Stampin’ Up Punches

I have been inundated with questions about the Stampin’ Up punches I use and to help me out my mate Lisa has come up with a special offer – but it is for this weekend only!
I remember when Lisa and I saw these punches at a Stampin’ Up demonstration at the NEC HobbyCrafts Show a couple of years ago, and we went bananas to get our hands on them. They are just the perfect size for decorating Elizabeth Shaw mint crisps (the milk chocolate ones seem to be in short supply at the moment …. so if anyone spots them, especially on offer, post where, how, what and when in the chatroom gidget !!!) – And if Elizabeth Shaw ever stops making them …… we’ll have to start hunting down another type of round chocolate to use!

This is the first thing I made with one of my Poundworld scary skeleton Hands.
Papier Mache Box
The box is paper Mache from Hobbycrafts, I bought a whole pile of them when they were reduced to 49p for an assorted pack a little while ago.
Halloween Scary Skeleton Hand Favor Box 2
I’ve coloured it with the thick end of a black promarker pen, then punched two holes on either side to thread some cord through to make “handles”

The final touch is a flat backed gem stuck on the wrist.  Soooooo creepy but might appeal to a little boy to keep his treasures in!
