Witching You a Happy Halloween



I love this Lizzie Witch! Have you see all the little people? They are adorable and so cool to color!


I've had so much fun making the little designer box in a bag, then I saw that my friend Val from Cal, made an even tinier version... which would be PERFECT for little Halloween treats. You can see the tutorial here. And these are the new dimensions by Valerie (thanks Val!):

2 1/2 x 2 1/2" square of card stock
3" x 6 1/2" piece of patterned paper
3/8" x 6 1/2" strip of scalloped card stock
.

The only difference between this mini version and the regular size version is the score lines for the box portion. Score the 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of card stock 1/2" on all sides. The rest of the directions are the same for adhering the box/bag together.

I love my friend Val.... in case you didn't know. If you haven't been to her blog, you're missing out. LOVE her work too! Thanks for sharing your brilliance my friend.

The little tag is shrinky dinked. It was just a bit too big for my little bag, so I stamped it on shrink plastic,punched it out with my Marvy Oval Scallop Punch, and shot it with my embossing gun. The box is held closed with the new little clippies from Stampin' Up!'s new Clip Assortment! I'm totally diggin those new clips.....

Here is the recipe:

Stamps: Witch, Witch Saying (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: Retired SU! Designer Paper, Pumpkin Pie.
Ink: Ranger Distress Soot Black, Copic Markers.
Other: Shrink Plastic, Sanding Blocks, Clip Assortment (SU!), Gingham Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Embossing Gun, Scor-pal.

The kids are at school!!!! Do you hear that? Listen? Omgosh... no one is saying "mom". I have to admit though, it was hard leaving A at school. My last baby.... isn't a baby anymore. She was so excited..... sigh. Now I can't wait for them to get home so I can hear about their days! :)

Hope your day is super! Thanks for stopping by!
