Today I’m sharing a project from my Halloween class. I was a long class because I had a ton of projects. Once I started making Halloween projects it was hard to stop. This one is a Fancy Favor box. It would be perfect for the ghost treats you leave on your neighbors door step during Halloween. I don’t know if everybody does that but around here you get a secret ghost visit by your house and they leave treats on your front door. And then you become the “ghost” and leave treats at someone else’s house. If you had the ghost visit you hang a sign in your window so he doesn’t visit again. Are we the only ones that do that?
So here is my Fancy Favor box – cur from Rich Razzleberry card stock using the Big Shot and the Fancy Favor Box die. At the top I used the new Stampin’ Around Web regular wheel. Ink with a Basic Black cartridge and go all the way around the top edge.
Then I added pieces of Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series paper on all four sides. I used the stripes on the front and back and the green with black dots on the sides but you could use any of the patterns in the pack. Then I tied some of the new Raven 1/2″ Lace from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday mini catalog. So if you look closely at the lace it looks like little pumpkins and if you look even closer there are little pumpkin faces – can you see them? Two eyes, a nose and a mouth? Is it just me or can anyone else see that?
The front of the box could be decorated with any number of different stamp sets. I decided to use a variety of punches – Large Scallop circle, the 1-3/4″ Circle, 1-3/8″ Circle, and 1-1/4″ Circle. Do you recognize the stamp set? It is the Sweet Centers stamp set.
I colored just the center of the big square Halloween image and punched it out with the 1-1/4″ Circle punch. For the Spider I used a small rhinestone brad – I have a blingy spider! I was also planning to use the Wicked Cool stamp set for this – the little witch boots would be cute on here too.
The colors are Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Old Olive, Cajun Craze.
I hope you like it. If you want to fill use a Cello bag and tie it with some of the lace and set it inside the box.
