We're Crafting Boo Boxes with GlueArts and Authentique!

 Halloween Boo Boxes
Sorceress GlueArts Designer: Lesley Langdon

Designer Tip: I love little boxes, because they spice up your tables, and you can place many types of goodies and little presents inside. Good things come in small boxes! With these cute papers, and the fact that they are double sided, just adds to the character of these little gifts.

Supplies:
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro (Pro+ Cartridge)
Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun
AUTHENTIQUE Glowing Collection (Patterned Paper, Stickers, and Die Cuts)
Spellbinders S4-352 Spiral Blossoms Two (Die Template)
Spellbinders LF-012 Square Petal Top Box (Die Template)
Spellbinders Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine
Shimmerz Coloringz (Mon Shari Spritz)
Buttons by Buttons Galore and More
Creative Impressions Ribbons

Instructions:
1. Die cut petal top boxes out of Authentique GLOWING patterned papers. Adhere together using Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro (Pro+ Cartridge).
2. Fill inside of boxes with candies, then tie shut with ribbons.

3. Make spiral blossom flowers for the tops of boxes by die cutting more Authentique patterned papers using a flower die template. Roll in from the outside and hold together with your Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun (if you would like a different color, use some of your mists to add colors to your patterned papers).

4. Add alpha stickers to die cuts, and glue on all your decorations using your Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun.

Candy Treat Container
Ghostly GlueArts Designer: Ania Lexander

GlueArts supplies: 
Glue Glider PRO+ - High Tac
U Cut it Foam
Raisens

Other: Antique Howling, empty box (mine was a perfume box =) ), wooden sticks

1. Measure your box and decide for a "background"-patterned paper. Cut out the needed squares and adhere with high tac adhesive.

2. For the back and front I decided to go with a "mat" where the tags and die cuts would be adhered to with a mix of raisens and U cut it foam.

3. The harlequin-pattern of the "enchanted" sheet makes such a nice border - just handcut it and adhere around the top of the box.

4. Take the remaining die cuts and adhere them two by two on a wooden stick with raisens in the middle. 

5.- Fill with candy and stick the wooden sticks in between 

Finally - I have to brag a bit.  Comment from my daughters 5 yr old friend: Wow, that's so pretty and frightening at the same time!

  1. We always go trick or treating in a small town square---all the shop owners dress up & pass out candy to the kids--adults dress up too --there are costume contests, games & prizes for the kids, haunted house-- really fun!

  4. We've always done the neighborhood group trick or treating thing. Fun stuff. Now my kids have hit their teen age years and I'm afraid it's all going to change :( What 14 year old wants to trick or treat with mom and dad?? This year we will probably have their friends over for chili or pizza and let them wander the neighborhood on their own. At least I'll stay warm :)

  5. Wow! love all the boxes! so much fun. would work for any season, just change up the colors.

  40. Love the halloween projects, great how you misted the flowers, and created a fun treat box with all the stick banners. We do make some homemade treats - candy apples, carmel apples, and hotchocolate. Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  41. We make a costume (this year Pikachu). We bake cupcakes and have a contest to see whose decorations are most gruesome. On Halloween day we carve our pumpkins so they're nice and fresh... and finally we go trick or treating all dressed up (yep, the adults too...) then come back to share the loot (share may be an exaggeration) and have hot chocolate. I am trying to make boxes for our cupcakes this year and the new pro glider would be a great help (not very subtle here, but heck, I have been drooling after it for weeks and tried every giveaway possible!)

  46. great projects, of course it was all about candy and back in my day you could make popcorn balls and give them away miss that part a lot, that your so afraid to eat anything home made when it was all about home made treats.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love the boxes today! The tradition at my house is where to hide the Halloween candy from my husband. If I don't hide it, he eats it all. He has such a sweet tooth. And I think he enjoys searching for it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. More great projects! Thanks for another inspirational week.

    ReplyDelete
  62. We make a halloween basket to collect candy in yearly. Our tradition is to start off and end up at Taylor's nana and papa's house on Halloween night. She has a huge heart and always shares her things before we leave for home.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow! These boxes are toooooo cute. I just have to make some for my daughter to hand out at school for halloween. She will be the hit of the party! And THANKS for the chance to win some AWESOME product.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Since we don't really have any kids in our neighborhood anymore, we go to my daughters to hand out candy. That way they can take the kids trick or treating and we get to see a neighborhood full of kids.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Absolutely love all of this-I need these designers to come visit me.I could live these lovelies around all year long.Thanks again Glue Arts and Authentique!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love the projects! We trick or treat in our neighborhood with our DD at least for a few more years, my baby is growing up fast.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Now that my daughter is older, we don't really have any Halloween traditions. We used to take her out in the neighborhood. Since she was never a huge candy eater, we could go down one block and back and she would be just tickled pink.

    ReplyDelete
  68. What a cute project! I <3 Authentique and Glue Glider Pro!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I stay home and hand out candy while our daughter takes her little ones around the neighborhood. We were going to go to Boo At the Zoo today but didn't make it.

    when we first moved into our s/d we only had about 20 houses and used to go on a hay ride w/a tractor pulling us and he would take the kids to each house since they were so spread out. That was really fun. (now there is over 100 so it is more fun to have the kids run to each house)

  70. When the kids were little we used to do the neighborhood group thing with friends. I don't usually make my own treats because in this day and age people would just throw it away because they are so paranoid about needles and razor blades being in stuff the kids get. Someone has to be sick to do that to a kid. Love the box. What kid (or co-worker)wouldn't love getting this full of goodies.

    ReplyDelete
  71. We decorate the house with all the handmade decorations we have accumulated over the years and hand out treats to the little ones. Love the projects!

    ReplyDelete
  72. We used to love having Halloween parties, but now that the kids are grown we just hand out candy.

  73. These are some talented individuals and amazing creativity!

    We have an annual family halloween potluck where we bring "spooky" food. Every year I am amazed at what is put on the table. One year a pot of chili actually GLOWED, and of course the finger cookies and bat chicken wings ... always lots of fun and giggles. Bring me some rolaids!

    ReplyDelete
  74. My kids are grown, so the traditions I do now are to put out the fun decorations in the house and also help at the Harvest Festival for kids at my church.

    ReplyDelete

  88. The boxes are so cute. Our kids are in their 20's now, but we still go over to Gradma and Grandpa's house for a visit. Sometimes we will even dress up and they still pretend they don't recognize us. :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. We love inviting a couple of kids over to go out with my son, we have an early dinner, put out the pumpkins, they go out trick or treating and I stay home to give out candies. Plus I make some crafty treat to give out in his class. FUN!
