Gettin' my Spook On

Howdy, I hope all of you are doing well! 
I have a fun design team share today for The Cutting Cafe featuring one of my favorite files for the fall season. 

I used it to create 3 Halloween Milk Cartons for my grown trick-or-treaters (aka my kids and DIL). There are 8 designs included in this set which makes it an awesome deal and gives you several creative options. I chose the bat, witch's hat and ghost for my cartons and this has become my favorite way to give each of them something sweet at Halloween. :)

(sentiment is from the Coffin Treat Box below)

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut each carton from cardstock and added designer papers from my stash to the carton as well as Ranger's Liquid Pearls (which I love!). If you don't have an electronic cutting machine that's ok as there is a PDF file included with the set. 

When I cut the carton out I saved the negative image of the ghost and used it on top of the carton (which you can see above). I placed a piece of white cardstock behind the cut out image, added googly eyes and outlined the ghost with Frosted Lace Stickles by Ranger. The BOO sticker is a remnant from an old Martha Stewart Halloween advent calendar that's been in my stash quite a while. For this carton I used a 12 x 12 sheet of Recollections embossed polka dot paper just for fun. 

Designer paper on the remaining 3 sides adds a bit of pizzazz and the Liquid Pearls make it pop. I outlined each bat with Purple Stickles. Can you guess the candy inside?

Again, I used the negative image (this time the bat) and added it to the top of my carton. I punched two holes and run the micro polka dot ribbon through and tied it in a bow. The circular R. I. P. sentiment is from the Coffin Treat Box...Template-Cutting File and I added a paper bottle cap image to the center and surrounded it with Orange Liquid Pearls. It's attached with orange/white twine by Studio G.

The negative image of the witch's hat was attached to a Halloween straw and I printed out a sentiment from the 3 Halloween Shaker Card Templates and Cutting Files. I also used a candy corn sentiment from the Candy Corn Treat Box set and added it to the ribbon closure. Pumpkin Liquid Pearls add a nice border to my milk carton and highlight the witch's hat as well.

I added some acetate designer paper to the back of the hat image and outlined it with Purple Stickles. An orange Goosebump gem adds more sparkle. :)

Don't forget that Regina also offers paper crafting supplies - paper, ribbon, embellishments, acrylic stamps, etc. - at The Cutting Cafe Shop and she has some CUTE paper pads for Halloween and Fall in stock. Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th to see more inspiration featuring Halloween Milk Cartons and Shaker Cards by the design team. You could win 3 FREE SETS from TCC if you leave a comment on the DT post. Good Luck!

See ya soon!

These are the cutest Lisa! I love that you still give your kids treats for Halloween. My Mother In Law always did things like this for us. It's a memory I cherish.

Very nice halloween cartons. I like that you used black paper to bring out the shape cutouts.
