Halloween Box

Hello! I've been busy crafting! My girlfriend's 17 year old daughter is very crafty and very talented at art in general. She loves decorative tape right now. She and I were talking about decorative duct tape and I asked her if she had seen the decorative packaging tape at Michael's. She said she hadn't so since we are going back home soon, I thought I'd surprise her with a box of goodies. Not only does Michael's have decorative Christmas packaging tape but I found a teenager "Whatever" packaging tape on clearance and thin decorative tape in the dollar section there. She is going to love it!

I started with the box that contained the soap dispensers from IKEA. (See last post)

I covered it in retired Halloween paper from Stampin' Up using Modge Podge. Then I tied a pretty ribbon from last year's Christmas Sundance Catalog collection. Added a tag too.

I took some raffia ribbon to tie the tape rolls together and tied the tag to that. There was a little space left in the box, so I added a pair of Target's Dollar Spot Halloween gloves and some Oreo snack packs.

I used an old cereal box to cut a piece of cardboard for the tag. Modge Podged the reverse side of the Halloween paper onto it and used Target's Dollar Spot's (Last year, they have the letters this year too) letter A and Halloween chipboard cat decoration. Added more of the pretty ribbon and tied it on.

I'm working on a few more things here and hope to have them done soon. I'm waiting for some things to come in the mail to finish them. Hope you're enjoying the fall day! It's pretty here in Chicagoland!

What a cute package of goodies. You are so creative! I love the little tag with the black cat and was looking at it closely to see if I could 'borrow' your idea for my October artist trading card :o)
