Dracula Edwin Top Hat Lantern - Bling at Tilda's Town

Happy Friday Everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at Tilda's Town Challenge.
This week's theme is an easy one ~ Bling.

Since my son is now a little too old to go trick-or-treat,
I made a top hat lantern/treat box for him instead.

The following stamps and dies I used are available at Tilda's Town:

I colored Dracula Edwin and Owl with Distress Ink pads.

I die cut spiderwebs and boarder using glitter paper and added some
clear rhinestones here and there for additional sparkles.

The crow is part of the Memory Box DP.
I cut around it to make it part of the lantern aperture.
The opening is at the top. I put a green battery-operated tea-light
in the lantern to give it a spookier feeling :^).

When I made a top hat lantern/treat box in September, here,
I promised to provide a template later.
Now I have added the templates on my Tutorial page.
Feel free to use them and make a top hat lantern for yourself.
