Halloween Gift Box Wrap

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Halloween Box Wrap Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp 2

Hello, my lovely blog friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our challenge theme is "IT'S A WRAP". I was inspired to wrap two Halloween gift boxes using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Halloween Vignette Boxes and Tops, and decorated them with Idea-Ology Paper Doll Ancestors and Halloween Quote Chips.

This is a simple and fun project that is great for children to play together and it's easy to make many boxes at once for many friends. The boxes are quite small so it's perfect for some candies or small Halloween gifts. I first covered the Vignette boxes on the top with pieces of pattern paper that I cut from the Tim Holtz Halloween paper stash. The size of the paper was cut just the same as the box. I folded the Idea-Ology Halloween Vignette Box Tops and wrapped the Vignette Boxes.

I tied the boxes with the raffia, then attached the paper dolls on the boxes using foam tabs. The metal Halloween Adornments and Quote Chips were also tied on the raffia with the hemp cord. I randomly applied some Distress Paints on the box using a brush pen. As the final touch, I outlined the paper dolls and the edges of the boxes with a Faber Castell black pen to finish off this project.

Mixed Media Art Journal Stencils Adventure

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Art Journal Simon  Says Stamp Dies Tim Holtz Stencils Brave Adventure Journey 1
Hello, my beautiful crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge this week. I hope you all had great time during the weekend. Our theme for this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "USE MORE THAN ONE STENCIL". Of course you can choose to use store bought stencils or make your own. 

I was inspired to create a mixed media art journal with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Mosaic, Harlequin and Simon Says Stencil Leafy Frame Sending Sunshine for the patterns on the background.

To start this art journal page, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain with various colors over the Tim Holtz Layering Stencils Mosaic and Harlequin for the background patterns. For the leave patterns around the left side of the page, I dabbed Tim Holtz Distress Paint Mustard Seed over the Simon Leafy Frame stencil then traced the leave pattern with a green color pencil.

The metal embellishments were colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paints. I die cut the butterflies and a  bicycle using Simon Says dies and Big Shot. All these embellishments were attached on the page with Tombow Glue.

To finish off the project, I added some sentiments with Idea-Ology Quotations Stickers.

I am looking forward to seeing it.
