He’s Alive!!!


     As I had mentioned a couple of days ago, I’ve been dutifully creating these adorable friendly Frankenstein treat boxes.  I’ve made enough for Adam’s classroom and all the super ladies that help me collect, count, cut and sort labels and box tops each week.  There are a few more for PTA gals that I see on a weekly basis and a few staff members as well.  Yes, you can say that I’ve mass produced! :)

100_2187     I cannot take credit for these cuties.  I first saw him on SCS in this post.  Of course, I had to change mine up slightly and turn them horizontally.  This allowed me to add the hardware (retired silver eyelets) to the sides.  The eyelets serve no purpose and are merely just for looks.  They don’t hold the box closed.  The boxes stay closed on there own.  I used the Pillow Box Die and my Big Shot to crank these cuties out.  The eyes and nose are 3/4” circle punch in the retired Green Galore (retired) and Whisper White.  The Basic Black eye spot is 1/2” circle punch with a ‘gleam’ of White Gel Pen.  The scars and smiles were hand drawn using the Basic Black Marker.  The hair is a strip of Basic Black that I trimmed using a pair of decorative scissors that haven’t seen the light of day until now.  I’ve added a little bit of Green Galore sponged onto the cheeks, nose and eyelids.  He is stuffed with five yummy Jolly Rancher ® hard candies.

I’m sure the kids will love them.  I’m certain the adults will too!  Who wouldn’t?  Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to put a smile on someone’s face!

Haunting Hugs,
