Spooky 2,5,7,10 box...

2 posts in one day...that is a rare thing...ha ha ha! For the technique challenge today we are making little boxes or gift bags. This is a 2, 5, 7, 10 box designed by Jen Balcer. If you would like to play along and find a great tutorial on how to make this little box, go here. I have made a very similiar box before called a 2, 4, 6, 8 box that is also very easy to make but, quite a bit smaller. I pulled out some new stamps to play with this box. The trick or treaters and sentiment is Amuse of course and the black cat is inkadinkadoo. (always bad when you stop in at the local scrap store..."just for a peek" know you are coming out with goodies...wink!

Stamps: Amuse, inkadinkadoo. CS: pumpkin pie, basic black, old olive, last years Halloween night designer paper. Ink: Basic black. Access: mega circle punch, giga scallop circle punch, hole punch, gingham ribbon.

The box design is very simple...I would have loved to really decorate it up more but, just wasn't sure how. I am now wishing I had used a bg stamp to take up some of the naked orange space. Maybe a little hanging tag with the sentiment would have been a nice touch...hanging from a safety pin or something. Oh well, can't complain now, hope ya'all like it!
