Welcome to the first Paper Flock Blog Hop. This is a blog hop with all members of Phyllis Shepard’s Stampin’ Flock team. Each month there will be a new theme so I know that you will want to follow along to see what we do each month. This month’s theme was Fall/Halloween in 3D.
I went with the Halloween part of the this month theme. I wanted to create something that was very Halloweenish but cut at the same time. So I was looking through my supplies and decided I wanted to do something with the Frankenstein Monster. But I didn’t want to do something scary I wanted to do something on the cute side. So I created a fun Easel card Box with Frankie on it. Here’s a look at my project.
Tips & Tricks:
To create this Easel gift box I used all scraps. Yes, everything used on came from my scrap bins; which if you think about it is kind of fitting since Frankenstein was piecemealed together.
Once I got the box created I created the drawer and the easel card on top. I created Frankenstein by using the Coffee Cups framelits. I cut one of the cups out of Old Olive Cardstock and the hair was cut out using the lid. I punched the white eye balls out of Whisper white cardstock and the 3/4″ hole punch. The pupils were created with basic black cardstock and a 1/2 circle punch I attached them to the white circles with mini glue dots. I drew in the highlights on the eyes with a white gel pen (retired) but you can use the white chalk marker. I drew in the nose and mouth with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. The blots were created with a strip of Basic Gray cardstock. I just cut the little straight pieces out and punched out a 1/2″ circle and cut it apart and attached to the end with glue dots. I then attached it to Frankenstein with a little fast fuse. I attached the Frankenstein to the front of the easel card after attaching a 2 3/4 square piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. To make the easel part stand up I used a double flag that I created out of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped Trick or Treat in Pumpkin Pie on it.
You can fit about four Ghirardelli Chocolates on the inside of the box drawer. So this makes for a great treat holder for your adult friends, coworkers, neighbors, or just anyone you want to give a little surprise to.
