Halloween in Wonderland



Have you seen this wonderful paper by Graphic's 45 called Halloween in Wonderland? It's double sided which makes it perfect for my Cricut-cut explosion box. There are a lot of pages to embellish in these things and I tried to do something different for each one. The lid has vintage chess pieces on it and two borders from Martha Stewart are used over the G 45 paper. Inside I stood two tags together like a house of cards in the center and underneath is a circle of bling. (If you remember, chess and cards play a large role in the Alice in Wonderland story.) The main characters are featured on the first layer of pages and there are so many other tags, techniques, pockets, etc used on all the other pages. I think this will be a super decoration for the fall season and I hope you'll give this paper a try. If you have any questions about any of the items used or the pages, just drop me a line.

Wow Mary, you've been very busy the last few days ;-)
Love all you beautifull projects. It must have been quite a lot of work to make them.

And I'm glad you loved my post about Christianity. It's so true isn't it?

This is wonderful. It looks like it would take ages especially for someone like me. You did a great job and who doesn't like Alice and her gang.

Mary you mentioned that this was cut on the cricut. Which cartridge and at what size was this box cut? This project is amazing. Your stuff is so fantastic. I can picture someone in your family looking at this project in 30 years and adoring what a vintage treasure it has become.
