Creations by AR - Sept Release - Simply Scrumptious Shop


Wait until you see the wonderful little treat box Adela has created over at Creations by AR being released today!  It's called Simply Scrumptious Shop and some of the Design Team has samples to inspire you today!

I decided to make mine a spooky Halloween shop!  Using some fun designer and Core-dinations papers.  I've got lots of pictures to show you so I'll keep the 'chatter' to a minimum!  You can see I have a spooky skull looking out of the shop window to entice little children to 'come inside!"  The bat on the roof is an older Sizzix Die.
I adhered my shutters a little akimbo since we all know Haunted Shops are in disrepair!  And we have some black ferns growing in the window box - no doubt to make some lovely poisonous potions with!
Here are views of the two sides and back of the shop -  I used stamps from Midnight Feast by Waltzingmouse.

The Halloween fence is a Martha Stewart Punch that I adhered around the shop using foam dots.  I added an additional awning roof on the back of mine to make it look more ominous in the sanded black!

To open the box to get to the treats inside (if you dare!!) - you simply lift the roof off! (the two chimney pieces fit through a slot in the roof)
and the front of the shop opens up!  I lined the inside of my door and the inside walls of the shop with additional pieces of patterned paper since my paper was white on the back.  It finished it off nicely and also added a little strength to the box.
There are two options for 'shelving' inside the shop -  you can have up to 5 shelves to place a cookie or candy on each shelf -  or a base with a hole in it to place a treat inside - I used the base with the hole in it.
and I placed a 'ghoulish' treat inside the hole!   A paper nut cup full of Gummy Vampires!  I adhered black pom pom ribbon around the cup - filled it with the candy, wrapped in cellophane and placed the cup  in a black net bag that I had from last years' Halloween candy purchase of some chocolate eyeballs!  (Never throw anything away right?!)  I tied the package closed with some wrinkled seam tape running it through the eyes of Mr. Skull and tying it in a bow.
All of Adela's templates come in 3 formats - PDF to print and hand cut, SVG and DXF to use with cutting machines. I used the SVG files with my Silhouette Cameo.  The Simply Scrumptious Shop measures 2.75" x 2.75" x 6.25"
