~THE CUTTING CAFE...Who says Spiders have to be Ugly!~

The cutting cafe blinkie
Wow, it's already Hump Day! Where do the hours go anymore. It'll be Halloween before we know it! I hope everyone is hard at work on their Halloween decorations, cards and projects. I'm working on a Halloween swap and thought my friends' daughter would get a kick out of this one. I'm hoping anyways lol 

For this project I was inspired by Lorri's  "Drac In the box" project. I got her tutorial and template and tried to tweak it to make it my own. I took the box template and converted it over so that I could cut it with my Cricut using Make The Cut
The handle on the side, I used a brad where it will really spin around like the real Jack In The Box, if only I could've figured out how to make it pop open..lol Instead of using the Dracula that came with the tutorial, I switched it up and used the HUGE SPIDER PRINTABLE STAMP SET from The Cutting Cafe
I cut my spiders once again using Make The Cut and my Expression. That's the awesome thing about Regina's stamp sets, is that I can choose to cut by hand or use my cutting machine. I have to say since being with The Cutting Cafe DT, I have been using my Expression and Make the Cut more than I ever have, and am actually having fun with it. I hope you like my project and it inspires you to dust some tools off that you haven't used in awhile and bring them back to life! Thanks for looking!!
