I was having so much fun putting together the treat holders in this kit and I just had to add to them the alternative Frankenstein pictured in the instructions. I posted the video to You Tube if you would like to follow along on how I put him together. I host a zoom paper pumpkin every month for my subscribers and we just have so much fun.

Wedding Shadow Box Gift was a fun distraction during my step daughter’s wedding. My niece is getting married next month and I wanted to give her a gift she’ll be able to display in her new home. 

There are so many stamps involved in this I will have to come back and update this for the instructions.
