Sparkly Bat Pink Luminere

You may be asking yourself why would I make a Halloween project with pink.......well I was on Mary Fish's website the other day and she had a beautiful pink Halloween card uploaded.  I read Mary's post and she said she had made a pink Halloween card because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I thought what a cool idea.  That idea got my "pink" creative juices flowing.  Here is my pink Halloween project.  Thanks Mary for the inspiration.  If you frequent SCS often you will have noticed that they had a luminere tutorial on their home page this week.  I clicked on the link to see how to make them and I loved that project.  Once you get one done and the flow of how they are put together they are very easy to make.  I think I am going to make a bunch of these for the office support ladies that I work with.  Should I keep the pink theme going?  What do you think?  I am definetly going to show the members of my 2011 Stampin' Technique & 3-D Project Club how to make these.

Step by Step instructions on making a pink luminere
1. cut 4 Pretty in Pink card stock squares measuring 4-1/4" x 4-1/4"
2. score all 4 Pretty in Pink squares at the 1/4" mark on all 4 sides of each square
3. cut off one of the 1/4" score lines on each of the 4 Pretty in Pink squares
4. grab your circle scissors plus, glass mat and some masking tape.  Before making the circle I always do a trial run of where I want the circle without the cutting blade in.  Position one of your Pretty in Pink card stock squares in the middle of your glass mat.  Tape all 4 sides down with masking tape of Dotto (Removable Adhesive).
5. Turn the knob on the Circle Scissors Plus so that you have a 2-1/2" circle.  Before adding the cutting blade in position it in the middle over to of your taped down Pretty in Pink card stock square.  Turn the wheel around to make sure that your circle will be somewhat centered in the Pretty in Pink card stock square.  Once you feel your circle is centered, place the cutting blade in place and turn to cut your circle.  Keep your Pretty in Pink card stock cut-out circle to use later on another project.  Repeat the above step on all 4 Pretty in Pink card stock squares.
6. Next you are going to need some 3" x 3" White Vellum Paper squares.  You will need 4 of them.
7. Take a Halloween stamp set and ink up whichever images you want with Basic Black Classic Ink and stamp the image where ever you want on the 3" x 3" White Vellum Paper.  I used the Bat image from the From the Crypt stamp set along with the bunch of bats image from the Wicked Cool stamp set.
8. Set aside to dry.  I find Classic Ink when stamped on White Vellum Paper takes a little longer to dry than card stock.
9. You can now fold down all of the 1/4" score lines on the all of the Pretty in Pink card stock squares.
10. The Basic Black Classic Ink that was stamped on the White Vellum Paper should be dry now.  Adhere each White Vellum Paper square to the inside of your Pretty in Pink squares making sure the cut off score line is at the top.
11. Once you have finished adhering the White Vellum Paper to your Pretty in Pink square we are going to adhere each Pretty in Pink square together.  With the fronts facing down fold down one of the side 1/4" score lines on the Pretty in Pink squares (you want it to fold toward the center of the square) and apply adhesive to it.  Take another Pretty in Pink square with the 1/4" score line folded towards the centre of the square and place it over top of the score line with adhesive on it.  You are going to repeat this step until you have all of the sides joined.  Once all of the side are joined apply adhesive on the outter 1/4" score line and line it up with the other outter side 1/4" line.  You should now have a box.
12. Cut a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock measuring 3-1/4" x 3-1/4".  This is your bottom piece.  Adhere to the bottom of your box.
13. Punch out 2 pieces of Basic Black card stock using the Bitty Bat Punch.  Apply VersaMark to each one then Heat & Stick Powder and heat.  Once the Heat & Stick Powder is gooey and clear apply some Black Fine Galaxy Glitter on top.  Heat again.  Place a Stampin' Dimensional on the back of each bat and position it at the top of one of the circles.  I did this on 2 sides only.
14. Place a battery-operated tea light inside and VOILA you have your very own pink Halloween Luminere.

If you need a video to watch I think SCS has one on their site under the Luminere Tutorials
