Haunted House for Halloween Treats

Sorry, the picture quality is not that great, but the little Haunted Houses look really cute in person, and they are large enough to hold a fun size bag of M & M's, or any other type of fun size candy bar.
To make the Haunted House, I first cut Basic Black cardstock using my Big Shot and the Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die.  I used Sticky Strip to hold the carton closed, and added an additional piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock to make a roof.  For the front door, I just trimmed some more Elegant Eggplant cardstock to get the size I wanted, and using one of the punches from the Little Labels Punch Pack I made a window for the front of my door, and wrote the word Boo! with a White uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.  My door knob was made by punching Brush Silver cardstock with a small hole punch.  I stamped some ghosts, and cut them out placing them on one side of my roof, and added my sentiment to the other side.  I added some punched bats from the retired Bat Punch. 
The following were used:
Cardstock:  Basic Black #121045, Elegant Eggplant #105126, Whisper White #100730, Brushed Silver #100712
Ink: Basic Black #126980
Stamp Sets:  Spooky Bingo Bits #123944 wood or #123956 clear, Wicked Cool #118738 wood or #120600 clear
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die #117310, Paper Snips #103579, White uni-ball Signo Gel Pen #105021
Punches:  Little Labels Punch Pack #126881, 1" Square #124094, Bat punch is retired
Adhesive:  Sticky Strip #104294, Snail #104332
