Sweet Hauntings Self-Closing Treat Box – 2015 Freaky Friday Project #1

selfClosingBoxHalloween

It is time for the first of my 2015 “Freaky Friday” Halloween series. This is a self-closing box that is all gussied up for Halloween treat-giving. I’ve started to see these types of boxes popping up on Pinterest and other photo galleries. They are great because they can easily be opened and closed without tearing up the box. Here is the video tutorial:

Flower Pot Photo Holder Tutorial Video

These are really quick and easy little photo holders that I came up with. I’ve been looking for a cute photo holder to buy without much luck, and paper flowers seem to be all the rage right now, so I thought I would try to make my own cute photo holder. You can also use these to hold and display cards or other paper craft projects. I hope you enjoy the video tutorial! Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Fancy Flower punch, 5-petal flower punch, flower designer brad, Rose Red cardstock (one piece big enough to punch a 5-petal flower, plus a piece measuring 4″ x 1″ and another piece measuring 2 1/2″ x 1/2″), Tempting Turquoise cardstock (one piece big enough to punch a 5-petal flower), Island Oasis DSP (one piece big enough to punch a Fancy Flower), Paper Clip, Mini Flower Pot, pebbles or marbles, wooden skewer, glue dots, sticky strip, dimensionals.

Business Card Holder

Open Business Card Holder

This is a little business card holder I designed. I made 2 different sizes. The one in the video is 1/4″ thick and can hold 12 or 13 business cards. The other one I designed is 1/2″ thick and will hold about 25 business cards. The video for the smaller one is below, and measurements for both are under the video. If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks for looking!

For the small box that I made in the video, you will need a piece of cardstock that measures 6 1/2″ x 4 1/16″. You will need to score it on the 6 1/2″ side at 2″, 2 1/4″, 4 1/4″, and 4 1/2″. You will need to score it on the 4 1/16″ side at 1/4″ on both ends. The designer series paper measures 3 1/2″ x 1 7/8″.

For the larger box (that is 1/2″ thick), you will need a piece of cardstock that measures 7″ x 4 9/16″. You will need to score it on the 7″ side at 2″, 2 1/2″, 4 1/2″, and 5″. You will need to score it on the 4 9/16″ side at 1/2″ on both ends. The designer series paper measures 3 1/2″ x 1 7/8″.
