Cube-O-Lanterns

Welcome to day 2 of the Falling for Halloween Blog Hop hosted by Maria! We have the same great line up of bloggers with more projects for you to enjoy! And don't forget the blog candy that Maria has on her blog! 

You should have arrived here from Michele's Blog. If you didn't and want to start at the beginning of the hop, go to Maria's Blog.


My project for today is Cube-O-Lanterns! 



I used the cube box from the Wrap It Up cartridge and some jack o'lantern faces from Pumpkin Carvings and Paper Doll Dress to make the Cube-O-Lanterns. Using CCR, I cut the cube at 2 inches and then sized layers for the sides of the cube. I positioned the faces on the cube, one of the base layers {black card stock} and one of the top layers {patterned paper}. When I assembled the cubes, I added a piece of vellum over the face on the cube and then added the other layers. You could fill these with candy or other small treats, but I put a battery operated tea light in each one. . .and my Cube-O-Lanterns came to life!



Your next stop on the hop is the talented Cindy at In Love With Paper. Thanks for visiting!
