Grim ATC Reliquaries

I feel like I've missed out on Halloween for the past couple of years. I've skipped right past it, diving head first into holiday making. Not this year. This year I'm determined to fully enjoy the haunting season.

Today I'm showing off these grim chipboard reliquaries.

I've used these Miniature Reliquaries for the base, which are just about ATC sized, measuring around 2.5" x 3.5" (give or take a smidge).

To embellish, Latin Stone Scrapbook Paper is used to cover the front and back of the pieces.

The images used are from the Skeleton Slide Mailers Collage Sheet and Skull & Bones Collage Sheet .

I've added loads of black Dresden snippets, and some teeny weeny 'crystals', dots normally used for decorating finger nails.

A length of seam binding is tied into wee bows to add one final touch.

So what about you? Anything spooky on your work table?

P.S. If you're interested in making these little bits, you might want to consider the swap that AlpahStamps is currently hosting.
