Sint Maarten/ St. Martin's Day

I am ready for Sint Maarten!
Well what is that, you may ask:
It is a typicalDutch childrens holiday
and not even everywhere in the Netherlands.

This is what wikipedia says:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Martin%27s_Day

It is a little bit like Halloween,
only kds don't dress up.
They come by your house and they sing 
a song and after this you give them a treat.

On Saturday my dd and I started
to make the treat boxes together.
Punching and

cutting was the beginning.
 and a lot of folding and glueing.
I got the idea for these boxes here:
I just changes the size of the box to a 
little bigger one to fit the candy.
The pictures that are on the boxes
are color pages i found of figures with
lanterns. I resized them to make them fit here.

Now I have everything ready for the kids to come 
this evening when it starts getting dark.
Wonder if I will hav enough...you never know!

This card is made with a digital image by
Create with TLC and the cloisonné circle stamp

It was a wonderful evening.
Lots of children came by and 
not one of my treat boxes are left!

Have a creative day!
