Halloween in 3D Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!
Welcome to the Halloween in 3D Blog Hop!

I'm so glad you could join us today!
If you arrived here from Maria's blog, then you are in the right spot!
If you just happened to stumble across the hop on my blog today and would like to start at the beginning, just hop on over and see Joy @ Joy's Life.

For my project, I decided to make a little haunted house filled with some candy.

I found this adorable little house in the Gimme Candy Boxes kit from and knew I had to make it as a gift for my hubby for Halloween. I added a spiderweb "gutter" to my roof using a border punch.  I also wanted to add some bats "flying" around the house so I simply curled some thin wire and sandwiched it in between some bats that I punched out. I then glued the bottom of my wire in between the roof and roof layer. I love how it turned out!

Here is a side view so you can see the thickness of the box.
 I was able to fit quite a bit of fun size candy bars in there.

For my sentiment, I wanted it to look like a decoration on the front of the door. All I did was simply stamp "Happy Haunting" from the Halloween Puns Stamp Set
onto a piece of Kraft cardstock and then trimmed it down and cut notches out at each end to give it the appearance of a broken board. I added a little hemp cord to "hang" my sign on the door.

There are so many fabulous greetings on the Halloween Puns stamp set!

Wonderful haunted house. Very eerie and fun Halloween decoration.

How awful lovely of you to entice us with that mysterious stack of spooky paper. Of course, you are exacting tribute from us......but at least it isn't by removing one of our kidneys for a terrible spell or something. I already keep an evil eye on you by email, but now I am also following you around like a macabre zombie by Google FIEND. Yaaaaaaa-haaaaaa-haaaaaa!!!
