Halloween Shadowbox Bat Card Tutorial

Hi my sweet friends! Today, I'm sharing a tutorial on how to make this spooky little Shadowbox Bat Card that I created with a fantastic Lori Whitlock cutting file (links below). It makes the cutest card for Halloween! What a great way to let someone know you're thinking of them around the holiday.

To get started, I cut out all of the base pieces first and laid them out on my craft table.

Then I adhered the pattern paper to the base card, making sure to keep the design going the right direction. I learned this the hard way when I glued my hearts upside down. 😊

Next, I added the black bat pieces to the white card stock ...

I embellished the bat's eyes with some sparkly gold gems. Then, I added a cute spider icon sticker (from Doodlebug's Sweet & Spooky Collection) to the white spider space just below the bat's wing.

Once all of the pieces were adhered, I slipped the white page tabs into the base card slots and glued the black base on to create a box.

I love how Lori’s box cards can stand alone to be displayed on a shelf, desk, or a counter AND ... also fold flat for tucking into envelopes and mailing. So fun!
