Dino-mite Box O' Candy

I finally had a chance to get a good daylight photo of the little center piece boxes for Colin's party tomorrow.

How cute are they?  Each side of the box is different, so I thought I'd stack the four boxes to show you what each side looked like.  The sky and grass were painted with acrylic paint, everything else is paper.
I got the Boxes at Michaels, they're 4.25 x 4.25" square and actually come with a lid, but we weren't going to need those, so I've got them saved for another time or project.  The boxes were a glossy white before I got some paint & paper attached to them.
Materials -
Cricut - Paper Dolls Dress Up (all cuts except the Cloud, those were hand cut
Paper - all paper from my scrappy stash
Miscellaneous - Googley Eyes (Every Dino deserves googley eyes! :), Stickles, Acrylic Blue & Green Paint, Chestnut Roan Ink, Boxes from Michaels, Pop dots, Gel Pens for detail & liquid applique for the orange guy's horns. 
I have the parts & pieces done for the cake too, but I'll take a photo of it all tomorrow once it's attached to the cake, instead of piece by piece.
So today we're headed outside (it's going to be 60* today & tomorrow with sunshine), to take down our halloween decorations.  We might try & get the christmas lights on the gutters hung so we're not out trying to do it in the snow and ice.  Guess we'll see.  College football starts at 12:30 today.  Go Blue!  Go Green! (See, we're an equal rooting household when Michigan & Michigan State aren't playing one another!) ;o)
Happy Craftin'!
