and the ChaLLenge was to use FaLL coLors at
Originally, I was thinking I wanted to turn a box into a FraNkeNsTeiN...I could totally see it in my head...but I didn't have a box that I thought would work.
What I did have was...
It's a fun shape...It opens nicely...it's a good size...PeRFecT!! :)
Here's my finished box...I used one sheet of paper I've had sitting around for a long time to cover it...on the sides, I cut the strip in half BEFORE I put it on the box, so that I didn't make an unfortunate mess trying to use an exacto knife to make my little box open...let's not talk about how I figured that one out or why I used all caps on the word BeFore... :)
I used a Stamps for Life set and paper pieced and embossed the pumpkin shape...polka dot and argyle...LoVe how that turned out!!
I used my new EK SuCcEsS garland punch for the swirls and leaf...
Ribbon, twine, button, tag...done. The whole thing only took about an hour...which is really fast for me :)
I am still LoViNg bLuE added to traditionaL faLL colors...not sure what's up with that...but it seems perfect to me....
Here's the inside...I can't decide if it should hold candy or a gift card...but it's going in to Connor's teacher...she's crafty...so I know she'll like it :)
Thanks for looking
Have a SpEcTaCuLar Thursday!
