Halloween Pillow Box

Good morning world, how are we all?

Today I am quite excited, yet nervous at the same time.

This is because this will be my very first blogpost as a design team member

for The Cutting Cafe, owned by Regina Easter.

Every month on the 7th and 21st, the design team showcase her products, with the intention

of inspiring other crafters with her wares.

Now todays project was using halloween pillow boxes found here-:

http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/2011/09/halloween-pillow-boxestemplates-cutting-files.html

and here is my creation-:

I made the pillow box by first cutting it on the scan n cut.  I did not change the dimensions at this point.

Where the ghost had been cut from the centre I used acetate to create a window, and kept the

waste to one side.  After cutting and applying the frame to the ghost,

I just had to get those googly eyes on there, I think it looks so cute.  I then added black and green ribbon,

to co-ordinate with the cardstock.

Now onto the other bits & bobs.  Remember that waste piece shaped like a ghost?  Well I

scanned it into my Scan n Cut, so I could re-size it slightly,

before cutting multiples in paper.

So from my waste piece I was able to create a cute little notebook, which coincidentely fits perfectly

inside the pillow box along with the mini broomstick pen you can see in the picture above.

Within this file you will also find outlines to frame the window area of the pillow box,

I cut these in a few different colours, to enable me to

create some cute bunting to add decoration in my picture, however you could easily re-create this and use

as a decoration in your home this Halloween.

I do hope you like my first creation as a design team member, and look forward to

bringing you my twist on the projects set by Regina.

Ta ta for now & happy crafting xx
