The Kraft Journal - Shape it Up !


This week our theme at The Kraft Journal is
Shape it Up !

 I don't do shaped cards very well.  They always turn out looking like a poorly skilled child has done them.  So, this week I decided to make a little teeny treat box for Halloween - square is a shape, right ?  At least it is 3D, lol.

The box was made from the Kraft & Black Card stock pad, with the center cut out and covered from the inside with clear craft plastic, and some design paper. The lid has sequins around the edges.  The little box was completed with some scary spider stickers, and Gypsy Market seam binding.  The stained grungy tag was made more grungy with some ink, and a stamp, some tape, a crow brad were added, along with Gypsy Market seam binding, and Earthy Hemp Cord.

 I love that little r.i.p. stamp.  The box I made using a scorer, wow, that went together in about two minutes !  The quality of the paper in this card stock pad is really top notch, and lends itself to a box beautifully !
