First of all, a HUGE, WARM THANK YOU!!! to everyone for celebrating the American Crafts design team along with me! I received so many warm wishes on Facebook, Instagram, and my blog … it meant so much to me and made a busy week that much sweeter! I didn’t have the chance to thank each one of you with a response … but please know that you are a bright spot in my life! You are the BEST!!!
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut out milk carton treat boxes from American Crafts Black Textured cardstock, and then had fun decorating them with the 6×6 papers and stickers from the BOOtiful Night collection.
The sketchy feel of the artwork in this collection is a lot of fun, and I completely adore the holographic foil accents on some of the pieces. It’s really different! Here is a closer look!
The holographic foil almost reminds me of the fun glow-in-the-dark novelty toys you see around Halloween with it’s blue/green iridescence. So cool!
Here is a closer look at each individual box.
The cut file I used for these boxes is the “Milk Carton Favor Box with Handle” by Lori Whitlock (Design #138116 in the Silhouette Design Store). The finished box measures 4.75″ tall, 2.5″ wide, and 2.5″ deep … not too small and not too big. They are the perfect size for filling with a couple of large scoops of your Halloween candy.
I’m going to give these to each of my four kids, but I think they would be the perfect size for giving a little treat to friends or co-workers. Wouldn’t it be delightful to find one waiting for you on your desk? 🙂
I wanted each box to be unique, so I used a variety of 6×6 papers and stickers from the collection. The headstone and tag on this box were cut from one of the cut apart sheets of the 6×6 paper pad. I then added the puffy jack-o-lantern stickers and a Halloween wood button for dimension.
It’s hard to tell from this photo, but the skeleton is printed with the holographic foil. He’s so cute with that little bow around his neck! I cut a section from a silver, spiderweb doily to place behind the BOO sticker. Doesn’t the wood button at the bottom look like a spooky eyeball?! Haha! Love it!
This box featured a scary witch. She reminds me of the witch from The Wizard of Oz with her green face! I thought the black cat Halloween adhesive badge at the top of the box would make a perfect friend for her!
This black cat is on the prowl in the graveyard on this box. I cut the headstone from a paper in the 6×6 paper pad again on this box. I also added another section of the silver spiderweb doily behind the sentiment sticker and Halloween spider badge.
I can’t wait to fill these up with some goodies! I think they turned out so cute!
I have a few more projects I created with this collection that I will be sharing in the coming days, so be sure to check back. In the meantime, be sure to pop into the American Crafts blog all this week to see what the other design team members have been creating with this fun collection!
