Halloween Mummy Box (or Lollipop Cover)

Halloween Mummy Box with Sizzix Pillow Box

This adorable ‘pillow box’ makes not only a nice Halloween treat box, but you can punch a hole in the bottom and make it a a lollipop cover!

The ‘box’ is the Sizzix ‘pillowbox’ die and it is entirely Sahara Sand paper and torn Sahara Sand with sponged White Crafters ink.  Of course the ‘gravestone’ is the large tag punch… and I inked the greeting from the new ‘Delightful Dozen‘ stamp set (carefully making sure not to ink the image that was on the stamp).

Set: Delightful Dozen
5 ½  x 4 ¾ Sahara Sand cardstock
5 ½ x 3 Sahara Sand (for ripping–or I used the left over from above)
White Crafters Ink, Sponge Daubers, Basic Black Marker
Large Tag Punch, Dimensionals, 4 inches Sticky Strip
Other:  Google eyes

Going Batty for Halloween

The Sizzix Spiderweb embossing folder is one of the cooler embossing folders this season!

I embossed the web on vellum cardstock paper overlayed on black… and it looks properly ‘spooky’!

The bats are the new ‘Bitty Bats’ Jumbo punch with little white ‘eyes’ added.  The overall effect is cool for a very quick little Halloween card.

Below is the recipe, enjoy!
