My Halloween Creatures!

I'm having a blast with my Curvy Keepsakes Box Die. I posted a giraffe I made HERE with it about a week ago and made these 3 new ones on the same day. Aren't they adorable?

I had made cards and goodie bags a few years ago with all three of these so I went back to my posts and recreated them with this new die. Here are close-ups:

Mr. Dracula

Eyes: 3/4" Circle Punch and a small hand-held punch for the pupils. Nose: Owl Punch, Teeth: the tip of the Tree Punch. Ears: Bird Punch. Hair: Cut a piece of Basic Black in the shape of the die and cut above the eyes with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.

Mr. Mummy

Eyes: Add a rectangle of Basic Black to the box front first, 3/4" Circle Punch & 1/2" Circle Punch. Mummy Wrap: tear strips of cardstock, ink the edges where torn, glue in place over die shape and trim as you go to the die shape.

  and Mr. Frankenstein
Eyes: 3/4" Circle Punch & 1/2" Circle Punch. Nose: cut-out from the die-top of the handle. Hair: hand-cut with Paper Snips. Bolts on neck: Ornament Punch from last year (retired), you can substitute with another shape.
