Sandy wows with a whole set of gorgeous projects using our Box Staples! Wow!

"I love Halloween and nothing makes me happier than creating something Halloween with Graphic 45.  The Hallowe’en in Wonderland Deluxe Collection is so awesome!  I decided to create a trinket box with a mirror that turned.  In the front it shows Alice looking in and the Queen of Hearts looking back.  When you turn the mirror around, you find a collage of many of the characters on the back.  To create this trinket box, I used two of the Graphic 45 Staple Book Boxes—the ATC one on the top and the regular book box on the bottom. I changed them up just a bit so that they open up more like a trinket box and the bottom one now has a drawer to hold a fun Wonderland Junk Journal where I added many of the quotes from the fabulous Alice in Wonderland book.  Happy Crafting!" ~ Sandy

Tip:

When fussy cutting out my images, I like to use a dark gray Copic marker to color the cut edges where the white might show.  This finishes off the cut out shapes nicely and you can also use the marker to color in whiter areas that you can’t cut away to make those areas less noticeable.

Nico Scrap shares the most amazing card. It's as beautiful as a canvas!

"I have created a card using this adorable collection called “ Hallowe’en in wonderland” which is one of my favourite collections for halloween projects. When i was just a child my mama always read me “Alice in Wonderland” book and i loved that moment so much that when i’ve seen this collection i just fell in love. I’ve decided to make and halloween card that i’ll give to my mom on the most spooky night as a little heart treat :)" ~Nico Scrap
