These are the cute boxes I was making when I came up with my super cute Wise Men from the last post.
I used the box pattern from a Stampin’ Up! Convention make and take project for the base (these are in Chocolate Chip). Here it is:
Now, to make them look like gravestones, I cut out a pillow box using my Sizzix Big Shot in Basic Gray. I cut off one side so I had a single rounded top. I then sponged them in Basic Gray ink. I added a “happy halloween” salutation from All Holidays in Basic Gray also.
For the little additions, I added a ghost (from the Leaves #2 die), a bat (using the rounded tab punch) and a pumpkin. To make that I stamped the little pumpkin face in Basic Black from Holiday Blitz. I then punched it out with a 3/4″ circle punch and added a stem and a little leaf.
Lastly, I filled them with some jelly beans and nuggets.
Thanks for stopping by today!
