Halloween Treat Box - Adapted Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies

With Halloween not so far away, I tried my hand at a fun little project, adapting the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies.   I don't usually "do" Halloween at all, so it's a first for me.

That said, I really like my little Halloween Treat Box.

My adaptation is the addition of a simple lid to turn it into a box rather than a treat holder.

I loved the Cat Punch as soon as I saw it, so Halloween was a great excuse to put it to good use. I wanted the little box to be about fun - so added some googly eyes and the cute little Pumpkin face topper which I shared last week.

I really like taking a die and adapting it to create something a little different than what it was originally intended for.

I was all punched out by the end of my project.  I used six punches in total !   I have to say - I am "a punch girl".  I love the fact that they are so handy and portable.  Its so nice to go off crafting without having to lug a die cutting machine everywhere !

Hope you like it.

Here is my latest video tutorial with step by step instructions.

I had one or two technical glitches along the way with this one whilst editing and uploading, but with perseverance, I got there in the end !  And apologies for the inky fingers !  I got very messy with a project immediately prior to filming this one.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you pop back again tomorrow for my next project.

  1. thanks Linda great tutorial.

  2. I just thought i would addd for other crafters watching your tutorial that you don't have to have a die to make a box and the delightful daisy punch would make a good pumpkin cut up.

  3. That's really cute Linda! Thanks for sharing!
