The Gang's All Here . . .

Used the Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Box die set to make my four treat boxes for Halloween. Here they are:

Each box was stamped with a different background stamp so they are all different. Here is a better photo of their witch hats and bows:

This first box:

I stamped these pieces using a stars background stamp from MyFavoriteThings using SU Pumpkin Pie ink. This next box:

I stamped this box with the wire background stamp from MyFavoriteThings. This next box:

Stamped this using the Stampin Up Hardwood background stamp. For this next box I did not stamp a background onto it -- just the pumpkin face:

For my spider web on her hat I used a Cheery Lynn die. The SU Tree punch was used for her hat. The SU Bow Builder punch was used for all the bows and I used various prints from the stash for those. The spider web is adhered to the witch hat brim using double sided tape. But I did not like that when you took off the hat you can see the clipped spider web underneath. To fix that problem I cut the Word Window punch out of black card stock and then used a 2" circle punch to punch over that and that was my "lining" to cover up the spider web under the hat:

This just makes this look more finished and it did not take a lot more time to cut that lining out and put it under the hat brim. These will be filled the week of Halloween with treats. TFL and YOLO

What fun! I have never used my Curvy box die. Shame on me!
