Boo Boxes

This project is great for using as a home decor item or filling with small treasures &/or candy and gifting!  Each box is approximatley 2-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 1-3/4" and comes with decorative mats and the "BOO" sentiment and bats as shown.  The file is compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces.  You will have three boxes.  To assemble the boxes, fold on all the score lines.  Adhere mats to the box in the coordinating area.  Then add a strong adhesive tape to the tabs (one side tab and the three bottom tabs) as shown.
2. Adhere the side tab to the box side to form its shape.  Add adhesive tape to the remaining bottom tab.
3. Fold in the two side tabs and press the first bottom tab in and secure in place.  
4. Adhere the last bottom tab in place and rub from inside to ensure it is adhered properly.
5. Your box should look like this now.
6. Use foam adhesive to adhere letters to the front of each box, centering.
7-9. Adhere the bats randomly on the letters using foam adhesive.

Embellish as desired!





This project is great for using as a home decor item or filling with small treasures and/or candy and gifting!  Each box is approximately 3-1/4" x 3" x 2" and comes with decorative mats, the "WICKED" sentiment, and ghost/bats as shown.  The file is compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 

These boxes follow the tutorial from above.






Pop-Up Halloween Cards


This card is approximately 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" when finished and features a pop-up design on the inside. The files come with the card base, the paper elements shown, the inside pop-up mat, and mats for the pop-up. All of the files are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. 







This file will be sized larger than the 12x12 mat with all the pieces grouped together.  In the Studio software, simply "ungroup" the file and move the pieces you want to cut to the virtual mat. Note: Anything that is off to the side of the active mat (in the grey space) will not cut so just leave the items off to the side until you are ready to cut them.  

If you resize anything, make sure you do so BEFORE ungrouping items to keep all proportions accurate. 


Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces. PLEASE keep all letter centers (like the middle of the B, R, and A) they will be used later!  Note: the zombie silhouette cut is incorrect in the image above, it is now a solid silhouette.  Ink around pieces if desired.
2.  Adhere the zombie body piece behind the shirt and the black outline on top of the shirt.  Adhere the eye pieces together.
3.  Adhere the zombie head and hands to the solid silhouette cut and then adhere the brain in place, centering all pieces so the black border is even around them.
4.  Adhere the eyes on with foam adhesive and adhere shirt in place.
5.  Fold the card base and adhere the words on to the pop-up mat.  Tip: For the letter centers, I put the letter inside the phrase and then adhere the center down so that it will be in the correct spot.  Then I lift the letter being careful to leave the center behind.
6.  Adhere the mat on to the front of the card using foam adhesive and then adhere your zombie in place!  I use foam adhesive to adhere the zombie on as well!
7.  For the inside mat, you have to fold it on the score lines.  This image should assist with that!  Once folded, place adhesive on the outer areas (only the spots that will touch the inside card base) on both sides of the mat.
8.  Adhere the mat in place centering on the inside card base.
9.  Adere your phrase to the center mat, centering it!  

Your card is completed!  Embellish as desired!

You've Been Boo'd Boxes!

Do you "Boo" your neighborhood? We love to deliver little treats to our neighbors old and young and these little boxes and tags make it so much fun! We fill the boxes with candy and wait until it is dusk out and then we place the boxes on the door handles and ring the doorbell and run! Once you have been "Boo'd" you are suppose to "Boo" someone else which leads to a lot of fun little treats for everyone and the kids just LOVE it! This box is approximately 6" tall with handle and 1-3/4" wide.  The basket front is approximately 3" tall and holds lots and lots of goodies. The file is compatible with both the 12x12 and 8-1/2x12 mats!

This file will be sized larger than the 12x12 mat with all the pieces grouped together.  In the Studio software, simply "ungroup" the file and move the pieces you want to cut to the virtual mat Note: Anything that is off to the side of the active mat will not cut so just leave the items off to the side until you are ready to cut them.  If you resize anything, make sure you do so BEFORE ungrouping items to keep all proportions accurate. 


1.  Cut out all your pieces.  Once you cut, fold on the scorelines.
2-3.   Add a strong adhesive to the tabs as shown. The mats are adhered on the basket base to show where the adhesive goes.  
4.  Adhere the sides together.  They will overlap a little but will form the banner shape like your side mats.
5. Adhere your mats on, your box should look similar to this now.
6. For the "You've Been Boo'd", I like to cut mine out with vinyl.  It makes the cuts easier and since it is adhesived back it's even easier to put on!
7-8. Apply the transfer tape and adhere it to the front of the box.
9. Now your box should look like this.
10. Adhere your bat on the the box and embellish as desired!
