Cauldron Treats

I haven't been able to get much paper crafting done the past few days as I've been busy with my loom knitting in preparation for my first craft show in a couple of weeks.  However, I did take some time today to put together this cauldron treat holder from SVG Cuts. 
I was amazed at how big this cauldron was once it was completed and it's sturdier than I expected too.  I love the way it all came together.  It was easy to do and I enjoyed trying to decide what folders to use for the embossing on my panels.  In all I used four different ones.
For my candies I admit I didn't wrap and pretty up all of them - nor did I have enough to actually fill my cauldron.  (Remember, I said it was larger than I expected.)  But I did decorate up a couple handfuls of various candies.  For this I used scraps of paper from one of my Recollections Halloween mat stacks.  I love this particular pack of paper and I am going to be very sad when it's all gone.  I love the prints and colors - not too cutesy but not too creepy either. 
On my wrappers you'll notice a couple of bats and pumpkins.  The bats are from the Cricut cartridge Happy Hauntings and the pumpkins are from Designer's Calendar.  The stamped sentiments are from three different sets by Jaded Blossom:  Halloween Candies 2 and Spooky Labels.
The label on the front of my cauldron is a mini tag from yet another mat stack - Recollections Journal Tags.  The sentiment on my tag is also from Jaded Blossom - this time using the Pick Your Poison set.  And those black 'dots' on each side of my tag.  Those are skittles from the Back to School set by DoubleClick Connections.
And now I'm off to enter this project in to the following challenges:
Jaded Blossom - Any Treat - Ends September 21
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Mix and Match 3 patterned paper (used for my candy wrappers/decorations) - Ends September 14
Hiding in My Craft Room - Think Fall, use Fall Colors - Ends September 13
