Graveyard Box

I was feeling crafty today!  Ever since I have started school I have not been crafting as much as I used to, but I made the time today.  Here is the Halloween box I made this evening:

I used the "Wrap It Up" Cricut cartridge to create the base of this box, it is on page 62 of the handbook.  It was cut at 10" out of dark grey card stock, using the box feature.  I also cut it again from green, then just trimmed it to keep the grass.  The black piece, that highlights the grass, and the gravestone are the box feature on shift.  I used Cricut Craft Room to hide parts of those cuts so that I could cut them in different colors.

I used some stamps from Scrappy Moms Stamps to accent and provide a sentiment on the gravestone.  The spiderweb and bat are from the Bewitched set and the sentiment is from the A Haunting We Will Go set.  I also inked around the edges of the gravestone with pumice stone Distress Ink.

The zombie hands reaching up from the earth are from the Silhouette Store.  They are by Rivka Wilkins (#48133).  I cut them at about 2" from varying shades of grey and green.  I adhered them to the box with foam tape.

I put the box together, but left one side unadhered so that I could put something inside, then seal it up later.

I made this for the following challenges:
BBTB2: gift box
Fantabulous Cricut: Halloween project
