Booglie Box with Sproingy Spidey

This box was so much fun & way too easy. I used to be scared witless to do 3D projects! Now I think I like 'em more than cards. This is done with a template from the S.U. Demo site. It's actually a "carrot box" but not anymore. :0) I'll gladly send it to anyone who wants to make one. Just leave me your email.

I just printed it directly onto the designer series paper, by cutting it to 8.5 x 11 and printing on the (white) back. Then I ran a sheet of "Mellow Moss" cardstock through to print it again. I cut the two of them out and placed them both pattern side up. I glued the "Mellow Moss" cardstock on top of the white side of the d.p. (with its pattern facing up.) Then, I scored the dotted fold lines. It was easy to fold and get a perfect point. The top is also super easy to punch, because the holes are marked right on the pattern.

I just stuck the embossed "Boo!" on (it's done by using a stamp'n'write marker to stamp just the boo from "Happy Boo to You!"--and the exclamation mark too.) Then, I just traced over the letters with my versamarker and dipped it in black detail embossing powder. The shadow is done with a stamp'n'write marker. The hodge podge hardware is fastened on the before using thin double-sided tape to close the box along the side. I used the antique brass wire from the "wire works" to attach the spider tot he hodgepodge before I stuck it on with the matching brads. Click on the picture below for a closer look. :0)

For details on how to make this little guy please see the previous post. Thanks for Looking,


EDITED TO ADD: For a template to make the box with (one that prints two to a standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch size page) see this source for the template. Hope it works for you: s.c.s. thread double template...

Here's my Christmas version with clearer directions (and on one sheet of thicker cardstock.)

I am new on a DT and one of my first assignments is a Halloween treat box. I was terrified. I've really not made 3-D projects that turned out very well. On you blog you said easy so I thought I would try. It was so easy. Thank you so very much. I really appreciate information like this to help newbies. It turned out fabulous if I do say so myself. Thank you again. Hugs, Robin
