How To Make Boot-iful Halloween Nesting Boxes

Hello there!
Welcome to Chattering Robin's blog.
Michelle here today to share with you 
how to make nesting boxes using 
Halloween cardstock from The Robin's Nest.

I chose the Spooky Eyes Glitter Cardstock &
the Orange Crackle Glitter Cardstock, 
and various selections from TRN EXCLUSIVE Dew Drops line.

The design I used for the boxes with Halloween themed cutouts
 is one from my die-cutting machine.
However any box die or even template will work just fine for this project.
You will also need double sided tape, glue, glitter, ribbon
and ANY Halloween embellishment of choice.

The first box cut was the largest. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE
this cardstock with it's colorful stripes on one side, and polka dots on the other.
For the box body, I chose to use the striped side, for the lid, I used the dot side.
The largest box has a good size pumpkin cut-out design.

I then followed score lines to fold and then secured the box using double sided tape.
I followed the same assembly & fold directions with the medium & small boxes, each having Halloween cut-out designs of a cat and bats.
I had a few leftover cut shapes from my last TRN Halloween themed project, 
and used them as my added embellishments.

I also used halloween themed ribbon from my personal stash, 
as well as a fancy sheer orange flower and black ribbon roses for the box lid, 
and black acrylic flowers with TRN Metallic Dew Drop centers, 
for the medium & small box lids.
Using the TRN Dew Drops, I added interest to the spider bodies.

Without "unboxing" the nesting boxes, I have cute Halloween decor.
With lights out, and un-nested boxes, I add small battery operated tea lights,
to give a "Boo-tiful" Halloween essence, and showing off the cut-out window of each.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed this Halloween project.
