Spooky Treat Box


I am so excited about today's project! There were about 10 other things I should have been working on yesterday, but I just HAD to work on this idea. I bought this egg box last spring and never really knew what I wanted to do with it ~ until I found these fun little Martha Stewart test tubes at Michael's the other day.

I painted the edges, bottom and lid of the box with black acrylic paint & then covered each side with paper. Although I don't need the lid with the test tubes, I decided to decorate it anyway to use the box for something else later on. Once the box was covered with pattern paper, I used my Martha Stewart Goop punch to punch out the olive green border around the top. I also added googly eyes inside the O's.

The holes in the insert were much too large, so I cut a piece of pattern paper and punched out the 1 3/8" circles with a punch. Next I punched a 1" hole (which is the size of the test tube) from black cardstock. Using my scallop circle punch upside down, I lined up the 1" hole in the center & punched out the scallop. I attached the scallop circle piece over the pattern paper & now the holes are the perfect size for the test tubes!

The little tags for each test tube were made with the Spooked stamp set by Lizzie Anne Designs ~ I love that set!

Supplies Used: Stamps ~ Lizzie Anne Designs (Spooked Stamp set & Happy Halloween single); Ink ~ SU, Copics & Palette; Cardstock, Pattern Paper, Punches and Ribbon ~ SU; Goop Punch & test tubes ~ Martha Stewart at Michael's; Die cut letters ~ Alphalicious by Cuttlebug; Nestabilities; Egg box ~ Papertrey Ink.
