Halloween Luminaries!

When looking for a project for the retirement center where I share craft projects, I found this cute little luminarie project made from the Sizzix Fancy Favor Box.  It was an easy project " is so simple"!
I cut out the box with the Fancy Favor Box die cut.  Punched holes in front and back with the 1 3/4" circle punch. Ran the box through my Sizzix Big Shot with the Spider Web embossing folder.   Cut 2 pieces of velum 2" square and stamped images from the Wicked Cool stamp set with Stazon.    Adhered velum in windows with glue stick.    Assembled box & adhered sides & bottom with Sticky Strip.  Stamped image on whisper white & punched out with Lg. Oval punch, layered over Scallop Oval punch and adhered on front of box.  Let's see, what is left...yes a pretty black satin bow.  Then made a handle with basic black cardstock, 3/4" wide and adhered on sides of box (bag) with brads.  I also used my Tasteful Trim die cut for the accent accross the bottom of the bag.
And, finishing touch, a battery operated tea light inside!
Love this about trying one yourself.  It could be re-created for any theme, maybe Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by today!
