Black Cat Favor Box

Hi – This little black cat didn’t turn out to be very fierce looking for Halloween, did he?! newly imported 904

He’s kinda cute though… He is made from the scallop circles #2 die.  I die cut the larger scallop circle and then turned it just a bit and ran it through again to get the pointier look to the scallops.  The ears are the 5 point star die, also cut in Basic Black cardstock.  If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see the ears are folded in to give them a little dimension.  His face is all punches – ¾” circle and ½” circle for the eyes, small oval punch for the nose and inside of the ears and his mouth is also the small scallop oval using the negative piece after the oval is cut (leave a comment if that doesn’t make sense and you want a better explanation!).  I used Going Gray and Basic Gray for those parts.  The favor box die is cut from the Cast-a-Spell DSP and the tag is from the Batty for You stamp set. Peeking out from the box is a cello bag of candy corn tied up with black gingham ribbon and Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon.  The tag is hanging from the box handle with twine.

Hope you like it – Thanks for stopping by -

Thanks for sharing the instructions for your cat face. Fierce or not, it's just as cute as can be.
