Spooktacular Stackers by Laura C

This "spooktacular" Halloween decor was made
using the Echo Park Apothecary collection and
a few embellishments!

Here is a close up of the top of the stackers.....

This project started with 3&1/2" and 5" paper mache'
round boxes. The top box, was made by inking all the
edges of the box and it's lid, with Black Soot Distress Ink.
Then I cut out one of the labels on the EP journal box
sheet in the's a perfect fit! I did distress it up as well.
Then I just covered the box lid's edge and the box, with 2
different Pretty Papers (PP's) from the set (I measured
these to fit my box, the lid was 3/4" the box was 2").
The additions.....a 1/2" strip of the diamond pattern paper,
a tag cut from the journal sheet, I added some black brads,
the star sticker, bat sticker, and lizard legs sticker, all from
the sheet in the kit, and a tiny twine bow to finish it off.
I did ink all the paper pieces with the Black Soot ink and
the result close up is here:

Next was the bottom box....pretty much the same drill....
PP's cut to fit (1/2" for the lid, 2&3/4" for the box) I cut
the poison label out of the journal sheet (all pieces inked),
and the bottles and 31st October are stickers. The twine
and seam binding ribbon in grey, pleated and bowed.

Here's the close up:

The finishing touch was Doodle Bug baker's twine
to tie the 2 boxes together.

Hope this project inspires you to do something crafty today!
