Off-the-Page with Midnight Tales Halloween Candy Dishes
By Kristine Woods
“The September challenge is an off-the-page project and I have a project for you just in time for Halloween. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Midnight Tales collection and thought it would be fun to make a home decor piece. Today, I’m going to share with you how I turned the Graphic 45 stacking circle box set into candy dishes.
I really love the Midnight Tales collection because of the purples throughout the pages. Purple is my favorite color so you’ll see a lot of purple on the large circle box in the tutorial below. For the small box, I used one of the pieces from the die cut assortment to make a buckle-like band for the bottom portion.
The “Trick or Treat” chipboard piece is the perfect accessory for the top of the candy dish. It is popped up onto a triangular piece of the paper to give it dimension. The Diamond Stickles give the black roses some sparkle, and I also added it to the pumpkin images on the top of the box.
The inside is decorated with border strips around the lip and paper from the collection on the top and bottom.
For the larger circle box, I really wanted to make it stand out so I made a witches hat for the top of the box lid! It features lots of fussy cut images from the collection, along with the gorgeous Graphic 45 roses in black and purple. Check out the tutorial below to see how I made my witch hat candy dish.” ~Kristine
