A Pair of Skeleton ATC Shrine Boxes

Huzzah! More Halloween!
Lora here creating more fun Halloween-y stuff for the awesomeness that is Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. Here are my two slightly creepy but fun Halloween Skeleton ATC Shrine Boxes.
Super fun, easy to make and great to display!
To create some depth, I stacked images from G45's Rare Oddities Collection. You can see an example of this in the image below.....
I started out by gluing the Shrine together, painting the sides (inside and out) black and cutting out the images I wanted to use, all from the 8x8 pad.
The background paper and the paper I used on the back side of the shrine is my favorite Bo Bunny Vintage Double Dot paper in Citrus (inside) and Green (outside back). Glue those in first.
I cut four pieces of chipboard 1/2 inches wide, painted them black and glued them to the sides of the shrine to support the 'frame' that will be the middle layer...you can see the frame in the above photo.

I glue the frame onto the supports.
After that dried, I then glued in the skeleton, which has four widths of chipboard glued to its back to bring it up off of the background paper.
It would seem simpler to glue the skeleton in and then the frame, but I found that it's best to do the frame first and then center the interior piece to the frame, rather than the other way around.
I glued the outside border paper to the edge of the shrine, added some Dresden trim (which you can get HERE) and a few extra details like some brass findings, a few discreet sparklies and little white dots.
Don't forget to decorate the bag and sign your work!
