Spooky Night Sweet Home Home Sweet Home Graveyard Gate Detailed Gate Stitched Shapes Hexagon Tags - Mini Pizza Box

Just another gorgeous day outside today.  I can't believe that the weather is staying so nice for this late in the year.

My share for today is one of Stampin' Up's Mini Pizza Boxes that I embellished.  It's perfect to hold the Hexagon Cards that I designed and turned into Tags and inserted into the Mini Pizza Box.  The Hexagon Tags fit perfectly into the Box.

Let's take a look:


I trimmed out the colored Polka Dot pattern from SU's Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the sides and top of my Mini Pizza Box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

For the sides:
4 - at a shy 3/4" x a shy 3-1/4"
For the top:
1 - at shy 3-1/4" x a shy 3-1/4"

 
You can also embellish the inside of the Box; but, I ran out of time.  (Again!)


Using SU's Detailed Gate Thinlits Dies, I die cut the Gate, Lock and Key from Smoky Slate Cardstock.

I trimmed out a piece of the Gate as shown in the picture above, cut it down the middle into 2 pieces and adhered the outside edges of the Gate to my Box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I cut the top of the Lock and wrapped it around the two Gates to hold them closed.

 
Using SU's Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, I die cut the 1-5/16" x 2-1/4" Oval from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.

Using Graveyard Gate Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment onto the Oval with Basic Black Archival Ink and adhered it to the right side of the Gate only with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I stamped the Crow in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a scrap piece of leftover Spooky Night paper (inbetween the images on the Very Vanilla part), fussy cut out the Crow and adhered the Crow to the top of the Gate on the right side only with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.


I manually did a light score line on the edges of the Gate and pressed then open with my fingers.

Using Sweet Home Stamp Set, I stamped 3 Ghosts in Basic Black Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Using Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies, I die cut out the 3 Ghosts and then 3 Bats from Basic Black Cardstock.


I adhered one Bat to the Oval on the front and two Bats to the Oval on the inside and then the 3 Ghosts to the center of the box inbetween the Gate all with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

 
I cut a length of Linen Thread and tied one end around the Key and the other end around the Gate and into a Bow as shown in the picture above.

I adhered 4 Enamel Glitter Dots to the Gate and 2 on the Oval as shown in the picture above.

 
And, the Mini Pizza Box holds my Hexagon Tags perfectly.  You couldn't ask for a better fit!  

*Note - we have a lot going on besides re-modeling the BIG room upstairs that goes out on to our balcony....

SO, I set my 3 Hexagon Tags down last night to go help my Husband and do you think that I can find where I set them down at!!!  Nope!  

SO, I put the my Hexagon Cards in the Box to show you.  The Hexagon Tags are identical to the Hexagon Cards except I punched an 1/8" hole in the upper left hand corner of each Card and tied on some Linen Thread for a Tag.

I hope I find them tonight as I will need them again for tomorrow's project.

 
Again, you can always embellish the inside of your Mini Pizza Box too!  Or, better yet, add some CHOCOLATE!  Which I could really use right now!!!   😊😊😊

I still have some Stampin' Up Promotions to share with you today too!

Hexagon Card Envelope, Spooky Night, Labels to Love, Layering Ovals, Everyday Label - V

A gorgeous day in Michigan today.  The sun is full on, a little windy and a high of 67.  It just looks so pretty outside with all the color on the trees.

Stampin’ Blends Customer Release
Stampin' Up is excited to announce that Stampin’ Blends will be available for Customers to purchase on November 1!  SU is also having a Stampin’ Blends Giveaway! Beginning today and running through October 31, 2017, you can share, like, or comment on Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends Facebook post for the chance to win a Stampin’ Blends Marker Collection or a Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack.

My share for today is another size Envelope and a Card Box that I designed for my Hexagon Cards that I shared with you on my blog last week.  Let's take a look at my 3 Hexagon Cards and the Envelopes that I made on the Envelope Punch Board:


Pictured above is the torn and sponged paper Mummy 2-7/8" x 3-3/8" Hexagon Card that I designed using SU's Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

I found a dimension for an Envelope on the Envelope Punch Board that will fit my Hexagon Cards besides the Hexagon Envelope that I designed and shared on yesterdays blog post.

On the Envelope Punch Board, I used the 3" x 3-1/2" Card Size, 5-3/4" x 5-3/4" Paper Size and the 2-5/8" Score Line.

I used SU's Spooky Night Designer Series Paper for the Envelopes. 


Pictured above is the Seasonal Chums Pumpkin 2-7/8" x 3-3/8" Hexagon Card.

 
Pictured above is the Sweet Home Door 2-7/8" x 3-3/8" Hexagon Card.


Pictured above is the  2-7/8" x 3-3/8" Hexagon Card with the Door open and showing the Ghost.


Pictured above is the Box that I made and embellished for the Hexagon Cards and Envelopes.


For the top of the box, I trimmed out a piece of SU's Very Vanilla Cardstock to measure 5-1/8" x 5-7/8" and scored it at 3/4" on all 4 sides.

I trimmed the corner flaps up to the 3/4" score line as shown in the picture above.

I used SU's Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the flaps to the inside of the box top.

  
For the bottom of the box, I trimmed out a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock to measure 
5" x 5-3/4" and scored it at 3/4" on all 4 sides.

I trimmed the corner flaps up to the 3/4" score line as shown in the picture above.

I used SU's Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the flaps to the inside of the box top.


I trimmed out the Striped pattern from SU's Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to measure 3" x 3-3/4" and adhered it to the top of my box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


For the Belly Band:
I trimmed out a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to measure 1/2" x 11", wrapped it around the box and adhered it together in the front with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, I die cut out the 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" Scalloped Oval from Old Olive Cardstock.  I die cut out the next size smaller Oval from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.  I adhered the two Ovals together as shown in the picture above with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

  
Using SU's Lables to Love Stamp Set, I stamped the Halloween Stamp onto Very Vanilla Cardstock in Basic Black Archival Ink then again with Pumpkin Pie Ink.  Using SU's Everyday Label Punch, I punched out both Labels.

Using my SU Trimmer, I trimmed out the words on the Pumpkin Pie Label and adhered them to the Basic Black Label with Mono Multi Purpose Glue. 

  
I laid a length of SU's Black Mini Sequin Trim on top of my Ovals as shown in the picture above and adhered it with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  

I then adhered my Label to the Ovals and then to my Belly Band with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I adhered 2 Enamel Glitter Circle Shapes to each side of the Label and 3 Black Sequins from SU's Metallic Sequin Assortment to the Pumpkin Pie Oval with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.

I still have some Stampin' Up Promotions to share with you today too!
