A Special Place for a Skeleton!

 I found this cool little box at Hobby Lobby and just had to have it. I seem to collect anything wooden that looks remotely interesting.
Anyway, it looked like a perfect little Halloween box to decorate! 


This is the front with German Scrap on the bottom with my little wooden Punkins that I painted.
The Candelabra and Cat are Masonite cut outs from Retro Cafe Art Gallery...of course, as well as the Bat on top.
The papers and stickers are all from Graphic 45.

You open the door and Viola! Here's what you get!

With a little adjustment, the Skeleton fit into the box...bend carefully and the chipboard will be OK. 

The Pumpkins are colored with 2 colors of Inka Gold. and the Spider is painted and penned.
Boo is from the Newsprint Word Collage Cut Outs.

I love the checkered papers along the sides and tops. Perfect fit here.

You can see the different layers of UTEE on the Bat Cut Out and the Purple Glitter Glue on the Spider.

I painted the Candelabra white and added Sharpie Markers in blue and purple. Mr. Cat has Black Distress Stickles on him.
The Orange German Scrap was sanded and then the Inka Golds were added.
Black Cats and Happy Haunting are stickers from G45.

The little wooden Punkins are fun to paint with Liquid Pearls, and their faces are added with a fine black Sharpie pen.

And this is the back.....Gotta LOVE those pumpkin letters!!!
