2014 Halloween Popcorn Box Blog Hop Party and Giveaway

My dear friend, Laura Kelly, has organized a Halloween Blog Hop Party! I am thrilled to be participating this year. The challenge was to take a plain popcorn box and decorate it however you want! Of course, mine had to include washi tape, my favorite crafting supply!

Supplies needed: (contains affiliate links)

 To start, you will take your plain popcorn box and trace each side onto patterned paper.

I used two different papers. One for the sides and one for the front and back.

Trace and cut out patterned paper

Attach the patterned paper to your popcorn box using collage pauge. You can also use any other kind of decopauge glue or even regular glue.

Cut out a pumpkin shape with your Cricut Explore. You could also cut out a pumpkin shape by hand if you don’t have a cutting machine.

On the top pumpkin shape, cover the entire shape with washi tape.

Then, turn your pumpkin shape over and trim the excess washi tape. I like to use an X-acto knife but you can also use scissors.

Glue the shapes together.
