Halloween Week Giveaway!

I know, you're all here for the BLOG CANDY, but before we get to that, I have a few more projects to share with you.

This is not a new project.  I offered a very similar Frankie Box at my class two years ago but I had a special request to offer it again this year.  This year, I've added a new touch: see those bolts coming out of his head, I made those with the new Stocking Builder punch to make those. 
Colors: Lucky Limeade, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White and Basic Black. Big   Stamps: Smarty Pants.  Big Shot: Top Note Die. Punches: 1-1/4", 1" and 3/4" Circles, Round Tab, Stocking Builder.  Accessories: Marker, cellophane bag, Old Olive 1/8 taffeta ribbon 
During the Holiday Mini Blog Hop, Heidi over at RunningwScissorsStamper featured a Milk Carton turned into Haunted House and I knew I wanted to make simple one that could be easily duplicated at a class.  You can't tell from this picture, but on the bottom has a tab on it so you can fill it with candy and still access it without destroying the box.

Colors: Elegant Eggplant and Basic Black.  Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits.  Big Shot: Milk Carton Die and Square Lattice Embossing folder. Punches: Scallop Edge.

And I love pumpkins.  So a Halloween Week would not be complete without a pumpkin box.  I'll have a tutorial on these next week.  At my class you will have your choice of turning it into a jack-o-lantern or just keep it a simple pumpkin with a ribbon around it.

Colors: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Old Olive.  Big Shot: Milk Carton Die.  Punches: 3/4" circle, 1" square.  Accessories: Old Olive Scallop Dotted Ribbon, Pumpkin Pie Prints Designer Series Paper

What fun projects! The house is adorable; love the texture on the roof and of course the fact that you don't have to ruin it to get into it! Good job!
