Wow! I can’t believe it’s Thursday again already! Time sure flies these days! For my Thurs project, I decided to go off page again…I seem to be doing that a lot lately! With Halloween around the corner, I figured I’d do a super quick and easy tutorial for an altered/upcycled treat box and matching card. Here’s how it turned out:

 

treat box step 7

 

I started with the packaging left over from my phone’s silicone protective cover. I took out the insert and used it for the base of my tag which later becomes a bookmark for my kiddos once they’ve opened their treats. I cut a notch at the top where the display hook opening is so I can attach ribbon, fibers and trim and still close the case:

I covered both sides of the insert with patterned paper. I decided not to decorate this part further because the wrapped candy will be rubbing against the purple side and I didn’t want the other side to be too bulky to close. I then decorated the outside of the case w/the fabulous CE chippies which I altered with Distress paint, acrylic paint and Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal.

Lastly, I created a card to match using more CE laser cut chipboard pieces.
