I just realised that I haven’t shared this little Halloween box yet and as we’ve only a week to go, I thought I’d best get around to it
The Owl Builder punch worked overtime again by providing my friendly little ghost.

Two Mini Milk Cartons were cut from Textured Basic Black card and one panel cut from each before assembling the box. The tops of the cartons were simply folded and pushed down into the centre. Frightful Sight DSP was used to cover the box and then Basic Black Ribbon adhered around the top and bottom of the paper. The sentiment was stamped onto Basic Black card with Versamark and then heat embossed with White EP before punching out with the Jewelry Tag. An owl body and the tiny eyes were punched from Whisper White card and the medium eyes were punched from Basic Black card. The “ghost” was assembled with the owl body upside down and the sentiment adhered behind it before popping up on dimensionals on the side of the box.
The box simply pops up open.
The great thing about the Frightful Sight papers is that most of them have a non-spooky side to them, making them great for cards all year round and the colour scheme makes them especially good for masculine cards.
Back again tomorrow.
