One of my favorite things about cut files is that you can change them up to match the season or occasion you are working on. For today’s project, I’m sharing a Halloween Haunted House made up as a beautiful Christmas house!
I used the Maple Manor cut file by SVGCuts.com to create this project. I LOVE the cut files by this company! I was on their design team several years ago, and enjoyed my time there so much! (Mary, if you ever put together a design team again … COUNT ME IN! *wink*)
Mary Bonk, owner and designer of SVGCuts.com, is a paper wizard! Her cut files are sturdy, detailed, and EASY to put together. All you need to do is cut out the pieces, and then follow the videos showing you how to assemble each project.
I normally use lots of patterned paper in my projects, but this time I decided to use all cardstock. I added pattern and dimension to the roof and sides of the house using embossing folders instead.
I wanted my house to have a wintry feel, so I added glue in several places, and then sprinkled it with glitter to appear as though there is snow on the roof.
I had a lot of fun with all of the details on this house. I used my Silhouette Cameo to create Christmas lights for the roofline, and a dimensional wreath and greenery for holiday decorations.
I used pine tree metal dies to create the Christmas trees on the front porch, and even added a cork “WELCOME” mat in front of the door.

Eeeek! So CUTE! I can’t wait to get mine!!!!
Wouldn’t these be fun to make this weekend!
Thanks for coming by! See you again soon!
Happy weekend! Are you playing in your craft room today?
I’m back with another project using the Die Cuts with a View Premium Halloween Spirit paper pad that will be hitting the shelves this season.
Treats aren’t just for the kids at Halloween … I mean, why should they have all the fun, right?! Oh, you could definitely make these for the kids, but I think I will be giving them out to a few of my friends!
These treat boxes open by lifting the top of the tombstone off. Inside I placed homestyle caramels in a pretty rows!
Let’s take a closer look at each box! This one features a cut owl perched on the top of the the greeting cut-apart. A glimmering gold spiderweb sticker adds spook-night shine!
The foiled accents of the paper and stickers from this paper pad were a bit tricky to capture with my camera, but they make these projects Oh, So Special! Both the “Boo” and the “Happy Halloween” are shiny gold foil on the box below.
This cat is pulling his scariest face to try and keep you away from this candy haul. The ghost may be frightened, but don’t you run away … there are caramels waiting for you inside! Ha!
The hardest part about making these cute treat boxes is going to be giving them away! They look just as cute as a Halloween decoration sitting all together in a row.
