Frankenstein Mini Milk Carton

Hi there! As promised, I am showing you my Frankenstein Mini Milk Carton. Here he is! The concept is pretty much the same, as in the cards I have created years back. (See cards here.) The cards are a bit bigger than the milk carton so I scaled down the size of the eyes and used SU's 1/2" circle punch.

You will need:
2 punched circles of Whisper White cardstock
1 punched circle of Basic Black, cut in half
2 punched circles of Old Olive, cut in half, you need only 3 half-circles.
Layer as shown on picture. I used dimensional tape for the eyelids and nose, to give them a 3-D effect.

The mouth is punched out using the scallop circle punch. My ever-helfpul 9-year old daughter reminded me to put a scar above one eye, so I used my Basic Black marker for that. Meet Frankie....

Stamp: (none)
Ink: (none)
Paper: Cardstock in Old Olive, Basic Black, and Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, mini milk carton die, scallop circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, tape, basic black marker, ribbon and mini clip (nonSU).

Thanks so much for looking!

Pumpkin Mini Milk Cartons

Hi there! Like everyone else, I have my own favorite die from Stampin' Up. It is the mini milk carton die. So using that particular die, I created a Halloween pumpkin! My 9-year old daughter thought the one on the left is Smiley Pumpkin and the one on the right is Grumpy Pumpkin... lol.

The eyes were cut from a punched-out 5-petal flower in Basic Black. The mouth is from the scallop circle punch. Aren't they adorable? On my next post, I will show you my Frankenstein Mini Milk Carton. So stay tuned!

Stamp: All Holidays
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Cardstock in Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, So Saffron, Old Olive
Accessories: Big Shot (I love mine!), mini milk carton die, scallop circle punch, 5-petal punch, white gel pen, ribbon, and mini clips (non SU).

Thanks for dropping by!

Spider Web Box

Hi there! I went to a Bath and Body Works store yesterday and found these cute anti-bacterial hand gels in Spider Web. I thought, wow! they would look great in combo with SU's spider web embossing folder... I took out my Big Shot and Box #2 die and decorated the box a bit... The spider was created using the new Bat punch and I learned it from here. Is that the great or what!

To create the "whitish" web, I swiped the embossed pieces of my box on SU's whisper white craft ink. My spider punch art also got a little bit of white craft ink around it.

A close-up of the spider and its web:

The finished box holds a bottle of 1 fl. oz. Spider Web anti-bacterial hand gel from Bath and Body Works. I wrapped it in white tissue and it's good to go. I bet whoever receives this will like it! Don't you think so?

Let me know if you have questions. Thanks for dropping by!
