My first project is so easy to make - the Coffin Treat Boxes come pre-cut - you just have to glue!!
Then to make it even easier - there are dies sized to fit the coffin (or the dies would be great on the front of cards). I used the basic set of Label Stacklets 11. There are also dies in a coffin shape with a scene cut into them - there's a creepy cat, a haunted house (both in From the Crypt - Haunted) and there's a big spider from From the Crypt - Creepy (Be sure to check out the TE blog for details on how to get this particular die and also to check out the rest of the design team.)
For my card, using the basic shape, I folded a piece of Plum Punch cardstock then cut the shape with one side of the die slightly off the folded edge. That leaves the folded edge uncut and it will open like a little card!! I put a cute little Dracula and sentiment from Mum's the Word Stamp & Die Combo in the open part.
Finally - you can see that the top of the Coffin Treat Boxes comes off so you can fill it up with something fun. (Isn't it amazing that I found pumpkin candy in July when I was taking these pictures??!! I learned my lesson last year and made sure I kept a small stash of Halloween candy for the whole year to use in pictures this year!)
Here's the supply list for this card and be sure to keep reading for a chance at prizes and for another sneak peek!
Then I used another new product to make a trio of gift giving tags. The Be Somebody Stamp & Die Combo has the funniest little ghosts and some really great sentiments to go with them.
Aren't the sentiments fun??! They are a bit easier to see in this photo.
Besides the ghosts, there are a number of other new products on these tags. The mirror is Little Bits - Ornate Frame. Then there's Little Bits - Candlelabra and I used the big bird and pumpkin from Sitting Pretty - Halloween Accessories. The tags are the previously released Tag Stacklets 3 and of course, there's a sprinkling of coordinating enamel shapes!
Tomorrow I'll have one more Halloween card (using the slider days from the last release!) and a pumpkin card using the new layered pumpkin and jack-o-lantern set. Be sure to head over to the TE Blog for links to the rest of the creative team and to enter the question of the day contest.
