I saw that the House Mouse challenge was to make anything but a card, and I thought it would be cute to have this little mousie jumping out of something...somehow. I had made this little coffin box over the weekend...how convenient...and decided to go with it. :) I got the template for the box here, was very easy to assemble. There's even a liner for the box. I cut another piece of orange CS to go on the top of the box, stamped it with spiders from Inka's Halloween Trails set, and BOO from Martha Stewart's Gooey Alphabet. The ghosts were from a punch I have, inked their edges with silver. I'm giving this box to my son and the candy will be in a wrapper, but for the picture I thought the candy corn would look good tumbling out of the open box. I used the Oh Happy Days image from House Mouse, colored with Prismas blended with baby oil, then cut it out. I cut out a circle from some plastic packaging with a Nestabilities circle, cut it into a spiral and attached each end of the spiral with silver bat-shaped brads to the inside of the box. Then attached the mousie to the spiral to make it look like she was jumping out of the box when it was opened. Surprise!! (sorry about the punch, used it to prop open the box top). ~*grin*~
