Fa-Boo-Lous Guest Designer

Woo hoo! I am so excited to be a guest designer for the Fa-Boo-Lous Halloween Inspiration Week! We love Halloween in our house and look forward  to the entire month of October to celebrate. 
I created a fun countdown which starts today at 4 weeks away.

Each treat holder counts down the weeks and also did a holder for the day before and Halloween day.
I used the tombstone box from SVG Cuts latest kit ~ Gimme Candy Boxes SVG Kit.
smalltombstone.svg is cut to 9.327" wide x 4.952" high
insertfortombstone.svg is cut to 9.336" wide x 3.471" high

I also used the Spooky Cuties SVG Collection to accent the treat holders. 
All cut on my Sizzix eclips.


I removed the glass from a 12x12 Shadow box frame and once the treat holders were assembled I hot glued them in. 
I designed the countdown dates in Adobe Illustrator and used the 
Epiphany Crafts Tool to create them. 

Here’s a look at each countdown holder and what I placed inside:
