Trick or Treat Shadow Box!

Good morning to all my spooky followers!

It's the "Fun~mare Before Halloween"  Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Linda at Krazy Quilling, she is super creative!  To start from the beginning, go to Jess at Kinder Stampo...there is lots of blog candy give aways going on so be sure to check out all the blogs along the way!

Now on to my project...I've seen a few of these types of pictures going around, so of course I had to add a twist or two!  It's hard to see but I added glass etching for the moon.  And of course Halloween wouldn't be the same with out my favorite...candy corns, which are under the glass.  I hope you enjoy and get some ideas so you can create your own!


Recipe:
T shirt 12 x 12 frame
Happy Hauntings cart
house cut 5.18 x 7.07
trick or treat cut 6.41 x 1.60 out of vinyl
ghost cut 1.05 x 1.24 don't forget to flip one
Holiday Cake
moon and bat cut 6.68 x 1.96 out of vinyl
bat use regular piece
moon use the part you would normally throw away as a stencil for the glass etching
A Child's Year
cut the kids at 3" high
cut shadow based on 3" high regular piece
Bazzill paper
Stampin Up stamps

after I did mine I thought of this~ etch the inside part of the glass, it seemed to show up better.  I was unable to turn the glass around or I would have. 

When assembling leave enough room for the candy corns!  The hard part is looking at the candy corns and not being able to get to them!  I think they call it a diet! :)

Ok your next stop should be Madison Funky Cards...I can't wait to see what she'll come up with!  If you get lost along the way, the list is right here for to get back on track!

  Enjoy!

I want to make this, can I buy the vinyl from you already cut into the bat, kids, house, or can you direct me to where i can buy it.

liz at liz's paper loft said...

@Megwag, I'm sorry I'm not able to cut and sell them. I used Cricut black vinyl. All the cartridges and sizes are listed above. Have fun with your creation! hugs, liz
