How to make this tote:
- Cut (2) Sizzix Big Shot #2 Box
- Stamp using Only Orange and Black ink the circle swirls from the Tasty Sweet Stamp set: be sure to also stamp the inside flap of the box. No need to stamp the back side of the box as it will not show.
- Assemble Boxes, adhere sticky tape to the back
- Using the Large Oval punch, center on the flap and punch for the handle.
- Wrap 1/4" Black Grosgrain ribbon around front and back of tote.
- Attach messages with dimensionals.
Prepare the 2 messages: "Eat, Drink & Be Scary" and "Trick or Treat". Mount as shown in photo using dimensionals. The Trick or Treat message was made by using Stampin Write pens to achieve the colors.
Here's how to make the skeleton:
- Prepare (2) 1/4" x 4-1/2" strips, cut in half. You should have 4 pieces of 2-1/4 strips
- Use Designer Label Punch to make head. Slip one side of the Designer Label punch into a 1-1/4" Circle Punch as shown on the right photo.
- Use Heart to Heart Punch to punch out the smallest heart for the ends of the "cross". Clip the tip of the heart. Adhere to bones using 2 Way Glue Pen. (oops.....photo doesn't show this)
- Using 1/4" Circle Punch (or Crop-o-dile), punch (2) Black circles for eyes, 1 for nose (cut this in half). Adhere to head using 2 Way Glue Pen.
- Use a Black Stampin' Write Pen to draw mouth
- Attach each skull with dimensionals to (1) Scallop Circle (which means you need to punch 2 Scallop Circles): punch out in Black CS
To finish this project: made to order shreds in Only Orange and Black! Cut 1/8" wide lengthwise, using scraps. Crumple up into a ball - right photo shows finished shreds!
