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.

Hello there, Jackie here today sharing a pizza box with a cute robin design. These lovely little boxes make great treats for the kids at Christmas filled with chocolate or sweet treats, I have another five designs to do for the little people in my family.
Step One: Start by die cutting and building the pizza box, here I have used 250gsm white card however you could use whatever you prefer.
Use light grey card to die cut and glue together three scalloped edged frames, ink up a panel of white card to fit behind the frame stack.
Step Two: Die cut all the winter bird pieces using white soft finish card then use the photo below to ink the robin colours. Die cut the eyes into black card and use a white gel pen for detail.
Step Three: Build up the topper starting with the scallop frame, trim the branch to fit snuggly then add the snow followed by the robin. Finish off with a sentiment of your choice.
I hope I have inspired you today. Happy crafting Jackie
Distress Inks: Barn Door, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso, Faded Jeans, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone

Hello my friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. I live in Arizona so it is still hot here but I love the colors of fall (orange is my fav) so I ignore the heat and pretend it’s a cooler fall day. Today’s card is filled with fall colors and some very cute images both old and new.
This is a 9″ X 4″ slimline card so the measurements start out as 9″ X 8″ scored down the center of the 8″ side.
The front panel is 3.75″ X 8.75″.
To start out I used some white Soft Finish Cardstock and did a little color blending using the colors of fall. The original plan was to have a horizontal slimline card but as things progressed it turned into a vertical one.
Some silver stars were added using a stencil and some embossing paste. I always love the results of this method but sometimes forget about it. It is good way to get dimension and add interest to any card.
After cutting a couple grass strips and adding some ink the base was ready to go.
I used Joset’s Pumpkin die – cutting it from white and then coloring it. You can cut this one from colored cardstock as well. If you are a long time ECD fan you will recognize the other pumpkin from long ago. I still love it. Using the Cat die set I cut out and assembled my black cat. I used some parts from the Fox die set to make the paws as I wanted some that were larger than the ones in the Cat die set. The eyes are Craft Drops that I let dry and then colored with a marker.
The Hello Pumpkin banner is from an older set that has been discontinued. You may notice that the banner on the finished card is different from the one shown above . I was not happy with the color so simply stamped another one from white and edged it with some green.
Some of the elements were added to the front panel and then the entire thing was edged in black. Once the project was at this point some leaves, a spooky tree and another pumpkin were added.
