Goody Goblins & Monster Cookies

Not sure, but I think it's been 2 years since this I created this Halloween "Spooked" Treat box for PaperCrafts Magazine. I've had it high on a shelf with the best intention of using it ever since. So, it took a few years, but finally It's been put to good use!

Steve made his amazing Monster Cookies (really, I call them that because they are SO big! but really you can google these as Texas Governor Mansion Cookies) Savanah and I (resident goody goblins) did a little doorbell ditching and tada! The "You've been spooked" box is now making the rounds of my neighborhood.
