I love fall, and the vibrant colors of autumn are blooming here in central Michigan! I already have the house decorated for Halloween but also wanted to bring a few disposable decorations to my office. I recently started using SCAL 4 instead of MTC and this was a perfect project to exercise my new knowledge. I could not find an SCAL 4 keyboard shortcut list so I made one up. You can download it here. If you know of any shortcuts that I missed, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get it updated.
I used the spider and web from the library in SCAL. Then all I had to do was create a shadow box and weld (ALT + U) the web to it.
Halloween Light Box:
I used WorldWin CutMates Licorice card stock. This is still THE BEST brand of card stock to cut, hand down! If I was going to keep these boxes for future use I would probably make them with WorldWin ColorMates Smooth & Silky since it is a much thicker material and is also a dream to cut.
No adhesive is necessary for the box, although they may last longer with a little bit on the flaps. The pop dot is white which makes the eyes on the spider appear white.
Settings (Maxx Air):
- f = 42
- v = 300
- p = 1
- Open design file in SCAL 4.
- Add additional elements as desired.
- Hide cut layer and emboss fold lines.
- View cut layer, hide emboss layer and cut out the box.
- Fold at crease lines and assemble.
- Place light inside.
- Use a pop dot to adhere the spider or other embellishment.
