Be sure to continue all the way through.
You’ll have some lovely ideas for cards and projects for all things Halloween and fun!
So let’s jump right in.
I used an 8″ by 10 1/2″ piece of Basic Gray card stock which is great because you will not have much waste.
This is an idea from the Holiday Catalog, but this is a very well loved and much used (at least by me) box template.
Score on the 8″ side at 2″ and 6″
Score on the 10 1/2″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″ and 10″
You will trim your template down to look like this:
You can add strips of DSP to decorate it, they should measure 1 7/8″ by 3 7/8″
I also used a scrap piece of Gold Foil, scored it down the middle and trimmed into thin strips for the ” metal” to hold the chest together.
You can use Tear and Tape to secure your box or a Cropadile and brads like I did in the video. Stampin’ Up! use to carry the Cropadile however I got mine from Amazon and there is an affiliate link above in blue. I secured the holes with Brads in Gold but you could make yours any color.
I created the card as a fun fold . I used a piece of Basic Gray cut at 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″.
Score on the 8 1/2″ side at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″
I added a few strips of Monster Bash DSP to make it spooky. They measure 2″ by 5 1/4″
I closed it with a belly band of Basic Black. I used a 3/4″ strip and wrapped it around the cards so it wouldn’t be too tight and secured the back with Snail Adhesive or the like
I cut the Wicked die from Basic Black two times and once in Sparkle Glimmer paper. I added some Highland Heather and Mango Melody ink refills with an aqua painter to jazz it up. Then adhered the two black layers together and finally the glimmer paper layer just slightly off center for a spooky look.
There are also some really spooky Enamel Shapes if you want to add them to the card or “Toy Box”.
Until next time,
