Echo Park Paper: Tooth Fairy Easel Trinket Box

Waiting for the tooth fairy to come is almost like waiting for Christmas morning …the magic or anticipating a fairy visiting your room feels the air and makes it almost impossible to fall asleep!
Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with a fun project using the NEW Tooth Fairy Mini Collection.
Those teeny, tiny teeth are so easily lost underneath a pillow … why not create a keepsake box to place on your child’s nightstand instead?
The top of this box as an easel that flips up, displaying a tooth chart. The sparkly brads keeps the easel in place, but the panel can also fold flat for storage.
Below the chart is a drawer, … the perfect spot to place the loose tooth and maybe even a note for the tooth fairy, thanking her for her hard work. The sparkly brad is not only a fun decorative touch, but serves as the drawer pull.
After the tooth fairy comes for her visit, she can leave payment inside the drawer.
Place the Tooth Fairy box inside a coordinating storage box to keep it protected until the next time you are ready to use it!

Echo Park Paper: Haunted Bird Cage

Hello Crafty Friends! I’m sure I have probably mentioned this a million times this month, but I’m going to say it again! Halloween is my favorite holiday. And it’s also my favorite holiday to get crafty for!
This year I revamped my entryway table with new decorations and created this Haunted Birdcage, created with the Haunted collection, to go front and center!
I found the crows and glittery bats at the dollar store and the idea for this project was born!
First, I cut the birdcage shape out using my Silhouette Cameo machine using Carta Bella Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock. The birdcage cut file is from the “Three Birdcages” set by Lettering Delights. The top of the birdcage is cut from Very Scary paper. Next, I cut strips of the striped Very Scary paper to accent the cross bars of the birdcage.
I wanted the birdcage to have a bit more height, so I cut a flat square box to go underneath it. (Square Box by Lori Whitlock Design #26219 in the Silhouette Design Store). I decorated the sides of box with more Very Scary Paper.
On the floor of the birdcage, I cut a square of the orange dot Haunted Words Paper. This helps the crow to stand out a bit. I also decorated the back of the cage with this panel.
Now it’s time to decorate the outside of the birdcage! On the front I created a cluster of elements using designs from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I also added pumpkins made with the Outlined Pumpkins Die Set. I wanted my pumpkins to be solid, so I adhered them to another sheet of orange cardstock and then carefully cut around them by hand.
The flowers were cut from the orange dot Haunted Words Paper, using my Silhouette Cameo and the Dimensional Flowers Cut Set by Lettering Delights. I also added leaves and vines, cut using the Fall Branch Die Set, from the ebony felt cardstock and the Haunted Labels paper.
I added a few glittery bats from the dollar store for even more spookiness!
I had so much fun making this project! I’m actually thinking of creating another one to go with it! I’m thinking a big fly or spider inside would be a creepy touch. Hehe!
Give it a try, it’s the perfect Halloween Home Decor project!

Echo Park Paper: Halloween Shadow Box


One of my most favorite things about Halloween when I was a girl was the costume parade we held at our school every year. I loved seeing what my classmates dressed up as and enjoyed the magical and fun feeling of the day. The cute little monsters of the Halloween collection, remind me of adorable little trick-or-treaters dressed up to go from house to house collecting candy.

I decided to create decorative shadow box featuring these cute little monsters in a Halloween scene. Here is how it came together.
First, I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the layers of the shadow box. The 3D Falling Leaves Shadow Box by Marji Roy, Large (Design #99560) can be found in the Silhouette Design Store.
I used the purple chevron side of the Spooky Plaid paper as the background. The other layers were cut from Carta Bella Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock and the green pattern of the Halloween Stripes paper. The front of the shadow box is cut using the super-cute Spooky Plaid paper.
Next, I adhered the Element Stickers to the different layers of the shadow box. The tree is adhered to the background layer using foam squares. The spiderweb, banner, and ghost are adhere to the green patterned layer in front of that one.
The witch and vampire are adhere to the black layer with the spooky tree. I used foam squares to lift them up a little bit more. And then finally, I adhered the frankenstein monster to the top green layer.
The front of the shadow box is decorated with even more stickers. I placed the “31” sticker on a 1 3/4″ punched black cardstock circle, then adhere the circle, “Halloween” word, and the two pumpkin stickers with more foam squares.
To finish it off, I added a purple bow around the outer edge of the shadow box.
I wanted a fun way to display my Halloween Shadow Box, so I used my Silhouette Cameo machine again to create an easel for it. You will need two files from the Silhouette Design Store for this: Tripod Easel 1 (Design #27348) and Tripod Easel 2 (Design #27349); both by A Little Hut.
It’s going to look so cute adorning my side table! I can’t wait!

Silhouette: Halloween Party!


It’s October! It’s October! It’s October!!!

(Can you tell it is my favorite month of the year?!!)

And that means it is time to start thinking about my favorite holiday … Halloween!

Silhouette asked me to create a series of Halloween projects, and here is what I came up with … a fun Halloween party set-up!



Let’s take a closer look at each piece, shall we?!

First, we have a fun little place setting.


Silhouette Design Store Cuts:
PLATE: Circles by Hero Arts (Design #33746), 3 Decorative Circles by Lori Whitlock (Design #28278), and Trick or Treat by Sarah Bailey (Design #49258)
SPIDER CUP: Spider Drink Sleeve by Sweet Afton (Design #99936), Eyes for Spider: Spider by Jennifer Wambach (Design #32666)
CROW MUG: Crown & Jack O Lantern by Sophie Gallo (Design #148544), Hello Thought Bubble by Loni Stevens (Design #30952), Akuru Popu Font for the words

I found all of these pieces at Dollar Tree. I thought it would be fun to dress them up for a fun Halloween dinner.


I decorated the plate with vinyl. I know the vinyl won’t last forever, but it will definitely last for a party!


The glass gets a spider treatment. Isn’t he so creepy and cute?!jana-eubank-silhouette-halloween-place-setting-4

Warm up on Halloween night with a mug of hot cider decorated with this friendly and talkative crow. You could even decorate a mug and fill it with candy to give to someone for a sweet Halloween treat.

Once your table is set, place a giant candy wrapper box on the plate of each guest. Inside you can place goodies and spooky toys.


Silhouette Design Store Cuts:
CANDY WRAPPER: Scalloped Hexagon Candy Box by Nilmara Quintela (Design #95157)

I decorated the sides of the candy wrapper boxes with various patterned papers and then tied them closed with colorful ribbons.


I created the tag for each box by creating a stamp with my Silhouette Mint stamp making machine. This machine is so fun and EASY to use. And I love that it is so easy to add multiple ink colors to the stamped design.


Decorate the table with more cute dimensional boxes and treat boxes, like this pumpkin …


Silhouette Design Store Cuts:
PUMPKIN: 3D Pumpkin Gift Box by Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons (Design #101261)


… and these Haunted Houses.


Silhouette Design Store Cuts:
HAUNTED HOUSE TREAT BOX: 3D Haunted House Treat Box by Lori Whitlock (Design #93700), Nesting Pinked Circles by Sarah Hurley (Design #38854)

The “Trick or Treat” circle was also created using my Silhouette Mint machine and would look so cute on all kinds of projects!


Do you need a costume for the big day? How about this darling black cat mask?


Silhouette Design Store Cuts:
CAT MASK: Cat Mask by Tanya Batrak (Design #71834)

Finally, what’s Halloween without the glow of candles?  Create a series of lanterns to line the center of your dinner table. When you use battery-powered candles inside the lanterns you don’t have to worry about managing them, or the potential of starting a fire.

This lantern was made from a treat box cut. Instead of patterned paper placed in the spiderweb openings, I placed plastic, transparent office folders.


Silhouette Design Store Cuts:
SPIDERWEB LANTERN: Spider Web Tent Top by Samantha Walker (Design #49791), Spider by Wayne Kalama (Design #66648), 3D Rolled Rose Flower by Jamie Cripps (Design #55884), and Leafy Flourish by Hero Arts (Design #12350)

The front and side is decorated with a spooky, dimensional spider …


and beautiful roses and vines.


Are you planning a Halloween party at your home this year? Now is the time to start planning and creating. The decorations and details are what will set your party apart.


Happy Halloween!
