Cut It Up
Challenge #55

My Project:

So who doesn't LOVE witches at Halloween?!?!
I had my nephew CONVINCED I was a witch
in real life for a LONG time when he was younger...
he's almost 16 now and I can't pull that one over on him anymore :)

But I found this AWESOME box on the Wrap It Up cartridge
I just HAD to try out!
Seriously, this cartridge has some AMAZING
Halloween images, treat boxes, and tags!
The tag is also from this cart!

So I cut the box at 7 1/2" out of some black cardstock,
then I cut it again out of some fun pattern paper
from The Paper Studio and
adhered the two together.
This made the box extra sturdy!

The witch layer was cut out of some fun green and white polka dot
paper that was in my stash that I thought was very fitting for her!
I then cut a little piece of green cardstock for her face
and glued it on the back of the layer.

I used some Washi Tape for the bottom and added
a couple of Orange Rhinestones from Darice.
 The stamp on the tag is from Joy's Life's
Halloween Pun Stamps.
I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for the stamp and
I inked all the edges up with Slate ink from CTMH.

The black and white twine is from We R Memory Keepers
and I just had some purple tulle in my stash
for the topper.

I really like how this turned out and
am planning on giving this to my son's Kindergarten
teacher for Halloween.
NOT because I think she's a witch :)
She's AMAZING!!!

I hope that you will join us over at Cut It Up
for our Anything But a Card
Halloween Challenge!!!
