Another Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland box.....

Ok, this is probably a little redundant......but.....

I loved, LOVED my other Graphic 45 box so much I really didn't want to part with it. So I assessed the paper I had left and discovered I had enough to make a second one! (And possibly a third, if it's small...and because now my sister wants one...)

For this one I did use a bigger treasure chest box. This gave me a little more room to play with and do some more of the UTEE cards. I think it's safe to say this one turned out almost better than the first one!


I'm thinking I may add one more card on the back here but I haven't decided yet. (For details on how I made the cards all cool and wavy check out this post)


I tried something different with my bottle on this. I filled it with a mixture of glossy accents and glitter and stirred it up. It of course then settled in the night and the set up SO there is no glittery awesomeness to show you. But it does still look pretty cool!


For this one I ran across a Tim Holtz pocketwatch in Michael's and decided to use it for the little Mad Hatter tag. Since there was some space in the watch I added some purple Flower Soft as a shaker element.


View of the top.....



Can you tell I just LOVE how these cards came out?



I did the same want ads paper on the inside of the box. I added some color to it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make it look a little bit older.



And there you have it! I think I'm going to do a Christmas box with the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium paper I picked up at the CK show a couple of weeks ago. Not entirely sure what shape of box yet....but hey, it's only September! 

Supplies:

Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland paper stack
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Vintage Photo, Black Soot
Lots and lots of Mod Podge
Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel
Tim Holtz Pocket Watch
Tim Holtz Glass Vials
Glossy Accents
