Happy Halloween?? :)

Hi everyone!!

Today I am up on the Helmar DT blog and I wanted to share my creation here too! :)

I altered a cigar box I found at a local antique store --


 And here is what I turned it into :)






I took a wooden knob I had, misted it red and adhered it down to make it easier to open --


I adhered everything with Helmar's Craft Glue and Quick Dry 450! :)

I used Graphic 45's "Happy Haunting" that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com 




And don't forget to enter my giveaway for Mo's class!!!!



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  4. How adorable girlfriend. You did an amazing job. I love that paper and picked some up at Scrapbooks Etc., a couple of weeks ago. Don't know what I'm gonna do with it yet. I plan on posting some Halloween graphics soon, so keep an eye out.

    Hugs,
