Thank you to everyone that stopped by the Farmer’s Market in old town Casa Grande yesterday. It was fun talking to everyone and meeting so many wonderful people. I didn’t sell one thing, but I had a great time and am looking forward to next Tuesday’s Farmer’s Market. If you get a chance come down and say “Hi”, and bring a friend. It is really small right now because it is inside Herbalicious, but in October it will be held outside and it will be much bigger. I forgot to take pictures so I will post some of next weeks event.
Wow, it is still sprinkling outside, the sky is all grey, the air is still and looks like it should be cool outside but it is very humid and hot. I wonder if it will be like this all day? I wish, I love days like this, because for some reason I am so much more productive.
Now down to business…lol.
Here is one of the Halloween box cards that I made and the step by step process in pictures.
These are all the base pieces cut out. The box (the solid grey, scored cardstock at the top of the picture) is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score length wise down the middle at 2 1/2″, then score width wise at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″. The pattern for the box will be posted under this tutorial. The back panels (the long brick looking pieces) are 5 2/8″ x 1 4/8″. The bottom panels are 2 4/8″ x 1 4/8″. The top panels are 2 2/8″ x 1 4/8″.
When you glue the pieces on this is what it should look like for the outside.
These are the only panels that you will put on the opposite/front side.
Take the little 3″ x 1 1/8″ strips, these are going to be the center pieces to hold your display/decorations. Fold them on 1/2″ score lines just like shown in the pictures above and below.
This is how it should look when you have all the pieces glued in place.
Then you will glue your front panel on the inside of the back flap like in the above picture.
Here are a couple of the stamps and edgelits in the Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog, from the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies bundle, that I used.
Here they are all cut out.
Here are a couple more of the Edgelits from the same bundle that I used for this card.
Here is the final product.
