“Hello G45ers, for my October presentation I want to show you how many projects you can make with one paper collection, I chose Midnight Tales and even with all these projects I still have papers for more! I made the following:

  • 1 center piece, altering one stacking circle box

  • 3 Haunted house shaped treat boxes

I made a video tutorial to teach you how to make the adorable haunted houses treat boxes and the place cards, for those projects you’ll need:

Haunted House Treat Boxes & Place Cards by Cecilia Zertuche | Graphic 45




TIP – To hold the treats inside, reinforce the bottom with a piece of chipboard, as shown in the video.



TIP – These houses can be also a tea light lantern, how to put inside the tea light? Using hinges in the roof.



TIP – Use any scrap to make and decorate the place cards, but leave a piece of paper in solid color where to write the name of the guest.


and Warning! With just a few elements you can create fun Napkin holders that  the kids will love, but here’s the warning, when cutting the paper towel tube BE SO CAREFUL!! Mine was really thick and I cut myself so bad that I needed stitches, so please take care or use a tube with thine cardboard.


You’re still on time to create, thank you so much for joining me!!!” ~Cecilia








Happy Papercrafting!
