12 Weeks of Halloween 2016 Week 1

 12 Weeks of Halloween 2016 Week 1


This Halloween Bakers Box is the 1st project for the 12 Weeks of Halloween.

I made this box using the 12 x 12 Basic Gray card stock that is featured in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. And .... I used the Bakers Box Thinlit to make it.

Next ...  I decorated it with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies ... you can find them on page 52  ... along with the Spooky Fun Stamp Set.  There's a bundle available that includes both the stamp set and the edgelits.

To tie the box closed I used the brand new Halloween Night Bakers Twine.

Did you notice the cute Halloween Night Enamel Dots?  The package includes, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Perfect Plum (I love them).

The picture below is another one I made and the only difference is I sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink ... I liked the sponged one best!
