Halloween Candy/Cupcake Box

I recently purchased the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut Cartridge and love the simple cuts.  The hard part is decorating it but it's mostly just time consuming if you want to go that way.
For my first project using this cartridge, I chose to make a Halloween box that can be used as a candy box or a 2 cupcake box. Wouldn't this be cute for any teacher, adult or child for Halloween...
Here's the finished project.

Materials Used:
-Cricut: Sweet Tooth Boxes Cartridge (p. 40) cut at 10 1/4" and p. 64 cut at 6" for 2 cupcake insert
-Cricut: Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge (p. 49) Fence @ 4", Ghosts @ 3 & 4", Pumpkins @ 3" & 2",  page 52 tombstones cut at 4" and 5" for tag
-Patterned paper by Recollections Night & Fall
-All Hallow's Eve Stamp set by Inkadinkadoo (Sentiment and Cobwebs)
-Acetate for windows
-Green stickles
-Orange & Black ribbon from my stash
-Large ornamental brad for sentiment tag
-All edges inked with Colorbox Dark brown ink and lightly inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Challenges Entered:
Bitten by the Bug:  Windows into my world
