I know these are a few days late, but I wanted to share a couple of Halloween projects that I made. Back a few posts, I entered a couple of cupcake treat boxes in the cuttlebug challenge on the Cricut Circle blog. I loved them so much that I made these fun treat boxes for my son's class at school for Halloween. If you have a Cricut and do not own Sweet Tooth Boxes I highly recommend this cartridge. I am always sending something into school or to my Mom's friends, so this really comes in handy for packaging them in fun ways.
I like that you don't have to only put cupcakes in them, either.
I also wanted to make a little something for my neighbor's 8 year old son and this is what I came up with.
The card is my favorite. I saw a card with the sentiment Greetings From Your Closet on page 64 of September's Cardmaker magazine. I thought the Greeting was adorable and it was perfect for the Bump In The Night cartridge monsters.
I used a door from the Wildcard Cartridge and added some glitter to the panels. Since it was a Halloween card, I wanted to grunge it up a little, so I used Gold Crackle Paint and brushed it over the glitter and door. I cut a sign from Freshly Picked, then made some cuts into it and ran it through the vagabond. I distressed it and used distress ink to age it. The word Greetings is cut from Winter Woodland. I cut all the monsters from Bump In The Night. I really love that cartridge.
The inside of the card is also Bump In The Night. The sentiment actually says "In your closet" but I altered it by cutting the word "In" off and adding "From" to the phrase. I found the word on the Sentimentals cartridge. I added a bat sticker that I had in my stash to cover the hole left by the word "In". I didn't sign the card from us, but did address the card to our neighbor's son. I added a "wall" to the back of the card, just to make it look like the door is in a room. I also used distress ink on that, too.
My neighbor knew immediately where the bucket came from, as did her son. I think the handmade card gave me away!
I hope everyone that celebrates Halloween had a fun day!
Now it's time to take down the decorations and get ready for Thanksgiving, It's so hard to believe how fast this year has gone.....
