It's The Boo Box For This Witch

This poor witch has seen better days! It seems she has crash landed and now she's become part of this cute little "BOO" box!

Where did I get those cute boots did you say?!!! Why they're one of the many fabulous Halloween sets from The Cutting Cafe!!

This set is called Witch Boot Shaped Card and includes cutting files written in PDF and WPC as well as 4 sentiments and a matching envelope. They're super fun and easy to work with. I just printed the boots and accessories out on printer paper and used them as a template.

I chose to decorate my box with them instead of folding them for a card. I was inpired by those ground decorations you see this time of year with the witch boots sticking up in the air as if she crash landed in the ground. I love the whimsy of it don't you?

As I said before, I started by cutting out the boots and adding the accessories that come with the file. The star and buckle were cut using silver card stock and the belt was cut using marigold morning. I added hand drawn stitching and spider webbed brads to the belt. Then to give it the shine of patent leather, I glossed the boots with glossy accents. This finished box measures 3 x 6 x 4 inches. I'm gonna fill it with candy and give it to a friend.

I totally missed World Card Making Day so I hope this makes up for it. I was at a speech tournament with my son all day yesterday! The good news is his group placed third in their category and he brought home a trophy. Woo Hoo! Go Hunter!!!! As if that wasn't good enough, their school took first place overall. It was and awesome day and the kids had a great time and performed their little hearts out!

Well, I'm outta here for now. Have a very crafty weekend and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
