Tutorial on Halloween box /One-Click0909 MFT Challenge!

Hello everyone today I wanted to share with you a tutorial on this box that I made for the MFT Challenge that is going on right now on SCS!

  • CLICK PICTURES TO SEE LARGER VIEW!!! First you will cut
  • 1 5x5 piece of cardstock for the top box
  • 1 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece for the bottom box like shown in picture below!!
  • score both pieces 1 inch on all 4 sides
  • scored 1 inch on all four sides like shown in this picture!
  • then make your corner cuts, there should only be four cuts like shown below!!
    Of course Boots had to take my seat again!!!LOL so I just grabbed another, thank goodness I have 4 chairs down here...:)

I used the spellbinders shapes to make a piece to cover the box both for the top and the bottom!

You will need:

  • 2 pieces that are the same color as your box
  • 1 smaller die cut to stamp your images on(use white, or other neutral color of your choice)
  • Stamps of your choice(I picked Alota Rubber Stamps HAUNTED HOUSE, and WHO"S THAT GHOST? Flopsey)
  • double sided red tape(to hold scalloped pieces to box both top and bottom)
  • roller tape(ATG tape gun, or another strong tape to hold box together )

Add tape to all four corners on each box(Top&bottom box )

Next you will attach the top decorated piece to the larger box(would have been your 5x5 piece) this will make the top of the box!
Then do the same for the bottom of the box!!

For my top piece I stamped the Haunted House, and then airbrushed the background 1st and then colored the house with copics!
Flopsey the Ghost was stamped and colored with copics,and then cut out!

Add your extra embellishments and so forth, and your done!!!

Hope you enjoyed todays tutorial, and thank you for stopping by!!

Awesome Cheryl thanks showing us how to make this, I need to try one. So darling.

Tami said...

I am going to have to give this a whirl. With the copic airbrush do you have to use the refills or the pens. My guess is the refills which would be way expenisve.

This is just adorable. I have to show it to my daughter,she love Halloween. Thanks for sharing the details of making one of our own.

My daughter purchased us the airbrush system for the Copic Markers and we can't wait to give it a try...looks like such fun.
