I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Spooky Challenge

Crafty Cardmakers is having a spooky challenge this week and I have made this altered Halloween box for the challenge.  I am going to use this Halloween box for my Halloween treats for the little trick or treaters coming to my door. 

The box was originally a boot box that I made a collage of a selection of Halloween napkins and scrapbook paper  to make the pattern.  I also added a lock, keys and a skeleton head to the top.  
I added lights to the inside of the skelton head so that the eyes would glow. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative month.  Pop over to our challenge blog to view the inspiring projects of our design team. 


  1. Oh my gosh, Judy. This is fantastic. I love it. Especially the skeleton head. I wish I could see the eyes glow. I wish I could be there for you to hand out the candy. You are the mixed media queen. [Bunny]
