After posting my other Putz house-inspired Halloween box cards on IG, my *cousin asked if I would make one for her mom (also a *cousin, not an aunt) who loves Halloween and haunted houses. When asked she chose black and red, so I dug into stash and then hit a Door Buster sale at JoAnn to round it out.







The recipient was an English teacher for her whole career and is a book lover still, so when I found this spooky bookshelf paper in my stash I knew it was perfect! It took some fussing with a ruler and some settings to get the pieces to cut where the rat was placed well and the shelves cut off in a way I liked.



This one was looking rather stark and maybe a bit too sinister, so I added a few embellishments to lighten/liven it up a bit. Stars and door knobs.



And flattened to fit into the custom envelope.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
