Hello!I’m back with another papercrafting project for your home! This time, we are looking forward to Halloween … my favorite!
Today I am working with the brand new Bewitched collection by Echo Park Paper
. This collection features the prettiest, sweetest witch you have ever seen and I couldn’t wait to feature her in my design!
You have probably seen the wood block decor that looks like the blocks are mounted on a candlestick with a knob adorning the top … well, I came across a cut file by MyScrapChick.com
that mimics that look except every piece is made out of paper instead of wood! I couldn’t wait to give it a try!
The smaller block features the witch’s best friend, a black cat! I own a black cat myself, and so I love to add black cats in my Halloween decor as much as possible! This sweet little guy is peeking out of from a friendly Jack-O-Lantern sitting next to the jar of candy. I used flower stickers and a shiny, black satin ribbon on both blocks, tying them together visually. The sides of both blocks are also both decorated with panels of Witch Hats paper
Do you have a favorite Halloween icon you like to add to your decor? For me, it is witches, black cats, and jack-o-lanterns … and I was so happy to be able to include all three on this project!
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.

Enjoy your weekend!
As a child I was always fascinated by the details captured inside of sugar eggs and have always thought it would be fun to create one out of paper. I couldn’t wait to give it a try with the new Hello Easter collection by Echo Park Paper
I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine and a cut file by My Scrap Chick
to cut out the pieces for the egg (If you don’t own an electronic cutting machine, the purchase of the file also includes a PDF template).
Next, I placed a foam block and bright green Easter grass inside the egg. I then used the cute elements from the Chipboard Accents
to create the scene inside. The pieces are attached to skinny, flat craft sticks that I stuck into the foam. The bunny and chick look like they are having so much fun searching for their Easter eggs!
I even added a banner sticker (Element Sticker sheet
) going across the top of the inside of the egg for a party feel! You can catch a glimpse of it here in this photo.
At the bottom of the sugar egg opening, I placed the “Hello Easter” die cut (Ephemera
) matted with Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper (Hello Easter Solids Kit
). I tucked the floral chipboard piece to the left, and a few flower and carrot stickers (Element Sticker Sheet
) to the right).
For the top of the egg, I used the Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper
again to create a bow from 0.5″ x 12″ paper strips. I simply looped a variety of lengths together to form the bow and then secured them together with a brad. The tails of the bow are curled the same way you would curl curling ribbon … by using the edge of a flat tool (like a bone folder) instead of a pair of scissors.
I can’t wait to add this paper sugar egg to my Easter decor!

I’m getting so excited for Spring and all that comes with it … rain showers, sprouting grass, birds chirping, and colorful flowers! Ahhhh! I can feel the warm sunshine on my arms now!
Today I have a fun 3D project to share with you … a Rainboot filled with adorable paper flowers and pinwheels!
This project is so versatile! It’s the perfect home decor piece to brighten a window sill … or fill the boot with a treat and brighten up a friend’s day!
Are you excited for Spring? See you next time!
