How cute are these Black Cat Treat Boxes for your Halloween tricksters? I tried out several new-to-me products from Silhouette this month and put together this little box. Using the Chipboard and Adhesive-Backed Cardstock products, I was able to download the black cat treat box template, cut it out from both products, and assemble a sturdy box with some cute colorful accents.
I seriously could not believe how easily the machine cut cleanly through the Chipboard.
Then I just repeated the same cut twice on the cardstock, peeled off the sticker backing and laid it right over all of the chipboard for the black finish. Before overlaying the face, I taped a strip of orange and touches of white over the eyes and nose/ears.
The adhesive-backed cardstock holds it all together – I love that I didn’t have to pull out any sticky glue for the layering. Using the Chipboard and the thick cardstock together really makes for a sturdy box. And the simple eye and ear coloring is the perfect way to bring three dimensional life to this treat box! I had a tiny bit of extra chipboard on just one side (really random), but it was easy to just trim it off with scissors.
From October 15-24, Silhouette is offering a killer product bundle – a whole lot of fun stuff you can experiment with, including the chipboard and adhesive-backed cardstock I used in this project. Also, can I just say “TATOO PAPER”. I didn’t take pictures of my experiments yet, but I was way too excited to find out that I can create my very own temporary tattoos with this paper and my Silhouette!!! AHHH!
