Trick or Treat!

We have our first challenge at Scor-Pal, and would love for you to play along. The theme this month is boxes. There will be a random prize drawing at the end of the month for a Scor-Tape prize and we will also pick one project from Sept. entries to be a guest designer for the October Challenge and also get a Scor-Tape prize.

With Halloween quickly approaching, I thought a treat box was in order. I used the Window Box tutorial from the Scor-Pal website (there are tons of free tutorials there - all kinds of fun ways to use your Scor-Pal!) I did change the dimensions of the box, however, to make it a little bigger. (See the end of the post for details).

I got to play with some of the new dies from Cottage Cutz - and actually, the Witch's Castle Door inspired the whole project.....because, the really cool thing is that you can make the door open!

So, I used the Halloween Fun stamp from Crafty Secrets to stamp my sweet little trick-or-treater, and glued her to a piece of acetate in the door opening. I glued some Autumn Flower Soft around her feet to look like leaves blowing in. She looks so shy coming to the door for a little candy. I added accessories from the Castle Door die, as well as the Lantern Mini and Owl Mini dies, to complete the scene. The Happy Halloween on the side of the box is from the Haunted House Border.

So get out your Scor-pal and your Scor-tape (cause that's the only way to put together boxes!) and come join the fun! Just check out the Scor-pal blog for more details! And if you'd like to play along in another challenge, The Scrapping Cottage has a monthly challenge with a $25 gift certificate up for grabs. The current challenge is a great sketch designed by Angelica. So come play along with us!

To make this box, please refer to the tutorial at the Scor-Pal website, but instead of cutting your cardstock 9 x 6 3/4, cut it 12" x 8 3/4". Your score lines will be 1", 5 1/2", 6 1/2", 11". After you turn the paper, you will score at 3/4" and 7 3/4".
