils and gamsol. http://mycardz.wordpress.com/2008/10/20/coloring-the-mice/

Glad you're feeling better!

This is WAAAAY so cute! I think I still like the mousies better than the bunnies and the bears.

Such an adorable project!
Thx for the tutorial (guess all HMM vistors will end up with the same project, lol).
I think it's great you made a Halloween project, I'm so fond of it. We don't know candy corn over here, but just looking a this sweet box, assures me I would love it.
