Magnolia Down Under Halloween

Good Morning Everyone,

This is my first week as the lucky Guest DT for November/December with Magnolia Down Under. The DT have come up with some amazing creations to inspire you this week so I hope you'll pop over the the Challenge, take a peek and be inspired to play along.

I've made two Halloween inspired creations this week; the first is actually a Tea Light Holder Card that I adapted to hold two spooky pez-type candy holders. The original card and instructions can be found here at StampARTic.


I've used Witch Tilda holding a broom for this card, the border is punched with a MS Border Star Punch and all pattern papers are from Magnolia.

This is what the inside looks like, with a box (with acetate front panel) included for the candy on one side and a pocket for a tag on the other.

The back is cover with more Magnolia paper and I've used the clear spica pen to make the spiderweb shimmer but it's little hard to see. The same pattern paper covers the spine of the card.


My second creation used the Little Devil Tilda and was inspired by the carton pattern that you can find here at Create4Fun. This box also has an acetate panel and I've filled the box with Jaffas - I just had to keep my husband and the boys away long enough to get the photo!!

Here's a look at the little tags on the top and the Spider Charm.

I'm entering my Halloween inspired creatations in the following challenges:-

Cute Card Thursday - So Transparent!
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Purple and Black
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Sweet Treats with a Twist
