Spooky Fun Baker’s Box

Happy Halloween!  Tomorrow is the spookiest day of the year!  We have over 100 trick-or-treaters every year, and we love it.  We’re all stocked up on candy, so put on your costume and come on by our house!

This is our last Halloween project for this year.  We made this Baker’s Box as our bonus project in my Cards & More classes this weekend.

I made this cute little Halloween card to send to my friend, Vikki.  When it’s closed, the characters all line up so that you only see the mummy, but when it’s open, you can see all the little trick or treaters!

Spooky Fun Side Step

My Stamp Club members were so excited to make this card!  It’s called a side-step card, and I have instructions below.  It’s a lot easier than it looks!

There are dies to make this type of card, but I think it’s much better to customize your card to fit your stamps and dies.

For example, I was doing this card for a class, and needed to be frugal with my Designer Series Paper.  I wanted to use a piece that was 2″ X 4″, so I could get several from one sheet of 12″X12″ paper with no waste.  This meant I wanted the left front portion of my card to measure 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.  My measurements and instructions are for my card, but you can change them to suit your own needs.

Step 1:  Put your card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″) into the paper trimmer at 2 1/4″.

Starting at the top, cut from 1″ down to 6 1/4″.

Step 2:  Flip card over and turn it so the cut that is 1″ from the edge is on the left.  Score on the 3 1/4″ side at 1″ (this lines up with the end of your cut), 2″, 3 1/4″, 4 1/4′ (score this one all the way across the card), and 6 1/4″ (this lines up with the other end of the cut).

Step 3:  Hold the card with the 2 1/4″ side on the left, and the 1″ score line at the bottom right.  Fold the right side of the card back on the 1″ score line, forward on the 2″ score line, back on the 3 1/4″ score line, forward on the 4 1/4″ score line and back on the 6 1/4″ score line (accordion style).  The left side will fall into place and fold in the center.
