Tombstone Treat Bags for Halloween

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!

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.

Echo Park Paper: Autumn Gift Basket

Fall paper collections always put me in the mood for homebaked treats and connecting with neighbors. Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with an apple barrel basket, created with the new Celebrate Autumn collection, that would be perfect for taking to a dear friend. Inside I have tucked a couple of dishtowels, a set of ceramic measuring spoons, a paper acorn box filled with treats, and a jar of honey.

I cut the “Thankful & Blessed” oval on the front of the basket from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper and placed it on top of a band of Autumn Acorns paper. Next, I used the Falling Leaves paper and Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock to create the paper sunflowers adorning either side. (Find this adorable sunflower cut file HERE at MyScrapChick.com)
I painted the brown cardstock flower centers with THIS gold glitter water brush pen by Art-C to make them shimmer and sparkle. (I couldn’t quite capture these on camera … I sooo wish you could see them in person! They are AWESOME!)

The orange flowers were created from orange paper from the 6×6 paper pad. I used the Decorative Brads for the centers, and then added them around the sunflowers along with a few floral stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. This friendly chipboard squirrel holding the acorn hints to the paper acorn box placed inside the basket.

The basket itself was cut using Kraft Designer Cardstock using the basket file from the Fall Harvest SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. I used the Wood Grain Embossing Folder to give it lots of delicious, woodsy texture!

I created another sunflower for the top of this box to coordinate with the basket, and then tied a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the acorn’s stem. The acorn lid is created from more Chestnut Brown Linen cardstock embossed with the Autumn Florals Embossing Folder.

Carta Bella Paper: “Practically Perfect” Carousel Gift Box

After several wintry days here in Utah, I’m ready for the warmth of sunny skies and the scent of blooming flowers! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a cheery, Carousel Gift Box using the beautiful Carta Bella Practically Perfect collection … perfect for chasing the winter blues away!
Jana Eubank Carta Bella Practically Perfect Carousel Box 1 600
This gift box makes me feel like I’m walking right down Cherry Tree Lane to an adventure in a chalk-drawn park! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and a carousel box cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (Design #49865). I LOVE using the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for projects like this! It’s sturdy, with a beautiful texture that makes your project feel even more opulent!

I used the striped Garden Melody paper to create the roof and topped it with a bright ribbon accented with a paper flower cut with the Flower Set #5 die set. I used a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack, adding more detail to it with a few stickers and a chipboard phrase.

Each panel of the carousel is backed with the darling patterns included in the 6×6 paper pad. I love the variety! I chose one of the panels to serve as the “front” of the box and added a bit more decorating to the lower left corner with one of the Chipboard Phrases. Fussy cut flowers and solid blue die cut greenery (Spring Greenery Die Set) add texture.

Finish the box with sparkly gems on the scalloped edge of the roof and the center of each star and you have a special gift box ready to be filled with a treat or two! Enjoy!

American Crafts: Stay Colorful with Easter Egg Favor Boxes

 
It’s always fun to gather family together for Easter dinner or an Easter egg decorating party in the Spring. Why not create these darling Easter egg-shaped favor bags for your guests using the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection this year?!
Jana Eubank - American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Stay Colorful - Easter Egg Favor Bags 1 600
I love choosing a holiday icon and incorporating it into my party decor. This time, I chose to use the egg. I love this shaped bag that I was able to cut out using my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine using Design #124445 from the Silhouette Design Store.
I cut the base of the bag from white textured cardstock, and then used papers from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 12×12 Single Sided Paper Pad for decorating.
Jana Eubank - American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Stay Colorful - Easter Egg Favor Bags 2 600
The first thing I did was to choose the papers for the flat decorative panels of each bag. I chose the marbled paper of the center egg first, because it reminded me of what eggs look like when you dye them! I then chose the yellow script and pink papers to coordinate with the marbled paper.  The foiled designs of the paper pad look extra special on this project!

Next, I used a pair of scissors to fussy-cut several flowers and butterflies from papers in the pad. The foil outlines of the flowers really help them to stand out. They look so elegant and would be pretty adorning the plate of each person and the Easter dinner table. Next, I chose a Glittered Word Cardstock Die Cut sentiment to go on the front of each bag.

The Glittered Words are mounted on a banner shape handcut from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful 6×6 paper pad. The smaller patterns of the 6×6 paper pad are perfect for grounding the sentiments, and the patterns don’t compete with the shapes of the letters, making the sentiment difficult to read.

I then used the Stay Colorful Alpha Clear Acrylic Stamps to create a personalized tag for each favor box. I LOVE the font of these stamps! I clipped the tag onto the handle of the egg box with one of the Iridescent Mini Clothespins. CUTE!!!

These egg favor boxes are the perfect way to add that unique touch to your Easter party. Your guests are sure to feel special!
