The Mischievous Collection by My Mind’s Eye is one of those paper lines that you have got to love! With a nice vintage feel, perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving or even a variety of other themes (although some of the elements are good only for Halloween), you will find it to be the perfect choice for your projects.
Today we have created a series of projects to highlight the beauty of this collection. We have put together a free video tutorial and pdf handout for BOTH the small popcorn box, and the scalloped treat bag. The Lollypop box is a Paper Crafter’s Library exclusive available as a Silhouette cut file, or as a downloadable PDF to Paper Crafter’s Library members only. All the projects are simple yet elegant, and can easily be adapted to other holidays.
We are also giving away the My Mind’s Eye Mischievous Collection pack you see pictured above to ONE lucky winner…..more details on how to enter at the end of this post!
This cute simple popcorn box uses a silhouette cut file. You can find it under the search for “Mini Popcorn Box“. Paired with the Mischievous Chipboard element pumpkin and paper, a little Pearl Glimmer Mist, Rock Candy Stickles and Stardust Stickles, you have the perfect recipe for a fast and beautiful halloween/thanksgiving favor box. You can watch the free video and download the handout from HERE. There are two parts to the video – the first shows you how to manipulate the file in your Silhouette Studio Software and then sent it to the printer, the second part shows the assembly and decoration of the box.
If dies are more your thing, then you will love pairing this little Scalloped bag with the My Mind’s Eye Mischievous paper line. With one pass of your die machine, and half a piece of the patterned paper, you will have the pieces for this adorable bag. Add with that the Tim Holtz Tattered Banners and Mini Rosette die, and you have everything you need for your next get-together. Other things used: Distress ink in Walnut Stain, Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves (last two part of the Tim Holtz seasonal limited edition), Chipboard Mischievous elements, Dimensionals Pearls in Espresso and Gold Pearl, Glimmer Mist in Pinecone and Raven, and some Hook and Loop closures by Tombow.
