Adorable Frankie Box!

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by!
Today's project is another we did at my Halloween Stamp camp.  It is totally cased from Gretchen Barron so the credit goes to her!  It uses the Top Note and Fancy favor Box Dies and has absolutely no stamping!


  1. Start by die cutting one Fancy Favor Box (I used Going Gray because I was out of Old Olive in 12x12 size) and 2 Old Olive Top Notes and half of a Basic Black Top Note.
  2. Put your box together without creasing the side gussets.  Trim about 1/4" off the end of your Old Olive Top Note pieces and adhere to front and back of box after sponging the edges with Old Olive ink.
  3. Take your Basic Black Top Note Piece and give it a hair cut just using scissors.  Adhere to Frankie's head.
  4. Take some scrap Old Olive card stock and punch about 3/4 of a Round Tab Punch (nose)and one 1" Circle.  Sponge the edges again with Old Olive ink and cut the 1" Circle in half for the eye lids.
  5. Take scrap Whisper White card stock and punch two 1" circles and take scrap Basic Black and punch two 3/4" Circles (eyes).  Adhere together and add a little White Gel Pen to highlight.  Add to face with nose hiding underneath.
  6. Using your Stampin' Write marker in Basic Black add stitches and mouth.  Add a 1/2" strip of basic Balck for the handle using brads to hold it on.  I added some candy corn in a cello bag with the Old Olive Wide ribbon but you could put just about anything!
