Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Paint a copy lid box that measures 17 3/4" x 11 3/4". Use black acrylic ink. While drying cut out characters and print papers needed.
Print two sheets of the Damask background paper from the JT Imagine art cartridge and place inside back of box. I inked the seams with a black ink pad. Cut a 8.9 square of the checker pattern from the Vintage Papers colors and patterns cartridge. Cut in half and trim as needed to fit in box. This will be the floor tiles. Use two 12" x 4" strips of grey paper as wainscoting. use 1/4 in strips of black paper as the trim.
Cut out characters at suggested sizes and attached using Fun foam at different heights. I ran fun foam through my Xyron to make them stick. Use pictures to help you place them.
To make Garland I cut a strip of string twice the length of the box. Find the middle and glue it to the back of a skeleton head. go 1 1/2 inches and glue two rhinestones together to form a ball. Do two more rhinestones each 2" apart. Then go 1 1/2" again and glue another skull. Build out from both sides. You should have five skeleton heads when done. The ends should have a rhinestone ball on each end. Attach to inside of box, trim extra with a rhinestone.
Attach chandelier using the 1" circle. Cut a slit a little over half way and slide the chandelier loops through and spread like a brad and attach.
What makes the cuts really nice is the embellishments. Be sure to add rhinestones, stickles and glitter !
From Moveable Monsters cut out and assemble the Bride @ 2.25 ", Dracula @ 4", Zombie (minus the head) @ 2", Zombie flipped (minus the head) @ 2", Witch flipped @ 4" and a skeleton @ 1.5", and 5 skeleton heads @1.5 ". From Home Decor cut 2 chandeliers @ 3" and glue together. Cut out a 1 " circle from Cricut Craft Room Basics. From A Frightful Affair, cut out Spider web and spider(relative size) flipped@ 2", Spider web and spider(relative size)@ 2.5", cut out the phrase Happy Halloween @ 1", the three pumpkins plus one extra at 2.5" from orange glitter paper. Cut out Obama's head found in Cricut Craft Room @ 1.25" and trim off parts not needed buy hand. Cut out Romney's @ 1.25 and trim not needed. Then I lightly attached the heads to a hard piece of cardboard and coated them with Glossy Accents to resemble rubber masks. You will need to let them dry over night. Cut the door @ 8.5" and cut the threshold off.
