Spooky 3x3's!

I've been busy trying to get this cute little box of 3x3 cards finished this week! I love the Wicked Cool stamp set! Check it out!

There's a tiny bit of room for a tiny little pen to the left of these little cards. I think I found the pen at a local office supply store. The box holds 4 3x3 cards and their envelopes.

I used all the images from the Wicked Cool stamp set and embellished them with the new bat punch. (The card with the spider web was "embellished" with a 3-D spider -- ooh yuck! My spider is cute though! I did a second one for the top of the box:

The box has just a simple slide cover that I embossed with the new SpiderWeb embossing folder in Stampin' Up's Holiday Mini Catalog. I swiped it with some white craft ink, mostly so my spider would show up LOL!

To make the spider, I used a tutorial that I found on Stamper's Connection from Jackie Topa (one of the queens of punches!). These spiders are a bit different from last year's spiders (that used the photo corner punch) because the legs are actually made from the bat punch. I hear y'all saying, "How'd she do that?!" To make the legs, punch out one bat, slightly move up your punch to the top of the punched area (which results in just a sliver of legs, as long as you move it up enough -- if you don't, the bat "ears" and the newly attempted bat "sliver" will result in 2 legs rather than one set of legs if that makes any sense! LOL!) The body is a 3/4" circle, and the head is a 1/2" circle -- for the head, use your cropadile to punch out 2 eyes in a black 1/2 circle, then layer a white circle underneath.

Here's a better view of the 4 cards in my little box.
