12 Weeks of Halloween 2015 Week 5


The Spooky Berry Basket is the 5th project for the 12 Weeks of Halloween.

To make this box I used a 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 sheet of Basic Black card stock ... with the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper  ... they measure 2-1/4 x 1-3/4 and you need four of them.

The image is from the Among the Branches Stamp Set and I stamped it with the brand new Basic Black Ink featured in the Holiday Catalog.

I used the Very Vanilla Thick Bakers Twine to tie the sides together.

    I never got to tell you how much I enjoyed your Halloween Berry Box/Basket!!! You kept me company yesterday while waiting for my hubby to have a Cardio Procedure in the hospital and I was scared and all alone 🙁 But you did a wonderful job of keeping my mind busy while the clock went by so very slow!!!!! Thank you Angie 🙂

  78. Lynn

    Very cute & so easy. Have you tried threading a darning needle and than putting the thread thru the basket corners? If you were making a bunch of them it may be faster. Just a thought.

  79. linda font

    I used a dental floss threader to put the twine through.
