Stamps-Ink-Paper Dracula


This devishly handsome fellow is dying to accompany you this Halloween Eve... all you will need is a little black card stock and "Cast-A-Spell" DSP! He will hold trick-or-treating candy, make fantastic Halloween party favors, and even spook up your Halloween decor. But, watch out! He bites. :)

When Shelli's creative challenge was to use only "Stamps-ink-paper" I knew my favorite Japanese art, origami, would come in handy! Helpful Hint: I found a fantastic tutorial on creating Count Dracula's face HERE.

His dashingly scary facial features were all created using punches:
Eyebrows: Photo corners punch
Eyes: 3/4" circle punch (cut in half)
Nose: Heart-to-heart punch (cut in half and the top snipped off)
Mouth: Wide Oval punch
Teeth: Small Star punch (points trimmed off and used as fangs, I used the real red marker to add some blood!)

UPDATE: One of my reader's asked about how I made the box Dracula is attached to, so I made a template! Check it out:

Too cute...though I think he'd rather be "scary!"

What template did you use to make the box/basket the cute dracula is attached to?

Hi Lucy! Thanks for stopping by! I actually didn't use a template...but maybe I can create one...I haven't ever made a template, but I'll give it a go! :)

Happy Stampin'!
