I wanted to drop by today with a couple of little Halloween projects.
I have used two sets of dies from the new Amazing Paper Grace Halloween Collection designed by Becca Feeken.
The dies in this new collection feature the Spooky Cottage Etched Die Set, which have proved to be great fun to create with.
I love all the cute, fun elements and how I can combine and use them in conjunction with each other dies from the new Halloween Collection.
My card is 5x7inches and predominantly features the Spooky Cottage Etched Dies, although I did use my versatile Elegant Twist Squares Etched Dies to highlight the spooky but fun focal point. Those mummies look super cute emerging in the moonlight beneath the knarly old tree. Have you spotted the spider's web? That and the sentiment is from the Spooky Boo dies.
After making my card, I turned my attention to creating a simple spooky treat box and dressed up some of my treats with some Halloween paper from my stash. I added the word "Boo" to one and popped another mummy on the other. These are examples of fun ways to wrap up treats for would be treat or treaters, who unfortunately this year will probably miss out on that tradition of going door to door collecting treats. So why not think about hiding a few around the house for them to find instead as the witching hour approaches?
I do love the gothic windows and doors in this set, and my mummy appears to be playing hide and seek behind that tree!
This is back view - I love the beautiful decorative fence.
I do hope you like these fun projects. I found them to be a great distraction from all the Christmas crafting I have been working on.
This photo gives you the template for creating my treat box.
The card stock measures 11 x 6-3/4" inches.
Short side score @ 1-1/4", 4-1/2" & 6-1/4" inches.
Long side score @ 1-1/4", 5-1/4", 6-1/2" and 10-1/2" inches - fold card at the first horizontal score land and notch @ 5/8 & 5-7/8. Add diagonal score lines where indicated with broken lines.
Cut away the areas highlighted in pink and assemble. Punch two holes at the top and secure with ribbon to close.
That's it from me for today. Thanks for stopping by and please pop back sometime, as I will be sharing more projects using this fabulous new collection.
Bye for now and ..................."happy crafting everybody!".
