Spooky Tree and a Frank Box

Spooky Tree and a Frank Box using Happy Hauntings!

This month at, I am working with the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge! There are so many great cuts with this cartridge. If you like Halloween, this one is a must for you!

I created a tree with some spooky spiders as a home decor item!
The tree (fourth key from the left on the bottom row of the overlay) was cut at 11" in both the normal cut as well as the Layer 1 cut. The two cuts are made to be put together. Note: If you are hanging anything from the tree, you will want to cut it out in a heavy cardstock or chipboard. I am using chipboard. Once I had the two pieces cut, I sprayed the trees with a shimmer spray.
Next, you will want to cut spiders to hang from the tree! What is a spooky tree without spiders?! :) The spiders (with Layer1 and Shift on, 2nd key from the right on the second row) are cut at 5 1/2". You will want to cut two for each spider you want. Adhere a piece of fiber in between the two spiders as shown in the photos below:
Here is my completed project:

Cardstock: Textured (Momenta)
Pattern Paper: SEI
Die Cutting: Cricut Happy Hauntings (Provo Craft)
Adhesive: Tombow Mono Dot Adhesive
Misc Twine

I have also created a little Frank Box as a DS file which you can grab through this link:
