So let's get started with my post for this blog hop! I choose to work with the Pumpkin Treat Box. Now I love these treat boxes but choose to turn mine into a decoration by using an LED Tea Light.

1) Start with the uploading the Pumpkin Treat Box SVG into Cricut Design Space. These files are already sized for you but you can make them as big or small as you like.
2) I cut the design out on Kraft Stock and used Black Licorice Stamp Ink to randomly stamp all over the Kraft Stock.
3) Now I wanted the pumpkins on the box to really stand out. I used some Washi Tape to block off the box around the pumpkins. Using Orange Inka Gold, I spread an ample amount onto one side of the pumpkins. Continue to rub the Orange Inka Gold to activate the bee wax and you are left with a nice gold shimmer wax finish to the pumpkins.
4) Do this to all sides using GreenPurple and Black Inka Gold finished. 
5) With the Pumpkin Treat Box SVG you will get 4 panels for the inside of the box. I cut these out using Cricut Vellum,
6) Take the cut outs and run them through your Cut'N'Boss with the basket pattern from the Oriental Weave Cuttlebug Set.
7) Use Tim Holtz Mini Inks in coordinating colors to the Inka Gold and highlight the embossed raised part of the vellum. I used my Heat Gun to dry the ink.
8) Use your favorite Adhesive to adhere the panels on the inside of the box and then construct and glue side of box.
9) Insert candy or LED Tea Light inside the treat box.
10) Finish the box by wrapping Orange Twine and embellishments around the top of the box to close it.
