It's Ink-Credible

Did you get lots of trick-or-treaters yesterday?  The weather was miserable here, so we didn't get too many.  Can you believe I forgot to take a picture of Avery in her costume?   She was dressed up like a fire fighter, just like her daddy.  (He's a real fireman!)  She had the cutest little hose and our animals were so happy to see her.  I did make her one more little thing to put all her treats in. 

I've seen these little frankenstines all over the web made using the top note die. 

Here are some of the things that make mine unique. 

1. I used Gumball Green with the new GG Stitched Satin ribbon. 
2. I added the spider web from Mixed Medley to Franky's face and the sides of the box.
3. I used the smallest oval punch for his nose and eyelids.
4.  To make his mouth I traced the outside of one of the Apothecary Framelits.

I took his picture in the window and it looked like there were eyeballs in the evergreen outside.  Spooky!

Here's Franky with Avery's treats inside.  I've never really made things for Halloween before besides perhaps cupcakes for my kid's classrooms when they were younger.  This was fun.  Perhaps next year I will make something for all our trick or treaters.  We usually have less than 20. 

Now for some great Stampin' UP! news.

Your Frankenstein is so cute! And what a fantastic idea to trace around a die to make the mouth!
