How to adapt the Stampin’ Up! Tombstone Treat Boxes into a Haunted House Box.
This adorable Haunted House box is perfect to fill with treats and gift to your family, friends, or co-workers for Halloween! This house is actually the Tombstone Treat Box from Stampin’ Up!, but with just a few modifications, it becomes a spooky cute house to fill with yummy ghosts! Below is a video tutorial and a PDF project sheet with all the dimensions and supplies. But first, let’s take a closer look at what is inside the box!
Our Haunted House box hides another surprise inside – the greeting pops out at you when you open the box!
The Haunted House lid holds the greeting down, but once it comes off… up it pops!
This owl die is SO cute! It is from the Frightful Tags Dies which can be purchased separately or as part of a bundle with the Frightfully Cute stamp set for a 10% savings. I share a simple trick in the video below on how to make his yellow eyes and orange beak.
The panels on the “door” are embossed with the timber 3D embossing folder and the “doorknob” is one of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. The fence die and one of the label dies cut in half from the Frightful Tags Die set makes a perfectly “spooky” balcony.
At the very bottom of the box, under the candy, there is a another hidden message – Happy Halloween to you!
This is the pop up message. The witch’s hat from the Frightful Tags dies is super cute when cut from the Black Glitter Paper!
Shhhh, don’t tell! Here is the secret to our pop up – a 7/8″ piece of Window Sheet, adhered with Tear & Tape. The Window Sheet is bendable but never loses it’s stiffness – so it will always “POP”.
