Happy Friday to you! Before I share my project, I want to say that today is the day my daughter Amanda officially becomes a teenager so I want to be the first to wish her a VERY Happy 13th Birthday!!! I love you, honey!! This is a photo we took at the Melting Pot last weekend when we celebrated a little early. Chocolate fondue - YUM!
Today is also Fabulous Friday over on the Sisters in Stamping blog and our projects this week are featuring Halloween stamp sets. With Halloween right around the corner, it's a great time to start on your projects!
I decided to use the Wicked Cool stamp set for my project - it is my favorite new Halloween stamp set in the Idea Book & Catalog this year. While blog surfing recently, I came across a wonderful Halloween treat container created by Kay Sha of Creations on Paper. I fell in love with her kitty cat - it reminded me of a retired stamp set that we had called Cool Cat. I CASE'd the cat but changed the treat container to a 2-5-7-10 box. I needed a little treat to give to my Scrapbook Club members last night as a token of my appreciation for their support of my stamping business and this is what I came up with - I filled it with chocolates and gave them each one.
To create the container, I took a piece of 6-1/2 x 11 rich razzleberry card stock and scored it at 2", 5", 7" and 10" on the long side (hence the name of the container). I then rotated it 90 degrees and scored it at 2". I snipped the bottom flaps and adhered the sides together. I then ran the box through the Big Shot with my Spiderweb impressions folder for some fun texture.
The kitty cat was created using a bunch of punches and I put them all together on a 2-3/8" scallop circle cut from the Wicked Fun specialty DSP.
The two stamps I used from the Wicked Cool stamp set are the spider web and the "spooky" sentiment. I sponged after punching and then added it to the box with stampin' dimensionals.
The last thing I did was to fill the containers with various candy and chocolates and then used my crop-a-dile to put two holes in the top to thread the old olive striped ribbon through to hold it closed. I really like the way these turned out!
Thanks for looking and I hope you head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog after Noon EST today to check out the other fabulous Halloween projects!
Have a fabulous weekend!
