Curvy Box Fun for Halloween


Halloween is fast approaching and a while back I purchased the Curvy Keepsake Box die from Stampin' Up because I was seeing so many cute creatures you can make with it on Pinterest. I showed all the ideas to my grandson and he picked the spider and Mike Wazowski as his favorites.  The spider was easy to make because this kind stamper gave directions in her blogpost here.  I made a bunch of these for Nate and for a party coming up at my home. I used lots of  circle punches and dies for both, and the spider legs are made with two square dies, then cut in half.

Mike Wazowski was not as easy, but I figured it out. Here is a link to the original one I found on Pinterest, as well as a cute Santa, Angry Bird and penguin on the same blogpost.

I am entering these boxes in the Use a Die Cut challenges at Wags 'n Whiskers and Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge.
