is trying to get a Halloween treat! Over on Simon Says Stamp and Blog this week's theme was to create anything but a card. This 4" square pizza box was made from off-white card stock. It stands 1" high.
I cut the center out of the brown layer, then ran it through Tim's burlap embossing folder before distressing with brown and black distress inks. A scrap of acetate (thank goodness I save packaging!) keeps the candy from exiting out the window.
The pumpkin is a Sizzix die; cut out 2 but only used the center portion on the 2nd one. More distress inks and Distress Stickles and plenty of grunge paper scraps were used for elevation and curlability. A bit of copper wire coiled on a skewer was gently pulled into shape for the pumpkin vine.
Martha Stewart provided the punch & vein stamp for the leaves. They were also distressed and curled before Distress Stickles was applied. Tim's memo pin holds his Happy Halloween ticket from his 100th set. I carefully stamped it on his ticket die and distressed the edges with brown and black.
Twine was wrapped around the box several times and tied in a knot. Like that mouse? He's sticky so he sits on the acetate window and doesn't move around. Found a set of 12 at Target today for not much $.
PS - Yes, the layers are a bit wonky. It's not easy getting everything lined up and cut. I decided it was better to make them appear even more wonky so I could get by with it! LOL
