Birthday Party Fun!!!!

This was for my daughter's 10Th birthday party today and since it being so close to Halloween I decided to make these cute coffin boxes from the Martha Stewart website. I filled them with as much candy as I could for the kids and what didn't fit I put the rest in a mummy face bag I bought a the local dollar store.The stickers on the front are the from Micheal's Craft store.
Challenges entered I know these aren't a card but they are so perfect for halloween :)
Cute Card Thursdays - Spook Fest -coffins are spooky/cute too
Pile it On - Ready for Halloween
One Stop Craft -Halloween
Creative Friday - Halloween
Stampartic -Halloween
Stampin' B's - Halloween

And the best part of the party was the cake..........

Spaghetti and Meatballs.

I found this in a recipe book I bought on cupcakes decorating and made a bit of a change to it by making it more or less a 9 inch cake. The kids couldn't believe it they really thought I put spaghetti on it.LOL. Oh and the great part is the meatballs are chocolate covered in strawberry jam.The cake was a hit and the party was priceless.

Thanks for peeking.

Last Year I made this so quick and easy too

I cut the designer paper into strips using a brad to fasten the top and bottom together. With the tiny scraps of paper I curledthe paper to make a vine effect at the top. With 3 different colours of green I used the LEAF sizzix die cut for a quick and easy way to make leaves.

Enjoy Anne
