It's 3-D Wednesday at My Creative Time

 Welcome to another 3-D Wednesday

at My Creative Time


I love to make 3-D projects, they are my favorite!

We do not celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands, we have an alternative.
We celebrate on November 11th, it is called Sint Maarten"

The day is celebrated on the evening of 11 November 
(the day Saint Martin was buried) in the Netherlands,
where he is known as Sint-Maarten.

As soon it gets dark, children from the ages of 5 to 12
(primary school age) go door to door (mostly under parental supervision)
with hand-crafted lanterns made of paper,
singing songs such as "Sinte Sinte Maarten", to receive candy or fruit in return.


In the past, poor people would visit farms on the 11th of November
to get food for the winter.
In the 1600s,
the city of Amsterdam held boat races on the lake IJ. 
400 to 500 light craft, both rowing boats and sailboats,
took part with a vast crowd on the banks.

But because the USA does celebrate, I try to find candy,
although there is hardly any, I found this cute Ghost PEZ holder


So this is what I made

 

This is what I used
My favorite treatbox, the Tube Treatbox Die
Ghost Lollipop Holder for BOO!
(die cut it 4 times and glued them together)

Tip:
Because I wanted Ghosty to really pop out of the treatbox
he needed a platform!

Which I made out of a piece of CS
it is 5,8 cm by 5,8 cm and scored at 1 cm on all 4 sides
(converter, click here)
This is the perfect raise!


Have a great spooky day!
