Happy Halloween…well, not quite! However, now is the time to order your Halloween products (to avoid backorder issues). Today we are creating another adorable creature with the Penguin Builder Punch. In my last blog post I shared a Count Dracula created with the same punch. So fun!
This fun Halloween treat holder is called a Tombstone Box and it comes ready to assemble – even the adhesive is in place, just remove the backing! I had some fun with the Frightfully Cute Bundle – the greetings are perfect and the label and spider web dies were a great way to decorate the inside of the box. The dies in the Frightfully Cute Bundle also include the “moon” die. I used the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (which is FREE during Sale-a-bration) to make the sparkly moon!
I love to add special finishing touches to any project. For this project I colored rhinestone basic Jewels with the Basic Black Dark Stampin’ Blend and add them to the shirt and to the greeting label. The fun Cute Adhesive Backed Stars were perfect with the moon too and added some additional shine (I’m all about the shine!). Of course, the beautiful Glittered Black Organdy Ribbon was the perfect finishing touch!

Thank you SO much for letting me share this cute project. Special thanks to demonstrator Dawn Olchefske for sharing the idea of creating a Frankenstein from the Penguin Punch!
All last week in my Suestampfield Facebook group we were having some Halloween fun! Including sharing favorite pet Halloween costumes. Here is my pooch Winston dressed up like a race horse a few years ago. Come hang out with us HERE!
