Halloween Fun!

This past weekend, some of us girls went over to Claudette's clubhouse out in Ewa for some Halloween fun! We were all to make a Halloween Rak goodie for each other to add more ideas into our crafting bank...I had many ideas pop in and out of my head and then the night before, the lightbulb went on and I came up with these cute spider boxes. Here's a close-up of the box and the cute spider! The spider's body is a 1 3/4" circle (SU) and I used a 1/2" circle punch for the eyes. The eyeball is a 1/4" circle (handpunch). The legs used a EK Success Swirl Flourish punch,
The top of the box opens up and reveals a message...sort of like a card and a box all in one. This super idea was inspired by a blog called Inky Wings by Maya and I have no idea what country she is from. The instructions are measured in centimeters so I had no clue on what to do, except try it out for myself with the size that I wanted it to be. If you are interested, I was thinking of doing a fast tutorial on how to make these cute and fun card/boxes...let me hear from you!
Here's a photo of all of the great raks in our Halloween idea exchange. Thank you ladies for all of the fun raks!
We did a couple of make and takes too! This was the cute double tin holder that we made instructed by Michelle...thank you Michelle for such a cute and fun project!! We also did a cute calendar using our BIA machine sponsored by Janis...thanks Janis! I didn't finish mines yet!
Here's the view of the project opened up.
What a cute little pumpkin! Michelle's daughter, Amara was enjoying a yummylicious brownie baked by Aunty Joy D...you can see the sweet powdered sugar smile she has here!
Our wonderful hostess, Claudette, made these cute brownie ghosts! At first, I thought they were eggs...I guess I didn't catch that it was a Halloween party! LOL!
Thank you so much Claudie for hosting such a fun party! Thanks ladies for the great Halloween ideas! And thank YOU for visiting me today!!
