Spooky Birthday Halloween Box

Published by at 2:00 pm under Inkadinkado Designs

  HELLO! I wanted to make a box for my BF’s Mom’s for her birthday. Can I just say…I LOVE IT! Sorry, but this is just one of those times where I just have to say how darned proud of it I am! LOL! 🙂 It all started out with THIS Provo Craft Box. I painted it black with my Making Memories black paint, then put the Making Memories Clear Glitter Glaze on top. I love how the black paint picked up the green in the glitter. I think it looks really neat!


I stamped a punch of pumpkins from the Pumpkins Galore set. The large pumpkins I stamped in Really Rust and Pumpkin SU ink. On a few pumpkins I stamped THIS spider on it. The smaller pumpkins I colored with barely banana and mustard markers.  I layered them onto the bottom of the box and added SU gingham ribbon. The super cool bat comes from THIS stamp set, Mindscape Halloween. Once I cut out and attached the bat with pop up glue dots, I added Black Diamond Stickles to it.



Around the bottom part of the lid, I added black ruffled ribbon, gingham ribbon and polka dot ribbon.  The polka dot paper on top comes from last years halloween paper from Making Memories. I embossed THIS spider web on it on black 3 times. I added Black Prima Galaxy Stars, Glack Bling and some older Prima Flowers I had. YES that’s a bat brad in the middle of the flowers! 🙂 (Making Memories as well) I stamped colored and cut out another pumpkin from Pumpkins Galore and attached it with pop up glue dots!The Jolly Roger flag is from SKULLS stamp set! I stamped it on shimmery vellum I had and wired it onto the bling!




To finish it off I added a ton of Plumeria dew drops onto the bottom and lid. Very cool that some look orange and some look green-ish depending on what light they are in. So that’s it! 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

SUPER exciting news!! The new COSMO CRICKET 6 x 6 pads are now IN STORE!!! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! 😀
