Hello SCT readers! I can hardly believe that we are wrapping up summer and school is already in session. Before we know it Halloween will be here so why not get prepared a little early! I recently had the opportunity to play with some product from Taylored Expressions, this monster die screamed Halloween to me.
The first thing I created is this card.
Let’s face it, the possibilities are endless. It’s also kind of addicting so if you’re not careful you can create a whole little army of these guys (think garland or invitations). And because I couldn’t stop there, I also created this little treat box.
Sure I had to cut up one of the monster bodies but it all worked out! And the box is SUPER easy to make.
- Cut a 6”X6” sheet of paper
- Score each side 1.5” from the edge
- Cut each square in the corners down the center
- Fold the side and glue the flaps down. (Tip: I added brads to the flaps for a little decorative reinforcement)
Hopefully you’ve been inspired to create something fun for Halloween. Even if you don’t have this die, I hope you’ll use the simple box instructions to create something of your own (and please share if you do.)
Look out for the fall issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today releasing September 19th for a lot more inspiration and maybe another Halloween treat or two!
