Halloween Treat Box by Jess

Posted on October 01 2018

Hello friends!

Happy October!! It's Jess here with my first project of the month.  Since it's October, I felt it was time to bring on the Halloween projects!  I kept my Halloween treat box more "cutesy" than scary, so I hope I can inspire some fun craft projects for you!

Halloween Treat Box using Rinea Foiled Paper

For this project, I used the Haunted Variety Pack.   With Halloween parties coming up at school, I thought a treat box would fit the bill! I had this Matchbox Die sitting in my stash (it's an old Stampin' Up! one) and I was dying to use it - so it was a perfect win-win!

I love when you have dies that make projects quick and easy! I did use a rubber plate to ensure that the score lines showed up as well as the cut lines - it worked perfectly with the Rinea Foiled Papers!  The scoring was very easy! I just followed the directions on the die box and fold everything up!  I used my Big Shot to cut the foiled paper. For the box, I used the Glossy Marigold Orange/Gold Foiled paper. 

   

Of course, I needed to decorate the box! Before I made this box, I was trying to create spider legs by curling 1/2" strips of Starstruck Ebony Black foiled paper around a pencil. The spider didn't turn out, but the coils became the PERFECT topper for the box!

I used a Tonic Studios Halloween die to cut some spiders and webs from Glossy Ebony Black/Gold foiled paper (I just used the gold side for the webs) and glued them. Inside the matchbox is some shredded scrap foiled papers - kind of like Easter basket stuffing - so I can hide a little treat inside!


See you next time!

Jess
