Waltzingmouse Sept. Release ~ Hocus Pocus


Have you been enjoying the Waltzingmouse Sept. release peeks? I know I've had a ton of fun working with these new images, and it's obvious the rest of the team has too by their exquisite projects.

Well, I'm excited to share with you what I made with the new Hocus Pocus set. It has the most fun silhouette images (two of which I used on yesterday's project), and some fabulously spooky fonted sentiments!! And then there's the creepy gated fence....LOVE it!!

Now, I was thinking...Halloween doesn't have to be just about the kids does it? I mean, have you outgrown your craving for sugary treats? I thought not. So, I thought it would be fun to create a little treat gift box filled with a chocolate goody an adult would love. Have you ever had Ferrero Rocher and Rondnoir Chocolates? YUM!! Anyway, that's what I filled this sweet little box with.

Oh, I should tell you how I made the box. Easy as pie!! I used the Spellbinders Square Petal Top Box die. When you emboss it, all the score lines are made for you. I just used a bone folder to make nice crisp folds, and glued it together. I then stamped the fence onto some Fine Linen PTI cardstock, and cut it into panels that fit along the box edges. I used the wonderful circular bat/moon image for my medallion topper and added some Webster's Pages Netting behind the button and Black Burlap string. I think it looks a bit like a web. Don't you?


Lastly, I filled it with the Candy. Four pieces fit perfectly inside. Oh, I almost forgot, I embossed the "Halloween Wishes" sentiment, with detail black ep, onto one of the side panels too.


That's it for my project. I hope you've visited all the other blogs today too. You won't want to miss a one, that's for sure.
Thanks so much for all your kind and encouraging comments. It's so generous of you to share your kind thoughts. They are much appreciated.

Happy Stamping!
