Spider Treat Box

      We're starting a new challenge at Pammie's Inky Pinkies this morning and our theme is "Anything Goes."  We are being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe and they have some of the cutest projects, including this adorable Spider Treat Box.  Their .svg file is designed for electronic cutting machines but, since I don't have one, I used their .pdf file and cut everything by hand.  

     Mine is a little different than the sample you'll see on the Cutting Cafe's website but that's because I printed the spider onto white CS, colored it black with my ProMarkers, cut it with scissors and attached it to a little, orange box I made with my ScorPal board.  Black and Orange is still my favorite color combo for Halloween, even though I'm perfectly fine with purple and some shade of muted olive green having been added as spooky colors in more recent years.  Those of you who are over 50 will know what I mean.

     I used tiny google eyes to make the spider eyes, opting to add them to two small ovals so that they looked more like 'people' eyes.  I found that spreading them across the spider face (the actual placement of real spider eyes) was distracting and nearly unidentifiable so did them this way instead.  At least, you still get the sense of multiple eyes.  :-D

     I used sparkly, metallic, wired ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to make the triple loop bow and attached that to the top of the spider, as though it was a jaunty, autumn chapeau!  Hope you like him.  If you have an electronic cutter, you could make dozens of these with the .svg file from The Cutting Cafe in the amount of time I spent making just this one.


     Don't forget that our challenges at Pammie's Inky Pinkies run every week, starting on Mondays and our theme is always Anything Goes except for the occasional 5th Monday in a month when we have a specific theme.  Come play with us - this is an Anything Goes week.          :-D

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
