My Creative Time's July Stamp Release Blog Hop!

Good Morning!  Welcome to My Creative Time's July Release Blog Hop!  If you have arrived here from Leanne's blog you are on the right track.  You finally get to see all 4 new set in their entirety!  Today I am showcasing All Around Halloween.  I decided to do some Halloween gifts.  My children's School doesn't allow candy so I did my "treats" using Crayon boxes.  This is perfect timing since the stores have them out for less than $1 per box right now!  This idea will also be great with the All Around Christmas stamp set also!


 This is how the backs look.


Materials:
Crayola 24 count Crayon Boxes
Papertrey Ink Cardstock -  New Leaf, Orange Zest & Plum Pudding
Orange and Green Felt
Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch
All Ribbon is Celebrations from Michaels
Scor Pal & Tonic Distress Tool
Copic Markers
Dimentionals
Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade & Peeled Pain Distress Inks
Black diamond, Purple, Orange Peel, Crystal, Silver & Waterfall Stickles

I started out with the background strip of paper cut at 2 7/8"" by 8 1/2".  The patterned paper measured 3" by 8 1/2" BEFORE using the border punch.  I adhered the 2 papers together then wrapped them around the crayon box creasing the corners.  Then I put the paper on the Scor pal and scored where I creased the corners. (I do this so I don't have to measure where to score for box).  Then I adhered the paper to the box and decorated.

***GIVEWAY ALERT***

For my giveway today, I am giving away the Scallop and Stitched Circle Die which coordinates with the All Around Halloween stamp set! To win the dies All you have to do is leave a comment here AND a way for me to contact you! You have "11" chances to win! All you have to do is leave a comment on ALL blogs in this hop! EASY PEASY!!! GOOD LUCK!:)


Here is the Bloghop line up:

Thank you for stopping by this week for all of the sneak peeks.  I appreciate every single comment you have left for me!  Your next stop is Jen's blog.  Enjoy the rest of the hop, go buy some stamps and have a great day!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

Love this idea. I wish my kid's schools would say no candy. I would be much happier with something like this coming home. Too much candy at the schools. LOL Thanks for sharing I will have to do something like that. Walmart usually has crayon for $0.25 right before school starts.
