My friend Sharul came over and we made some fun Halloween pillow boxes using Stampin' Up! Pillow Box die $20. Batty For You stamp is a set of 8 circular stamps for $24. Bat punch is retired Stampin' Up! bought on sale for $10. Spooky skull is a rub-on, also retired and bought on sale for $5 for 2 full sheets, one white and one black.The silver bats are punched from the new glimmer paper ($2.50/sheet) from Stampin' Up! They are a bit thinner than AC Cardstock glitter paper ($2/sheet) from A.C. Moore. Stampin' Up! glimmer paper also works with my Northern Frost extended sizzlits die (snowflakes), which I am really excited about. Paper side should face the die blades instead of the glitter side. It takes a long time to individually apply glitter to snowflakes after they have been cut out. I am going to remake my snowflake cards from last year using the silver glimmer paper. The AC Cardstock glitter paper does not work with the thinner die, but large punches do cut the paper (but not small punches). AC Cardstock glitter paper is available in more colors. The white bat is punched from this paper.
