Halloween Treats for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

I like to make Halloween cards, especially to send to my grandkids and nieces and nephews, but Treat boxes or bags, not so much. But I was up for the challenge for today’s Hop and I hope you enjoy what I have to share.

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations – this month’s projects are all about Halloween. Prepare yourself for wonderful mix of spooky, scary and sweet. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Halloween Treat

What better way to start a Halloween Treat than with a mini Pizza box. These 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 1 boxes are adorable and so easy to decorate based on your needs.

Halloween Treat

I pulled out my Magic in this Night Designer Series paper for initial inspiration and immediately found it in the ornate spiderweb design. I used paper snips to cut it out, adhered with liquid glue to a piece of Cajun Craze then snipped it out again. This allowed me to have a nice border but also stability so I could pop it up with dimensionals. I cannot make a project of any kind without dimensionals.

Halloween Treat

Underneath my pretty spiderweb, I create two layers. The frame was made using the fancy cut out die from Hallow Magic Night Bundle. Cut four pieces then hold two pieces together overlapping each other squared up. Cut up the diagonal to make the fitted corners.

How about that shiny spider? I used a technique I’ve seen Brian King (StampWithBrian.com) use before. Take packing tape and apply it to a piece of cardstock. Any color cardstock will do, I used black. Then die cut your cardstock. How cool and how easy is that. Who needs fancy foil paper when you can do this. The white spider web is from the Peek-a-Hoot die set, part of the Have a Hoot stamp and die bundle.

A little mesh ribbon tied around the box and a cute sentiment from the Hallows Night Magic Bundle and it’s all done.

  1. The doily spiderweb is PERFECT for the top of this gift box, Lynn! Love the layers you’ve built on the project! So glad you hopped with us today! ♥

  2. Wow! So many things to like about your pizza box. I will start with the color. I love the rich look of cajun craze rather than a bright orange. The square of “lace” that you built is really pretty and very creative. Your fussy cutting of the spider web is perfect, and really? Packing tape? I have never seen that, and I love the glossy look. I must try it soon! Thanks for sharing this great project.

    • thanks so much Linda. Full disclosure though, I did not fussy cut the spiderweb. That would be way beyond my talents. It is a die from Have a Hoot bundle, the Peek a Hoot dies.

  3. The sentiment is perfect for the pizza box! And I must try the technique for making the spider.

  4. What a great box! So many fun elements. I love what you did with the spider web and the spider!

  5. Love all of the layers, and that ribbon is so spider-webby!!!

  6. Oh My! I am bowled over. This is a FABULOUS layout. I LOVE all the layers and how you built them. Kudos!

  7. Love all the spider webs brought together! Great box idea.

  8. Such a fun and festive treat box!!

  9. This is fabulous! I didn’t get the specialty ribbon, and am now regretting it! That ribbon combination is gorgeous

  10. This is stunning Lynn! All those layers build up to one amazing card!

  11. Lynn, I love all the details you’ve added to this project! So fun!
