Halloween Cupcake Boxes!

At our annual convention this year, I taught a class using our new Party Products! I just love parties! And I love decorating and creating an atmosphere of FUN! So this week, I'm going to share the Halloween Party theme and some of the new products I used!
Our new Designer Creations Cupcake Box comes in a 2-pack for only $5.95. It is made of sturdy kraft cardstock and embossed with white diamonds and includes an insert to hold your cupcake in place!

The cool thing about the white embossed diamonds is they resist ink while the kraft paper absorbs ink! For my Halloween Boxes, I used a sponge and black ink and just rubbed the ink into the box. As you can see, the diamonds stay white, but the box turns black!

I used our fabulous Artbooking and Artiste Cricut Cartridges to create these images on the boxes - so easy!

The spider webs, fence, cat, and haunted house are from the Artbooking cartridge pgs. 70-71.

The Trick or Treat came from Artbooking pg. 55. And the spiders on the web came from our Artiste cricut cartridge pg. 77.

Inside each of these boxes I placed an electronic votive candle to turn these into luminaries at the party! When your guests are ready to leave, you can remove the votive and place a cupcake or treat inside to send home with them!

I used my new Cricut Explore to cut these images. I LOVE the intricate detail this new machine allows! I also use some of our new Purple, Black and Grey Glitter Paper to add a little sparkle! As well as a black bubble on the back of the spider for added dimension and creepiness and a bitty bubble for the door knob on the house!

Even if you aren't hosting a Halloween Party, these would make a great display on the mantel or by the candy bowl at the front door! Want to give it a try? Here are the products I used:

Happy Creating!
