Halloween Magic


This year’s Halloween paper is absolutely gorgeous and whilst Halloween is still almost two months away, I find myself using it again and again (you’ll see it make an appearance in my Birthday Party Live Week). For this project, I wanted to showcase the gorgeous bats and the giant label you get as part of the stamps and dies, so a large box was the perfect solution.

The large bat on this project was the first item I used when I received my Mini Catalogue pre-order, the fact that the dies fit around the Designer Series Paper (DSP) patterns is a great added bonus and I love how these bats look when they’re cut out.

I went quite simple with the box design so that the paper and the decoration could take centre stage. The Metallic Mesh ribbon is perfect for this project with its almost spiderweb appearance – but could be a great addition on Christmas projects too.

Finally, a bit of blends colouring on the label brings it all together. The box is large enough to fit numerous treats – perhaps to give to children out trick treating? Or as a table gift at a Halloween party? What do you think? I hope you like it. #

Best Wishes,
