I had a blast making this little combo. This is a little Halloween favour box made with the Bags,Tags & Boxes cart. and some fabbo paper by My Mind's Eye The outside is decorated very simply with DP and a tile cut from the Makin' the grade cart. It comes into it's own when opened...BOO!!!!!! I added ric rac around the box and a super spidey and his web over the acetate window. Boo! was cut from Makin' the grade with an orange shadow, then I stuck them onto black card so that they were touching and cut around the whole thing by hand- sorry, I can't be doing with the Design Studio! It's too much of a faff! Then I stuck it onto the inside of the lid. The card was made with much the same elements, web, spidey etc with the exception of the sentiment which says ' A hauntin' we will GO!' I used a smaller strip of DP with some paper from Pink Petticoat (black dots printed onto orange paper) which was mounted onto black paper. I know that we don't do Halloween like our American cousins but there are so many damn cute images on the Paper Doll cart that I couldn't resist!!!! Hope you like them!!!
Recipe as follows:
Card- 7x5 tent fold
Paper- My Mind's Eye & Pink Petticoat
Orange card- local craft shop (JDI)
Acetate- as above
Ribbon- from my stash (you can't see it in the photo but there are bats & witches on it!)
Ric Rac- local Haberdashery
Lettering & tiles- Makin' The Grade
Spider & Web- Paper Doll Dress Up (with RDS button ON)
Brads (in tiles)- Papermania
Black gems( bottom right of card)- Papermania
These little boxes can be made for any occasions e.g Weddings,Birthday Party Bags and can be made really different just by changing the colour of the card and the trimmings. My idea of heaven would be to have pile of these filled with Haribo foamy jelly sweeties!!!
BTW I cut the box on my expression at 6 1/2" This gives you a relly good sized box.
