Open If you Dare


I love Halloween and I always love the Halloween suites that Stampin’ Up! releases each year – without fail. This years is even better than last years; the Designer Series Paper (DSP), the embellishments, the glimmer… I love it all!  I also love how it gets me using colours that I don’t often reach for – such as Cajun Craze.

This little box is the right size to house a candle jar from Air Wick, I prefer using these inside pumpkins on Halloween as they contain the flame, are easy to set in and out of the pumpkin and can be used around the home afterwards too.

Inspired by the candle itself, my first version was made using Blackberry Bliss, it co-ordinated well with the DSP pattern I chose and also meant I could switch out the colour and keep all the other elements the same.

I cannot get enough of the embellishments on this box – the Iridescent Pearls, the Black Glimmer paper and the Glittered Organdy Ribbon. They look so good together and make a perfect finish for my box.

Which colour do you prefer?
