Halloween gift box challenge


Hello there lil’ spooks! :) I’m so happy you have stopped by! Did you bring me candy?….

Today I have a fun little challenge with a GIVEAWAY for you all! The fabulous Lori Whitlock created some fun Halloween goodie boxes for you all to download for FREE! You will have to download them from her blog, so head to to snag ‘em! It would be nice to leave a comment on her blog saying thank you! :) Or, stop by her Facebook page to say hello! She has a Halloween freebie up right now, too! Whoo-hoo!

Don’t know who Lori is? Well, check out her ABOUT ME on her blog! In short, she is amazingly talented! Once in awhile you see her name pop up on some Echo Park paper kits! She designed one of my favorite Echo Park lines, ‘For the Record’.. There is also ‘Happy Days’… and most recently, ‘Seasons Greetings’! (she has done more, but those are my favs!) She has fabric coming out soon (whoo-hoo!) AND she designs and sells digital cutting files! She has a few listed in her shop on her blog HERE and TONS in the Silhouette store! Just search for Lori Whitlock! You will be glad you did!

The download includes an SVG and DXF file for each box. Use either the ghost OR the cobweb giftbox.. or both, if you’d like! You can keep them simple, or go totally all out! It’s up to you, as long as at least one of these boxes is used on your project!

I plan to make a ghost box very soon (things have been crazy here so I didn’t get time just yet) but for now I will share the CUTE spiderweb box. This was just a basic box,  and see all the cute stuff I did to it? I did enlarge it so it’s bigger than ‘actual size’






Like it?… All the cutting files are created by Lori Whitlock EXCEPT the 3D spider. I did that with circles and thin strips for ‘legs’ super easy to do! I  also made the box lid a bit different by creating a circle to go over the top.. In SCAL I created a circle over the cobweb after I ‘broke apart’ the box and kept the web part. Super easy and gives it a different look! I inked my edges, added lots of small black eyelets and used my Epiphany Crafts Shape Tools to make the button and accent the ‘O’s’ in ‘Boo’. I had a lot of fun with it and I hope it inspires you and gets you excited for the challenge, but.. not too excited.. because that would just be weird. Don’t need ya hoppin’ around with your tongue hangin’ out and drooling all over your project or anything…


Now.. on to the GIVEAWAY! Lori has created this adorable cutting file bundle to go to one lucky winner! How CUTE are these? You can bet I will be using these in some upcoming projects! She has such a cute style, eh?…


Also included in the prize is a 6×6 pad of Echo Park’s Season’s Greetings! (Designed by Lori!)

  3. Corri Garza says:

    This is so cute Tamara! I love it and I’m definitely going to play along. I have a funny story for you…me and my 4 year old daughter were watching your witches had video and you called yourself a “messy crafter”. This am we were crafting and she said “I am sure am a messy crafter….just like that girl on the video”. I thought it was so cute!

    • Happy Life, Crafty Wife says:

      LOL, Corri.. That is too funny! Egh.. I make the worst videos! I need a studio set up in here, or something! Anyhow, can’t wait to see what you do with the boxes.. I know it will be great!

  4. Thienly says:

    Your spider box is a great inspiration project! Love the web – the eyelets, the way you cut them out of a circle… and the banner and the paper you chose… and the spider! and I don’t even like spiders! lol… No promises, but I will hope to join in your challenge, ’cause you and Lori are both FABULOUS!

  5. Melanie F says:

    Um, yeah, how you decorated this Box is AMAZING! Love every bit of it! I am hoping to join in the challenge – does it go until Wednesday this week?

  6. Well, I wanted to enter but couldn’t get the box to load in my Silhouette. I don’t have my SCAL right now because that computer is in the shop. Is there any way to get it to cut on my Silhouette?
    Very cute project!! I hope you will do more of these.
    xoxo, Christine
