SSINKspiration Halloween Fun: Witches Night

Good morning!  It's the last day of September an we're going to be celebrating all the holidays before we know it.  Halloween is first up and I really believe in getting a head start on holiday projects to help alleviate stress so today's post over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog is perfect, it's all about Halloween.  Aidan is still of the age and desire to give holiday gifts to his classmates and teachers.  For Halloween we're doing soaps and candles and he picked which teacher gets which gift (we have 14 teachers on our list for the year).  I wanted to make a fun box for the holiday hand soap so  needed something big and was so happy when I came across a fellow demonstrator Sam from the UK who provided this great tutorial HERE for making a large box with a full size sheet of 12x12 DSP (not only will this box hold a lot but also uses a full sheet of paper so there's no scraps and it helps use up my stash, perfect).

I started with a piece of Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and used the Simply Scored board to score the box and then assembled it using some Tear and Tape.  To close the top of the box I used the 1/8" Handheld Punch and tied it shut with a piece of Tangelo Twist 5/8" Stitched Cotton Ribbon.

For the box label I started by stamping the large image from the Witches Night stamp set on Very Vanilla cardstock using Basic Black ink and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Lots of Labels Framelits.  I took a piece of Black Glimmer Paper and cut out a just the tops of the same label as a accent.  The striped DSP piece is actually an extra from the Witches Hat Décor Kit (which unfortunately is old out but you a easily use another pattern from the DSP package and cut it out using the same framelit set.

These boxes came together so quickly (I made 7 of them) and are lots of fun.
