Anything but a card/ 31 Days of Halloween day 28

Happy Sunday everyone!
I worked on this fun little box this week
I have been wanting to try out making a box like this for the entire month,
and honestly I just kept putting it off because I wanted to be able to feature it for
Anything but a Card's #5 challenge "use black!"
I can honestly say that I don't know what I pictured in my mind but the window was always
a part of the plan! mu ah ah ah
So this is the "Spooky" halloween candy box that I created....
Can you tell me what item was repurposed for this?? No no, I'll wait!
Both hubby and my mom guessed wrong... take your time.. and don't you scroll down to see...
he he he I'm just kidding!
I appologize in advance for this horrible picture... but it's all I have!
So, that's right, my Halloween candy box used to house my dryer sheets...
I did let it air out pretty good before I started using it!

Here's a quick shot of the box opened and holding my most favorite candy in the whole world....
Yep, reeses peanut butter cups...  MMMMMM
You can see that I added the velcro so the box would actually stay closed!
I just used my handy dandy hot glue gun to attach it to the paper

I am also entering this into:
