Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween – Week 11
Wow! We’re nearly at the end of this years’ Halloween series, I hope you’ve enjoyed the ideas I’ve shared with you so far, I know I’ve had great fun coming up with them 🙂
Today I have a sweet little box that only measures 2″ x 2″ x 1-1/2″ to share with you. I designed it to fit some cute little smartie filled pumpkins that I found at the Reject Shop, but you could easily fill them up with all sorts of other goodies instead.
The feature of my little boxes are the smiling jack o’ lanterns from Seasonal Chums. I’m so glad I caved and bought this bundle, it’s become one of my favourites and I still have the Christmas images to use after Halloween has passed 🙂
I coloured the pumpkins using Stampin’ Write Markers on one and the *new* Stampin’ Blends Markers on the other (the Rich Razzleberry one). I really liked how I was able to get more variation in the colours with the blends and while I’m still a beginner and my colouring is, shall we say, less than perfect 😉 I can see I’m going to enjoy this new colouring option and am looking forward to improving my skills.
I created a rosette from a 1″ x 12″ piece of Spooky Night DSP for my pumpkins to sit on and a simple flagged sentiment and Black Metallic Thread finished off the top of my boxes.
The *new* Stampin’ Blends Markers will be available to purchase from November 1, 2017,
only a couple of weeks away!
The base of my boxes were made from Rich Razzleberry and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. A simple band of Spooky Night DSP, 1-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ was the only decoration I added and a thumb notch for easy opening.
I’ve added some extra photos to show you the finished size a little better – the close-ups make them look huge and the cute little goodie that inspired their creation if you’d like to find some for your Halloween celebrations 🙂
I’ve made a simple visual tutorial of how to make this box if you’d like to save it for future reference. It’s a fairly basic box pattern, there’s just a couple of partial score lines to take some extra care with – I scored a little too far a few times myself 🙂
I hope you liked my project today, these are soooo cute in person and I think might be the perfect little something for my son to give his teachers for Halloween.
