Day 26 - Is it chilly in here?

Hi and welcome to everyone from the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop!  If you want to see more of the awesomeness that this blog hop has to offer, the you can find the blog roll on the left in my sidebar.

This is by far the weirdest thing I've ever made!  And yes, I've made heads in jars, severed finger drinks, and I'm working on bags of pumpkin poop - but this is just plain weird.

I used a matchbox, not a small one though, this box is for BBQ matches.  Then I inked it up and covered it in some Bazzill cardstock.  I made a black rosette and then added a scrap of green/grey ribbon.  On top I glued a skeleton's head.  Since he looked a little clowny I added a hat.  He also has bronze coloured gems in his eye sockets.  I placed some cotton wool in the box drawer and put the skeleton's body inside.  His harms and legs were glued to the outside.  I added the Trick or Treat song to the outside and inside of the box.  I thought that it would be funny since he has no stomach to eat!  Then I added some tiny images of a jar or eyeballs and a cupcake that I got from Meljen's Designs.  They are coloured with Copics and glossed.
I inked the edges of each of the word strips.  Oh and I added a bead to the drawer for a handle.  The main box also has a bead on each corner so it sits up off the floor.
Here's one creepy cupcake, there's a whole set of them at MelJen's Designs - you can't stop at one!
And just for kicks (bahahaha I'm hilarious!) I added the tiniest toe tag ever, to Mr Skelly's toe..

Thanks for visiting me today :)

Love the matchbox and I am not to sure this would qualify as weird in my world but I love it. The toe tag is the best ever and I have used a few

This is just super awesome! All the little details are simply perfect. And the fact that he's a clown--well, that makes it even creepier in my book! (My fear of clowns is well-documented...)
