My last post I shared a sneak peak of this Halloween pop-up box. I have used the Ghoulfriends Stamp Set from Paper Smooches along with their Halloween Icon Dies for the main design. These boxes are fun and easy to make. 
I am playing along in the challenge at Paper Smooches with ANYTHING GOES! Their challenge runs from September 21-27th.


Love these little ghouls, they are so cute! 
 The white ghoul was heat embossed with detail white ep onto black paper.  For the green ghoul, it was stamped with lime green pigment ink from ColorBox. A candy corn was put in one hand and "You are faboolous" in the other. The ghoul was embellished with a witches hat and wiggly eyes. These have been attached to the box with acetate which gives movement to all the die cuts and stamped pieces.

I have glued a die cut spiderweb onto one of the dividers in the box to help hide 
the acetate strips. The other die cut spiderweb was attached to the back of the box with a jeweled spider hanging off of it. The Mesh Texture that is stamped on the sides is from Impression Obsession along with the "To Do" List.

When the box is closed it is an A2 size card. I have a few things peeping out from the sides and top for fun!

Thanks for looking!
Have a happy ghoulfriends day!

  1. I love this! Paper smooches is one of my favorite brands, second only to lawn fawn. Jenny showed me the stamp you used to make the side panels. You had me fooled! I totally thought it was just the pattern on the paper :)

  2. What a FUN Halloween pop-up box! Love everything about cute and colorful!

  3. Such fun - and you've packed a lot of it in there!

  4. I totally and completely admire crafters who can do this sort of thing and make the end product sizzle! Great job! Love the colours and the balance here!
