The next in our series of candy boxes for Halloween, the Mummy.  If you missed the box tutorial, click here.

For the mummy you will use white or cream card stock for you box.  Go ahead and make your money/gift card holder and attach it to the back.  Now that you have that part done, it is time to start ripping paper.  You don’t want this to be perfect and clean cut. The strips don’t all have to be the same size, shape or ripped identically.  After I ripped my paper, I wanted to age them.  I got crazy with one of my favorite products for this type of project.

I love this stuff.  It gives a great distressed look and is really easy to use.  If you want to use this you can get it on Amazon here.  There are lots of color choices, but I really love this one the most.  To distress the paper, simply take your strip and rub the edge against the stamp pad like this:

Do that all the way around, on all four sides.  Continue to do that to all of your strips.  If your fingers aren’t dirty when you are done, you aren’t doing it right. 😉 For the mummy’s eyes I simply cut two 3/4 inch circles and then rubbed them on the distress pad as well to make sure they were the same color as the edging.  After they were dry, I took to black circles that I cut out with a regular hole punch.  Easy enough, right?  Glue the eyes on where you want them first.  You don’t want to forget about them!  Once the eyes are attached to the box, begin gluing your paper strips.  I alternated one on each side of the box.  I also glued them on at a small angle.  I didn’t want them going straight across.

Close up of the eyes and also how I attached the strips of paper.

Do that until he has the amount of coverage you want.  By using the same color paper for the strips as you used for the box, no one will notice if you have a few blank spots.  All you have left to do is add your box of candy, your money/gift card and you have a great, thrifty gift for anyone!

4th of july crafts for kids

PIN IT here.

My kids are counting down the days till July 4th is here and they can go to the parade, enjoy the BBQ and see the fireworks at night.  To add a little sparkle to our house the girls and I made some FireWorks crafts.  This was a low cost craft that was quick and easy as well.

4th of july crafts for kids

You can use what ever supplies you have around your house.  We used

  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Red and blue paper
  • 4th of July themed napkins, you could also use scrapbook paper
  •  Pipe cleaners
  • Tape, scissors

4th of july crafts for kids

We wrapped the toilet paper rolls in the napkins, and then taped them into place.  Next we took half a sheet of paper and made cuts all the way down the side to create a fringe look.  I layered the red on top the blue  then rolled it up and placed it inside the tube.  This makes it look like the firework is going off.  I then taped that into place on the inside of the tube so it would not fall out.

Next add the pipe cleaners.  First we put them in straight but they did not look very good, so then we twisted them around our fingers to give them a spiral look.  We hooked some stars on top with glue and then stuck then into the middle of the firework. Just like that you are DONE, my girls had a lot of fun making these.

Best part is I can toss them after the 4th and not feel bad…. after all we can just make them again next year.
