For Week 9 of my 12 Weeks of Halloween I decided to decorate a Kraft Pillow Box. These fun boxes give you a little extra room to give treats – candy or even a baked cookie or two. I added sponged Blackberry Bliss for color and a fun acetate oval window to give a peek at the inside. To finish the Halloween theme, I used the Wicked Dies and The Raven stamp set. You can watch the Facebook Live replay of this project here or on my YouTube channel here.
Die cut out the word wicked with the Wicked dies from Blackberry Bliss cs. Use glue to adhere the word to pillow box under the oval opening and overlapping the frame & acetate.
Stamp the raven image from The Raven stamp set in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cs. Color the raven image with the Stampin’ Blends. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut out the colored raven. Use snail to loop Silver Metallic Thread onto the back of the colored raven. Add Wink of Stella to the raven’s feathers for sparkle. Color a rhinestone with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend and add it to the raven for its eye.
Die cut a small Basic Black cs oval, add Tear & Tape to the oval, and then cover the Silver Metallic Thread on the back of the raven.
Add gray enamel dots from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to the pillow box front.
I hope you enjoyed Week 9 of my 12 Weeks of Halloween – Wicked Raven Pillow Treat Box. You can order everything I used to make this fun pillow box in my Online Store now including the kraft pillow boxes, The Raven stamp set, and the Wicked Dies so you can make your own wicked raven treat boxes for Halloween.
One of the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is that you can pre-order new products and get your hands on these fabulous items first. Starting October 1st demos can pre-order the awesome Christmastime Is Here Suite – a beautiful suite of Christmas products that can be purchased separately (available to customers November 1st while supplies last) and the new Paper Trimmer (not yet announced when will be available for customers).
