Tim Holtz Ideaology spooky box

This project was the spookiest and most fun I’ve had in ages! To make your own gather some of the fabulous new Tim Holtz Halloween goodies. Wrap a paper box in paper. Paint the lid gold. Add PPA (affiliate links used – PPA is a fave and available at Ellen Hutson, Simon Says Stamp, and more) and get wild!


Start with a few big pieces…


add a few more…


and then once you have the big pieces put in place, add little details!

My “creepy” girl was altered by simply applying some orange paint that I wiped off, and then the same with gold. Just acrylic dabber paint from Ranger – no big thing. The black on the edges of the lid is just archival ink. While this project looks super intense and like a ton of work you’d be surprised how fun, quick, and easy these come together! I’m going to be sharing a video post of my process next month so that those of you who want the step-by-step process can see just how easy it can all be.

This has become a part of my décor for this year – I simply can’t part with it! It makes for a fun little addition and boy did I have a good time. Things are sure spooooky around here…

Looking to shop? I’ve got you covered – and thank you in advance to those who use my affiliate links used below. Costs nothing extra – just helps me keep the lights on and the free content coming! BlueMoonScrapbooking, Ellen Hutson, and Scrapbook.com carry most if not all of the supplies I used, and so does Simon Says Stamp.

  2. MAYYYYY! I just had such an enjoyable spin through your blog! What insanely clever things you’ve been up to! I adore this box and love how masterfully you combined all those great embellies on the top. It made it look like the girl was in the middle of an epic and beautiful treasure hunt of Halloween goodies! I also adore the cards you’ve been making (as usual) and how you incorporate that fabulous whimsical stitching. Thanks for continuing to inspire and innovate!
