I am shamelessly CASEing these punkins:
They were apparently a big hit a Founders Circle, Stampin’ Up!’s recognition event for the top 100 demonstrators. Janet Wakeland shared them privately with her RemARKable Stampers team , and Patty Bennett shared them on her blog with a little more detail.
I made a punkin-patch worth of these for my hostess club – I know they’ll be after the chocolate inside!
I used a variety of different stamps to embellish the sides – Chalk Lines, Sweet Stack, Awesomely Artistic, and Dotty Angles. It’s a simple idea: assemble the Curvy Keepsake Box, cut a slit down the center of the Spider Web doily and slip it over the handles. I punched a 2 1/2″ circle of Black Glimmer paper and used a craft knife to cut a slit in the center of that (Patty’s example uses the Word Window punch). I slipped the circle over the handles right on top of the doily.
Finally, I punched two trees from Black Glimmer paper and adhered them to one another with Tombo (the Wonder Adhesive). I made a Builder Bow Punch bow with Happy Haunting DSP (told you I used it up!) and used Glue dots to put the bow on the “tree” and the tree on the handle. Patty’s version is a little different – the hat lifts on and off – but I wanted my to stay put.
There’s still time – just a few cranks of that Big Shot and you’ll be halfway there!
