Halloween In Wonderland with Lori

Hi Everyone!  I hope you have enjoyed your Summer and are ready to start preparing for some holiday projects!

Today I have for you a  configuration box using Idea-ology Vignette Boxes and Graphic 45’s Hallowe’en In Wonderland paper and sticker collection.


To begin, I chose 4 designs of the paper, measured and cut paper to fit inside the 3 largest boxes and also to fit  the flat side of the smallest box. I also cut strips of paper to wrap around 3 sides of each box and the insides to each box.  I find that these boxes vary a bit in size, so it is best to measure each of the boxes as you go so that you get the paper measured and cut to fit.  I sponged all the paper pieces in this project with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink.


Top box: the inside is lined with 3 of the playing cards, just choose the 3 you like best.  I used strips of chipboard, placed them on the back of each card so that I could add dimension within the box.  Glue the 3 cards into place.

Largest box: I cut the image out to fit, added Bazzill Tangerine Blast brads around the outside of the box. I cut off the prongs as I wanted only the circle to embellish the sides of this box.  Next, I sponged a strip of cheesecloth with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I wanted this to look a little bit grungy.  I glued this into the box, added a bit of shredded paper and the a pumpkin from the Idea-ology Pumpkin Pieces in the right hand corner. I also added a couple skeleton head beads around the pumpkin.

Smallest box: I covered it and them cut out the Hallowe’en in Wonderland playing card.  Added a strip of chipboard to the back and glued it to the box.  I added some of the word stickers from the sticker sheet.

For the final box, I used one of the stickers from the sticker sheet, added chipboard and placed it in the box to give dimension.  I cut out the cat, witch and pumpkins and glued them to the box.  These also add great dimension to the project.

Once all of the boxes are done, I glued them together into the configuration in the photos.  I used Scotch liquid glue to hold them all together.

Using a Wink of Stella Brush in Shimmer Orange, I added detail to some of the orange areas.  This adds a nice sparkle in just the right places! It’s hard to tell in the pics, but the shimmer is there!  I also found the little spider in my stash, added some black stickles to him to make him sparkle. Yes, spiders have to sparkle too!

This completes my Hallowe’en In Wonderland configuration box project.  I hope you like it and if you want to create one come see us at the store and we will help you find all of the supplies!

See you at my next post!
