It's my favorite time of the year! Michelle here from Michelle's Party Plan-It and I'm a Halloween addict! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the costumes, decorations and of course, the crafting. I've been known to plan a Halloween party or two, so when I saw the latest dies from Tim Holtz's Halloween line, I knew I had to create some fun party boxes.
I'm also an avid zombie movie and TV show fan. I even planned a Zombie Party last year for the season premier of one of my favorite TV shows. So, it's no surprise that I created a fun Zombie Popcorn Box for this month's project.
Let's get started!
For this Zombie Popcorn Box, you will need the following supplies:
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Multi-purpose Platform
- Standard Cutting Pads
- Lost Zombie Bigz Die
- Twisted Edge Thinlits Die
- Gothic Gate Thinlits Die
Other Supplies Used:
- Scrapbook paper
- Popcorn box
I started by tracing the flattened popcorn box on some spooky background scrapbook paper. I then cut and glued the paper on all sides of the popcorn box to set the scene.
Starting with the Gothic Gate, I created a Sizzix sandwich for the Thinlits. The sandwich for Thinlits is as follows: Multipurpose Platform on Tab 2, Cutting Pad, Scrapbook Paper, Thinlits and a second Cutting Pad. Then I passed the sandwich through the Big Shot.
I just love how intricate the Thinlits are!
I repeated the process with the Twisted Edge Thinlits and cut three die cuts. Because this is an Edge Thinlit, I cut along the bottom of the die cut so I can add it to my popcorn box.
Moving on to the Zombie, I made a Sizzix Sandwich with the Lost Zombie Bigz die. The sandwich recipe for Bigz die is; Cutting Pad, Bigz Die, paper and a second Cutting Pad. Then I passed it through the Big Shot.
To make Zombie, I die cut three Zombies; one in green for the body, one in tan for the shirt and one in brown for the pants. I then trimmed the tan and brown zombies to make the clothes. Next, I inked the edges to give it a tattered dirty look.
Next, I glued the Gothic Gate die cut to the corner of the popcorn box and glued the Lost Zombie to the edge of one corner.
I then glued the Twisted Edge die cuts to the inside of the popcorn box, so they creeped out over the top. I also added one to the bottom of the popcorn box so all four sides had detail.
And that's it! What do you think? I love it and can't wait to make more for our upcoming Halloween party!
