Popcorn Box Transformation and Giveaway

Once again this year I am participating in the Popcorn Box Halloween Party with Laura Kelly. It is so fun to receive a box of materials and then try to create something from the contents. While we didn't have to use everything (or really anything except the popcorn box), I tried to incorporate a lot of it.

The materials that were in the box

open and cut box
To begin, I flattened the box and cut off the top.

making flaps
Then I cut and scored the box.

This box is the concept I was going for.

covering with paper
Once I had the shape worked out, I covered it in paper. (Halloween digital paper from The Craft Chop)

Then I added the pom-pom ribbon around the top and bottom.

It must have been late at night when it started to go south on me. The cat shapes were really difficult and were taking a lot of stress, so I cut them off. Then I lined the box with the foil from the chocolate bar I was eating (included in the box from World Market - yum). I lined the top with orange ribbon and put the black felt (included) in the bottom of the box.

I even used the paper confetti, it went in the box.

So I just kept covering the box with paper (some of it included). I glued the cat die cut (included and inspiration for the original box concept) on the top, using the die cut pumpkin paper for a border around the cat. I enhanced the cat features with a metallic silver marker. Finally, I added a ribbon tab and a closure made from a magnet. 

I really don't know why I end up creating odd things from a popcorn box. See my last year's submission here. [Halloween Eyes] It is still hanging from our chandelier in the dining room!

Go Back

Hard to believe the end result started as just a popcorn box! Looks awesome!

Looks awesome, Janet! You're so much more creative than I am!

Wow, this is so cool. I love that you thought outside of the box to make a box from a different box. Also, love the bats!

What a great idea Janet! I love your paper choices and the way you used the pom-pom ribbon!

Now that's a transformation! It looks awesome, good job!

Wow! I would have never have know this started as a popcorn box!
