I used Send Me A Sign Bugg, altering her a bit for Halloween! Using Photoshop Elements 8, I erased out the solid white portion of her dress and layered a spider web design behind it (the web was a freebie from the Tiddly Paper Craft Planet group), then I added a sentiment with a little hanging spider. The font is SNF Goody and the spider is from DB Boo Ya.
I colored her with Copics, Stickled her wings, and added a few rhinestones also colored with Copics. Lastly she was cut out and mounted with foam boosters.
Down at the bottom you can see there's a handle to pull the drawer out, and here's what the front of the handle looks like:
I cut out a bone from DB Boo Ya 2 times with my Cricut and glued them together for strength. Then I fashioned a handle from a thin strip of black cardstock and glued the bone to the front.
And here's the surprise on the inside: a little ghost pops out when you open the drawer!
I have to admit that the idea wasn't mine - I came across a pop-up match box while blog surfing!
I cut out a ghost also from DB Boo Ya (love this font!) 3 times, putting 1 through the printer to get the "boo!" on the bottom (also using SNF Goody), then glued all 3 together. Since it's going to be repeatedly shoved into the box, I wanted it to be really strong. Next I cut a strip of acetate 5" x .5" and scored it every half inch. I accordian folded it to make the pop-up mechanism and glued it into the box bottom and to the back of the ghost.
The whole thing was designed in Make the Cut. I also designed the divider to hold the 2 pieces of candy away from the pop-up portion.
