Hidden Drawers of Halloween Fun - CC3 C11

Challenge 11 for Tim's Compendium of Curiosity 3 is going on over at Linda Ledbetter's blog. This challenge is on Effect Powders from p52 of Tim's book. If you don't have a copy, you can order an autographed one here

Here's my project for the Challenge:

Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring this challenge and offering a $50 gift certificate. 

I am such a fan of Halloween that a project like this one is just "drawers" of fun for me!  I used the Match Box large die of Tim's from Sizzix to make the five drawers from the TH Laboratories Paper Stash. Love that the paper is double-sided, it made a great lining for the inside of each drawer.

Powders were used on the pumpkin, happy Halloween banners, the harlequin cover for the assembled match box drawers, the spider web, and the key in the bottom drawer. The vile in the bottom drawer has loose poison (UTEE) inside. 

Two pieces were cut from the TH Sizzix Lattice Die and the effect powders were used.

A gear was added to the side of the pumpkin's head. Then the lattice was cut into pieces.
Two pieces were cut and used to form the metal-like bent arms for the pumpkin coming out the sides of the second drawer. 

Two more pieces extending from the third drawer form the legs of the pumpkin. 

There are two metal-like feet extending from the bottom of the last drawer. 

You can see part of the key extending from that drawer too. 

The little owl & pumpkin are mounted on gears and the lion is adhered under TH charm fragments and tied on with TH string. 

A shot from the side of the drawers shows the token hanging from the lattice.

There you have it - Hidden Drawers of Halloween Fun.
