Spooky Black Bird

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to stop by and have a look around.  Today, I have a few photos of this cute little Halloween box I made.  I got the idea out of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog 2011-2012, pg.10.  I used all Stampin' Up! products (minus the bird and paper mache box) to create this adorable decoration.

Isn't he just adorable?  Before your mind starts going crazy...the paper mache box is upside down.  I attached the bird with a hot glue gun.  The Raven Lace is a retired product from last year.  But everything else I used is current and you can purchase them today!  

At first, I wanted to create this project as a Virtual Kit for October.  However, I have had a bear of a time finding the non-Stampin' Up! products (aka: paper mache box and bird).  So, I made just one.  I may make one for my daughter, as she just LOVES Halloween!  I think she likes it more than Christmas!  But, that wouldn't be surprising.  {For those folks who know me, know that I LOVE  St. Valentine's Day more than Christmas.}

I did use the Vanilla Smooch spray to give the finished project some random shimmer and gleam.  I left some of those hot glue strings on this project, as they kinda look like old spider web strings.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd change the hat.  In the mini catalog, the hat doesn't have a rim.  I thought it should have a rim, you know like a witches hat.  But, it was a bear to create.
Anyways, enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks again for stopping by!
