We are halfway through the 12 Weeks of Halloween with this Pocket Bac Sanitizer Gift Box for Week 6.  

I thought that an alternative to something sweet might be nice this week and Bath and Body Works has these cute Pocket Bac sanitizers for Halloween and fall.

The Trick or Tweet stamp set has some really cute images.  This little mummy cat had not seen ink so he's the star of the show for this project.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial...

Changing the Background of Designer Series Paper

IMG_0731

Here's a tip that will help you easily change the white or light neutral background color of designer paper. 

When creating a Halloween project, I wanted the background color of this paper from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper collection.  The Whisper White background just wasn't the right touch for the idea in my head.  A nifty little tool came "to the rescue".

Let's take a look at the video tutorial...

  • Cut the base from Whisper White card stock that measures 5" x 4 1/2". Score at 3/8" from all sides. 
  • Cut off squares formed by score lines on that piece.  You might want to angle cut those sides for an easier fit.
  • Apply liquid glue to the sides (sparingly) and allow to become tacky. 
  • Carefully insert into box bottom and press against those sides from the inside of the bag with your Bone Folder.
  • Tag:  Stamp as shown the tag from the kit.

  • Embellish as shown or as desired.
