Happy Saturday, everyone. Halloween will be here before you know it and I have been in the mood to create some creepy projects lately. I have created some fun zombie ornaments using the GSO Tree Ornament Matchbox which is available over at Alpha Stamps. Who says Christmas is the only holiday for displaying ornaments?
I started by poking small holes on both ends of the box with a needle tool which will allow for the addition of a hanger on the top and a dangle on the bottom.
The matchbox sleeve comes pre-scored and is easily glued together with tacky glue and set aside to dry.
For the interior of the box, I cut a section of Martha Stewart Vampire collection paper to size, scored it, and added a snip of Martha Stewart Holidays blood drip adhesive border.
The box was assembled then the background paper was glued in place.
For the exterior of the matchbox, I cut papers from the K and Company Haunted collection and chose a few zombie photo booth images from Ten Two Studios.
To frame the zombies, I painted some GSL Postage Frames in black acrylic paint.
The exterior paper was glued onto the box then the framed zombie was set in place on the front.
Dangling from the bottom of these ornaments are key tags with silver number stickers.
The tags are held in place by a tiny screw eye and a miniature skull bead. Zombie sentiments were printed onto cardstock and mounted inside the box with a bit of foam tape on the back. A length of black ribbon was added to the top for hanging.
Thanks for stopping by!
