Hi Stampers,
Halloween is getting closer and I have made the cutest little GIFT CARD THINLITS "FREAKY FRIENDS" HALLOWEEN BOX for you.  This box is my entry for this weeks DOStamper STAR Thursday Challenge Card DSC#101

I made the box top for this box using the new Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.  You can find the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies Set on page 11 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  LOVE IT!!! I really thought this thinlit was a great product when I used it to make a Gift Card Envelope Holder, but now for boxes too,  I really love it!

This is definitely a Must Have Item, for sure!  Today's project, my GIFT CARD THINLITS "FREAKY FRIENDS" HALLOWEEN BOX, is my second version attempt making a box using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies. I had made a YouTube Video for the first previous version of this box.  The basic directions and the technique will be the same for both boxes as I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies Set to make the top of the box for both versions just different paper from the Motley Monster DSP.. Here is the link to view my first blog post version of my Halloween Box

Check out my YouTube Video below on the making of this box. Until next time, God Bless!
