Actually, I can easily see how this tealight house can be elegant, too, but it is October and I had this giant bag of spiders...
Run, Carl, run!!!
To accent the windows, I used pre-cut frames but cut a rectangle of cardboard to transform the center window into a door. I also cut a little cardboard frame for the upper right and matching rear windows. I stamped a spider, webs, and a skull onto some vellum, then glued them inside the house. Like Kristin, I added a tree by poking a hole in the base and glued in the tree.
Here's the spider house with the tealight inside, and I think it is a bit scarier since Carl can't really see exactly what he's running from.
When the Spider House was finished, I realized I had all of this awesome Nightfall paper left over, so I made a book using an ATC Ticket Journal and a House Shaped ATC Frame Set (because houses are cool). The book is accordion style, so it opens out to reveal six interactive pages. Warning! There are a scary amount of photos of this book!
Here are the inside "front" pages, followed by the back.
This is my favorite page. I used a stamp from the Mr. Bones stamp set to create a dapper skellie with eyes that change. There is a dial on the bottom of the page that rotates, changing the eyes.
There are three sets of different eyes and when you stop part-way, you can give Mr. Bones a single peeper. Fun! There's a tutorial right here for you to make your own. (thanks for helping me get that together, Leslie)
This page has a pumpkin pocket with a surprise inside.
Oooh, it's a kitty!
But wait, there's more! You rotate the base of the kitty and...
Holy crow, it's a witch!
And she transfigures back into a cat! I will not mention how long this entertains me because it is probably embarrassing.
The back side:
This page has a slider at the top that changes the image in the center.
WHEW! For such a tiny book it sure did have lots of things going on. Finally, the front again because that's just funny.
