Haunted House Favor Box


Happy Monday peeps!

Today I am sharing a fun little "Haunted House" treat box I made using the Fancy Favor Box die from Stampin Up.
I was heavily inspired by THIS haunted house box on Cammie's blog. She used a Silhouette cut file for her haunted house and I cut my own using her picture as a guide. I wanted to use the Fancy Favor Box die and add the haunted house to the front so I cut a box using pumpkin pie card stock and measured the front panel to decide the width of my haunted house. 
I used basic black card stock for the base of the haunted house and the First Edititon DSP for the house front. I cut extra roofs and added them to the base with dimesionals. After that the fun begins, decorating the haunted house.


I used the scallop edge punch to add "shingles"  to the roof of the first floor of the house. The pumpkin pie colored gingerbread trim comes from the fancy favor box die, it is the piece that is left from the top of the die when it is cut out. I used the retired key tag punch to make the door and the window on the door is made with a very cut down small oval punch. I added a fence all around the box which is a MS punch. I sponged most of the black with some whisper white craft to make it show up better. 
The windows are hand cut and stamped with some images from the Stampin Up "Spooky Bingo Bits" stamp set. I  stamped and cut out a couple of ghost and a black cat. The "Happy Halloween"  is from the al a carte stamp called "Haunted Forest". The "Caution Enter If You Dare" is some K & Company adhesive strips. 
I hope you like my "Haunted House" Favor Box. I would love to offer you a template for the house that I drew but I do not know how to get it on my computer...LOL, I am computer challenged in that area. I have it here saved on a sheet of paper, for future use and would be thrilled to share, so if anyone can school me on the how to's I would be happy to share.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Vicki this is outrageously fabulous! Love it to bits! Would sooooooo love to make one so the only thought I have to offer is that if your printer is also a scanner, you could scan your sheet of paper and save it as a jpeg or pdf file, then put that up for people to download. I hope that would work as I'd love to try one myself! TFS
