More Swap Items

I just finished a swap on Craftster with cackle, who is an amazing artist. She is as fond of Halloween type items as I am. Here are two of the things I sent her:

1. A smarmy smiling cat. This is a painted paper mache ball from Michaels, with polymer clay ears. The box is also from Michaels. All the paper is from Graphic 45. I never get tired of making these cats!

and
2. A little witch collage. I love this so much, mostly because of the vintage handmade box she's in. The box came from the Field Museum in Chicago, and used to contain a fish specimen (not to worry; it's not stinky!) I loved all the writing, which was originally on the bottom of the box, so I took apart the bottom and flipped it around. I added the spider web charm and the image of the little witch (both from Alpha Stamps), and then some bottles filled with glitter and an old watch part. It's simple, but I really like how it turned out.
