MMM - Mid-week Motivation - Haunted House Treat box

Good afternoon everyone - did you think I had forgotten that today was Wednesday?!
Today's piece of inspiration starts with a piece of black card stock 8 1/4" x 6 1/2". It was scored in both directions  every 2". So you had 4 squares and a bit one way and 3 squares and a bit the other. Take a look at the photo to see what I did next

I used my Cuttlebug and a die to make a hole in one of the middle squares, cut off a bit of the edge on the right and then cut the bottom score lines. What looks like a square piece of paper is in fact some vellum which was attached on the inside over the hole.

Next I folded my card stock to make a box shape and secured it with stick glue. The bottom flaps fold up to make a strong base. Pinch the sides at the top to make a milk carton shape.

A lid for the box was made by cutting a strip of card stock 5" x 2". It was scored at 2", 2 1/2" and 3". Small pieces of gray card stock were cut and added to make roof tiles and were attached below the score lines as in the photo above.
When you put the lid on the box and decorate it - it looks like this

The pumpkins were made by punching out orange circles, folding them in half and sticking 3 together then attaching them to the house.
To make something orange, black and spooky see this week's challenge here - Jacqueline.


  1. This is a wonderful project - love it and reckon I recognise the 'ghost' - that punch is so versatile!!

  2. OH, wow!!! This is super--I am gonna have to CASE it! :)
