Halloween Treat Containers | CutCardStock Blog Hop

Hello y'all! Welcome to the next stop of the CutCardStock Happy Halloween Blog Hop! You are at Raechelle's blog. :)

Today I'm sharing some super cute and easy to make treat boxes that I created using my Silhouette (all designs are from the Silhouette Design Store). 

Here's a quick tutorial:

Cut selected 3D boxes using your electronic cutting machine. 

Assemble boxes by folding along perforated edges and adding adhesive where needed. 

For  Ghosts add two black eyes using item of choice. I used Nuvo Drops and allowed to dry overnight. 

For pumpkins cut a piece of yellow cardstock to create a glowing effect. Add stem, leaf, and twine. 

My aplogies for the lack of anything for the bat pillow boxes as I somehow overlooked them as I was assembling. 

Once assembled they will look like this:

I used the following cardstocks to create these:

When complete, just fill with treats! These are pefect for co-workers, parties, even trick-or-treaters. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope my project has inspired you to create something fun!

family {CUT to YOU}


Hello all! Raechelle here sharing a decades-old photo featuring the gorgeous new Floral Banner 2 cut file.
I was scrolling through some old photos and came across this gem of our children taken 20 years ago. I must say that I didn't pay much attention to the date until it came time to document it, and I honestly had to do a triple take. No way could this photo have been taken twenty years ago. There is just no way these children are two decades older, but they really are. Just wow. 


Enough on that. Since there are so many colors in the photo, I wanted to empahsize them, but also keep this page light and fresh. Starting with a lighter color to back the larger two florals was a perfect way to keep the focus on the photos. Adding in the pops of color keeps the eye moving around the entire cut file, yet still maintaining a light feel.

A few die cuts, strips of patterned paper, and whimsical wooden butterflies tie everything together and creates movement. Tucking the photo into the beautiful cut file makes this page feel cohesive and as if the photo is blooming out of the banner.

SNOW- Cut to You

Hello! I hope your New Year is getting off to a grand start.
I am so excited to be sharing my first layout as a returning member of the CTY design team! I am thrilled to be back and look forward to sharing inspiration with as well as being inspired by all of you.


My first thought upon seeing the Bo Ho Circles cut file went immediately to snowballs, so I created this fun snow page featuring my granddaughter, Aubree, who I was fortunate to have visited in the Chicago area last January. 

I wanted to add a little extra to the circles with the photos of my granddaughter, so I lightly traced inside the circles where the photos would be placed and used a couple of spray inks to paint around them. I also finished off with  few splatters to add a wee bit more pop.


Completing the layout were a few fussy cut snow creatures and die cuts, along with a few sequins. 


I am looking forward to seeing how you interperet this fun and versatile cut file! You can get this one along with so many more by visiting the CTY shop
Be sure to share your creations on our facebook group, too!
