I can't believe October is here already! The weather should be cooling off soon and the leaves should start turning colors. It's all a signs that Halloween is right around the corner. Last week I received some amazing dies from Sizzix! This little Sizzlit was among the box. Super cute don't you think? And so many possibilities! I couldn't wait to start die cutting with it!
I decided to make a little piece to display in my home for the holidays.
Outline the words "Trick or Treat" and the little pumpkin with a Black Soot Distress Marker. Ink the edges with Distress Ink on an Ink Blending tool if desired.
To cover the outside of the boxes with paper, cut two pieces each 1 1/2" x 6 3/4", two pieces 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" and one piece 2 3/4" x 6 3/4". Now tissue tape all the edges.
Add a little Pitch Black Dabber paint by dry brushing the paint to the edges.
Using an Ink Blending Tool and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink add some color to the outside of the box including the Tissue tape.
To make the little feet for the boxes to sit on paint the small rectangular Facets with Black Dabber paint and let the dry. Adhere them to the bottom of the boxes.
Now we are ready to decorate the box. Use a glue gun to adhere the die cut elements in place. The fence has a little break in it to make it look like a gate. Cut a 1" circle for the moon and pop dot in the sky.
Add some spider webs and a little moss to create some texture. To add a light feature, I used two little battery operated tea lights to create a glow behind the children.
I can't wait to use this Halloween Shadows Sizzlit die to make some more Halloween FUN! I know it will be a favorite of mine.
Hope you all have a creative weekend!
