Get Funky! Challenge 3 - Halloween

It's the first of October so it means another Get Funky! Challenge! Thank you to all who entered my Two Little Boys Challenge in September - there were some great entries! To find out who I picked as the winner go to Get Funky!

This month it is Allison's turn to set the challenge and she loves Halloween, so the theme this month is:


Rules are simple - simply use one Funky Hand product on your creation to be in with a chance of winning a very generous £20 gift voucher to spend on Funky Hand products! You have the whole of October to enter!

The Design Team have made some wonderfully spooky creations - pop over to Get Funky to have a look!

For my sample, I've made a gift box. The template was a free download from Papercraft Inspirations (this is the small box and it prints out over two sheets of A4). I've used papers from It's Funky Too - and I've printed a different pattern on both sides.

The outside of the box has been decorated with various die cuts - Sizzix ghosts, Round-a-Bout alphabet set and a Sizzlit tombstone. Edges have been inked in either silver or black ink for a bit more spookiness.

I've attached the ghosts to the box with strips of acetate so they jump out!

The ribbon is from my stash and just the perfect shade of orange too! The little black bats are confetti, and I'm sure I bought it from the pound shop a few years ago. Or probably Tescos in the post Halloween sale!

And inside the box -

I've filled it with spooky pumpkins and ghoulish eyes - a net of each £1 from, yes, the pound shop!! They make the box quite heavy, so I think I'm going to have to eat a few.....!!
  • Papers: It's Funky Too
  • Dies: Sizzlit - Tombstone, Sizzix Yellow die - Ghosts, Sizzix alphabet - Round-a-Bout

Good luck with the October challenge and remember to link the actual post of your blog in your comment on Get Funky - this makes it a lot easier for the Design Team to visit you and to leave you a comment. Can't wait to see what you create!
