Next up is another gorgeous Steampunk Spells altered box that's just perfect for Halloween. Here is Miranda's gorgeous altered dresser box. This pretty creation has lots of mini drawers that are perfect for housing little candy treats! This is another fabulous use of the Nevermore paper from Steampunk Spells. The alluring mix of the gorgeous vintage-inspired papers with festive Halloween embellishments give this box such a timeless look. You can have so much fun with Steampunk Spells this Halloween! The gorgeous saturated colors, whimsical designs and fun sentiments offer endless possibilities for Halloween crafts! Here is what Miranda had to say about this enchanting work of art!

"Yes yes, I have created another Steampunk Spells project! Can you blame me? Lol, these papers are amazing! I wanted to create some sort of “treat box” and after lots of thinking, I decided on this! You could use different sized matchboxes to house all kinds of candy! Your kids will love it! And its as easy as gluing some boxes together, then finding a little “home” for them! I wanted to stick with a cream and black theme, I LOVE all the colors of this line, but this color combo is always a classic. " -Miranda

LOVE the treat box!! So inventive! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

What fun creations. Love how you can see the box change before your very eyes. Adds to the spooky effect. Super Awesome.

Wow wow wow!! These are absolutely fabulous!!!!!

What a cute way to celebrate Halloween!

After all of the colorful Steampunk Spells projects the cream/black project is so different and just beautiful.

Wow, amazing Halloween boxes! Spooky inspiration! Thanks!

Cool memory game. I need that! The candy box looks intense. Lots of boxes to make. Great job on the decorating.

I can never get tired of the Steampunk Spells design line, so keep the projects coming. If I had to pick my favorite (which would be a very difficult task) paper pattern, it would have to be Steampunk Spells. Perhaps it is because Halloween is my favorite holiday. In fact, I just finished my Halloween cards yesterday and, of course, I used G45 paper!!!
