A Thrilling Treat Box

Happy Friday, y'all!
I'm just thrilled to be sharing my very first video tutorial with all of you: 
I've used the brand new Halloween collection, THRILLING by Authentique Paper!

Here is a little peek at the completed project:

 Now for the video tutorial on how to create this all-in-one box:
To complete the front of the box I used a Lace Nesting Die from Lifestyle Crafts
for the large mat and then layered with different circles of patterned paper and stickers
from the 12X12 Details Sticker Sheet.

  Petaloo flowers and a May Arts Ribbon bow add some softness and fun.  
The cute jack'o lantern is from Recollections...I placed it over the pumpkin
that was a part of the sticker design.

And don't forget to dress up the inside of the box!

 To make the box even-more functional, I punched two small holes in the top
of the box and threaded through ribbon for a hanger.
You will also notice that alongside the edge of the box I added a strip of orange
border from the  "Moonlit" paper.  The completed box size is approximately 4"W X 4.5"H
I hope that you enjoy the project and find it thrilling too :) 

I have one more quick project to share using the Thrilling Collection, along with
a couple of punches from McGill, Inc. (this will be up on their blog today too)

 I know right!  Isn't he a hoot?  I used the McGill Vintage Label Punch 
(for the oval shape and wings) to create the bat.  After punching the scrolled label (twice)
I cut it in half at an angle...even the left-over portion would make cute wings too;
I was actually torn as to which wings I liked best :)

I chalked around the shapes with a bit of white just to give some depth.
For the ears, I used one of the blooms from the Petite Petals Punch and
attached it to the back of the oval.  The eyes are two small pearls that I dotted with a
black permanent marker...juxtapose them a little so that he looks batty and confused LOL

 The bottom layers were punched from the Thrilling Paper Bundle using a 2.25" scallop punch
and circle punch.  Oh and the white label is a premade from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for visiting me today!  Hope you have a blessed weekend :)

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
