look out for the orange spider - Sweet Stampin challenge 49-Anything but a card

Good morning everyone and don't worry the orange spider is on my Anything but a card creation for my fourth week of Guesting at the Sweet Stampin challenge, I hope your all going to give it a go as I cant wait to see what you make for it...wow the weeks are just flying by aren't they I cant believe its this close to Christmas already where has this year gone to...I decided to make I think its called a sour cream carton, really easy to make, its really just a tube sealed at opposite sides of each end then ribbled (lol I love that word ribbled) to seal it...mines full of spiders and bats and sweets...I used this fabulous image from Mo's Digital Pencil Mummy image coloured with Distress inks as a tag, the webbed paper is from Graphic45, I also used a bandage as wrapping and finished with an orange organza bow and a few spiders and a bat on the side, I saw the fabulous Laura use them and thought it was brilliant...I'm entering this for the Spoon full of Sugar Boo challenge, Craftalicious Anything goes challenge, Fab 'n' Funky Things that go bump in the night Challenge and the Creative Inspirations Spooky challenge

I'm never sure how to photograph anything that's an odd shape, any tips anyone...are you up to anything exciting today if you are go on make me jealous lol, I'm going shopping for some shelves for my craft room in the hope of keeping it tidy, there's some hope of that like...I hope you like my carton and have a fantastic day whatever your up to and don't forget to hop on over to Sweet Stampin to see what fantastic creations the DT came up with

Hi Mina,
What a fabulous creation. I love the colours and the cute image. Brilliant work.
William ( a bit of a Maths nut) tells me this shape is called a Tetrahedron. Apparantly it is populay for juice cartons because it packs so tightly. (Useless information?)
