Halloween Candy Box Tutorial by Bobbi Smith
Hi everyone, Bobbi here. With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to make a fun Halloween candy box for little treats.
￼To start off with I die cut some medium weight chipboard out of the Eileen Hull- Candy Drawer Box die #657726. I used three colors of distress paint to create this effect Black Soot, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn.
For this third layer of paint I used the black soot and I wanted the applicator portion to be very dry so I soaked up a little bit of excess paint with a paper towel.
I wanted a very streaky look so I only applied a little bit around the edges barely dragging it across the chipboard. Then I dried with the heat tool again.
The stamps that I used out of the set were the spider, the professor, the bottles and the equation from Tim Holtz Mini Halloween 4 CMS198. I stamped on all 4 sides of the drawer.
I used jet black archival ink for the stamping. I used sticky note and taped off any of the sides didn’t that I didn’t want the excess stamping to get on.
To use the wishbone as a charm, I had to create a hole in the end of it. I took my piercing tool and a small piece of foam that comes in the Texture Fades (you know the little piece that you usually throw away) to pierce the hole.
The swivel clasp and the monocle each come with an O ring at the end of them, so I had an extra O-ring to use for the wishbone to attach to the swivel clasp. I attached the swivel clasp to the clock key on the top of the box.
