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:
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.
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!

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