Oh Frank Halloween Box

I was inspired to create my own version of a frankenstein box after viewing the frank and little woman posted on Split Coast Stampers by Mackensie. I made my box from a simple template (See measurements below). I cut the hair using my Cricut Platnum School grass (9 1/2" 1 1/2"). I Cut misc circles for the eyes using my cricut. I used the tab punch (cut in half) from Stampin up for the nose. I highlighted with green ink, hand drew the scars and mouth. I filled a cellophane bag with candy and tied a hand stamped Happy Halloween with a black ribbon. I made a bunch of these for my husbands co-workers.

Box Info: Cut Card-stock at 6" X 9 1/2". Score 1 1/2" from the bottom. Score from the side at 1 1/2", 4", 5 1/2", and 8". Cut off one square from the bottom left. Fold on all score lines and glue to create box.

Boo Banner

Using the scraps from my last banner, I made a mini Boo banner for my desk at work. I cut the shapes, letters, and ghost using my cricut. I used glitter glue over the ghosts to give them some shine.

Trick or Treat Bag Tags

I found some really cute trick or treat bags at the Disney store. I bought several for my friends kids. I made personalized tags using my cricut, and laminated them for durability.

They were super fast and easy to make!

Trick Or Treat Banner

I made this banner for my fireplace. I used Cricut Storybook for the shapes and letters. I used the stampin up label punch at the top to hang on a piece of ribbon. I cut the spider and bat from everyday paperdolls and attached to clothespin that clip to the banner. To give dimension I used pop dots between the layers. Now I'm ready for Halloween....
