Peachy Keen Friday Challenge - Halloween Treat box

Hey everyone!  I just bought a bunch of Peachy Keen face stamps and I am having a blast!   They are sooooo cute!  So, I thought I would join in the face challenge at Peachy Keen today. I used the Monster Mash face assortment, My Pink Stamper Stamps (Spooky Puns), and the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge.  The monster is cut at 3.5 inches.

Here is a close up:

Here is a video showing how I did the face on the monster!

Supplies I used:

Here is a photo tutorial showing how I made this box/basket:

Cut a 6x6 piece of cardstock and score at 2 inches and at 4 inches.  Turn and score at 2 and 4 inches again.

Cut as shown in picture below:

fold on score lines:

Fold center up and bring both sides up to meet in a point:

Cut a 1/2 " by 10" strip of cardstock for handle.  Staple or attach with a brad:

For the hot pink ruffled edge, cute crepe paper (the kind you use to decorate for a party) in half lengthwise with decorative edge scissors.  Then I ran a strip of glue with my glue runner all along the inside top edge and then gathered the crepe paper as I went, fastening it to the glue strip.

Need some Glossy accents?

 $6.50 each (includes shipping*)

Have a great weekend!!
