Did I Make It In Time?

ETA: Hi!! Thanks for your patience!! Click here to download a pattern for this project.

Phew!!! Thought I might not make this post in time...this project just would not turn out the way I saw it in my mind!! Anyway...I fiddled with it enough and this is how it turned out:



I'll post a link to a pattern tomorrow (after I get it tweaked just right!!). It's a little Halloween treat box. I'm in a groove of using a brad to make things swing and turn...so, the star brad you see actually makes the yellow circle spin to reveal different greetings. First is "trick or treat"...then:



"Smell my feet", and last (but most important):



Give me something good to eat!!!



This is what the circle looks like when you take it out of the box. The circle was from a pre-cut set of circles I had from "The Paper Cut"...it measures 4.38" in diameter. I punched a hole right in the middle of the circle.

For the box (template will be posted tomorrow)...cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Cut out the square opening in the front of the card and use a Marvy (green) circle punch to make the semi-circle punch at the top. Put the circle inside of the box and mark the center of the box. Use a brad to punch through the card and the circle. Use double stick tape on the two 1/4" tabs to put the box together.

Next...I stamped, colored and cut out the 2 trick-or-treaters. I stamped the words "trick or treat" right through the opening onto the yellow circle...then pasted "Buddy the Clown" right next to it. I turned the circle just enough for Buddy to clear the opening. I did the same thing for the next 2 greetings and images.

Here's the giveaway:



To enter, leave me a comment by midnight (Hawaii time) Friday, October 2. I'll pick one winner on Saturday, October 3..so, please be sure to check back!!!
