Halloween Gift Box Challenge!

I decided to enter the halloween gift box challenge over at Happy Life, Crafty Wife, for a couple reasons.  One, I absolutely love these boxes created by Lori Whitlock, and two, I felt inspired after seeing some really fabulous boxes made using these files.  So, here I am sharing the box I made when I should be getting some Z's!  :)

I love the spider web on the top of the box!  To compliment the spider web, I put a piece of paper just under the top (adhered using foam squares) so the web looks 3D.  Also, I added this adorable spider from the Halloween Town SVG set by The Digi Bistro.  He is hanging by some twine (from The Twinery) and sits on the top of the box quite nicely in the grooves of the spider web.  I made him all fuzzy using flocking powder and I used different sized pearls for his eyes. Also, I wanted to add texture to the box, so I layered 3 different ribbons around the trim of the top of the box.

I hope you have enjoyed my project!  Have a crafty week!
