This fun pizza box has a shaker box on top with all kinds of scary critters, ghosts and other Halloween shaker material in it. That’s nice of course, especially to treat children, a toy and in the box….A trick are a treat????
On the boxes I glued the scarecrow from Esther’s new collection.
The inside is also decorated.
Of course there is something delicious in it but even that looks very spooky!!!
Below is a small workshop of how I made the box.
The box is punched out of purple cardstock.
Gathered some shaking material.
For the top and the inside of Halloween box I used design paper (I don’t remember which brand it is but very old). Die cut with the dies of the pizza box.
The stamps are also part of Esther’s collection and you can play with them and make a ticket according to your own idea!
The edge received a layer of double-sided tape of 3 mm
Stick a piece of mica on it and then strips of foam tape, also of 3 mm, along the edges. I cut it myself. TIP from Els.
You now have a raised edge so that the shaker material will have room to move later.
I decorated the edges of the box both on the inside and the outside with distress ink.
The piece of design paper that I stuck on the top first got some nice stamps. The spider web is from my own collection.
Then stick the piece with mica on it, leave the strip of the foam tape on the top so you can fill the shaker box with the shaker material.
If everything is to your liking, remove the strip from the foam tape and stick the shaker box firmly to the box, pressing the edges well.
Then you can decorate the inside according to your own idea.
When the box has been completely processed on the inside and outside you can stick the scarecrow on it with glue. If you prefer to use tape, be careful not to cover the entire scarecrow with tape, because it sticks a bit over the box.
The edges of my box also got a decorative layer, you can use strips of design paper for that. I made strips with an impresslits from Tim Holtz and inked them with distress ink.
I had so much fun creating this box. I have already made 2, this is the other one.
For the other one I just used white cardstock and edited it with stamps and a stencil from the Art collection with the bird’s feet.
Bring on Halloween!
