Hello crafty friends! It’s Svitlana Shayevich from Craftwalks and I’m super excited to be a guest designer today here on the Spellbinders blog. I will be sharing two easy and fun Halloween projects with you.
Even though I live in the USA now I was born and raised in Ukraine and back there we don’t celebrate Halloween. It was an alien holiday for me when I just moved here but it took only a couple of years for me to start loving it. Now Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I’m always excited to play with spooky products.
Halloween House Goodie Box
My first project is a cute spooky house. Which also serves as a goodie box.
When it comes to Halloween colors in home decor mostly I lean towards simple and elegant black and white scheme. Which I used to make this house. Using the box die from the Charming Cottage Box Etched Dies I made two die-cuts out of a white cardstock and adhered them together side by side.
I didn’t assemble the house completely on that point. I just laid it flat so it was more convenient to adhere all elements onto it. Next I die-cut the elements using the Spooky Boo Dies, Spooky Cottage Dies and Charming Cottage Box Dies (to die-cut the roof tiles) out of a black and white cardstock.
Each window and door I die-cut twice – out of a white and black cardstock. After I had all elements ready, I started adhering them onto the box. I scored the tree die-cuts and adhered them onto the box corners. It added interest and allowed more space for other elements on each side.
After all elements were adhered, I assembled the box by gluing together two sides and the bottom. The dies from the collection are spooky but elegant and I think black and white color combo suits them well.

And of course, also you need a Halloween card to go with a goodie box. Which I made in almost the same color scheme, spicing it up a bit by adding more color.
I die-cut spiders and bats using dies from the Spooky Boo Dies and Spooky Cottage Dies out of a gray cardstock. I also die-cut two spiderwebs and 4 spider lines out of a white cardstock. Next, I build the background by adhering spiders, bats, spiderwebs and lines onto a black panel. Which after that I foam mounted onto a white card base.
After that I die cut a vellum panel using a die from the Nested Clipped Panels Dies and words for the sentiment using the Spooky Boo Dies out of a white and orange cardstock. I adhered the words onto the vellum piece. Which in turn was adhered onto the card.
