Spotted on today's workdesk are some stamps, a card in a box in progress, cards I've received, the directions and kits for the cards in a box hiding under some Halloween papers, my glasses, scissors, bits of cardstock, and stitched leaf dies.
As I mentioned last week I was volunteered to teach the card in the box. The version that set this in motion is larger than the one I have directions for but it is easy enough to scale up. I started by making the one on the left. I didn't really like the look of the black gingham paper for this so I abandoned it and went to the polka dot version.
I'm working up 12 kits for this that include the cardstock, directions, and die cuts. Since the focus is on the box and assembling it I'm pre-cutting the dies. Besides the moon and the ghost there are 6 little costumed children to include. So let's see 6 x 13 is..... a lot of die cutting. Yes it is 13 because I have to finish my version of it too! I don't have the greeting that my friend used on the original box but I wasn't worried about that; however, my friend generously stamped out enough greetings for all of us to use with some to spare.
And here is a gratuitous photo of a cat by the fireplace. You can tell this is crafting related because of all the paper and stamps. Below is the original box that started this all off so you can see what we're basically aiming for. Next week I'll have the finished version to show you. I'll finish off the gingham one too but it will be different.
