My latest DT project for Country Craft Creations was another fun Halloween inspired piece. This playful tombstone has a few fun aspects hidden inside and outside.
I started out by making 2 different boxes. One for the base and one that would sit on top. Using regular 12x12 black card stock, I measured, scored and cut out the unnecessary areas of the paper to assemble my boxes.
Next, I traced half of the top of a plastic lid to get the round curve I needed for the top piece of the tombstone. I made two of these and attached them together with one strip of card stock. Then, I cut a hole in the base piece and added the 3 pieces of twine.
Once the twine was secured, I secured the boxes together with Scortape. Prior to adding any paper to the piece I carefully planned and secured all of the magnets I would use in this project I used 10 total Basic Grey small and large magnets. I wanted to ensure they were hidden but still effective. I also laid out the items I would glue to the twine.
Now that I had all the main items in place, I started attaching and embellishing. I used a lot of the awesome cut apart pieces that were in this paper collection. I was able to use them throughout the project without having to purchase a bunch of additional pieces.
I hope you enjoyed the additional information on this project. I really love the versatility of this paper. Make sure to swing by Country Craft Creations for some great deals on this paper collection as well as magnets and Scortape. www.facebook.com/tammyscountrycraftcreations
