Happy Haunts

Happy Friday! Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a fiendishly fun take on the Cabana Milk Carton for Halloween candy. I love the files at SVG Attic because you can use them in so many different ways, makes crafting fun.

This Milk Carton from the CG Under the Sea Kit is super easy to assemble with minimal cutting, always a good thing when you are in a hurry. 

I used Echo Park Paper Co. Halloween Town Paper Kit for my project. The milk carton would a great Halloween party favor.

Witch's Brew

Welcome back and Happy Friday! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing two fun Halloween projects using the SDS Coffee Break

I love the Coffee Break Set because you can change it up for the holidays with fun pattern papers. 
It's very easy to put together. Take your time with the lid and do a dry run first, you should have no problems. 

Here are two pictures showing how I use binder clips to help me hold pieces 
together allowing enough dry time while I work on other pieces.

Beware of Black Cats

Happy Friday! I'm so excited for this time of year, the holidays, vacation, and all the time spent with family. I thought I would start September out with a little bit of Halloween fun. Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing this Witches Hat using the SDS Halloween Soiree Midnight Witches Hat Box

The first thing I did was resize the file, the hat measures 9.25" high by 8.25" wide (at the widest point). Be sure to resize all the pieces at one time so they fit together properly. Instead of using the overlays with cutouts on the outside I removed the stars and moons to make a solid triangle, inserted inside the hat to make the star and moon cutouts on the outer layer stand out. I used EP The Apothecary Emporium Kit and Orange Glitter Paper from my stash.
