Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Monster Mash.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with fun projects that are inspired by the spookiest night of the year – Halloween. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
My project today is a fold-flat, no-glue box sized to fit a mini candle from Bath & Body Works!
Here’s a close-up view:
Here’s another view:
And here’s what the box looks like folded flat:
I wish my blog had smell-o-vision – this Pumpkin Apple mini candle smells SO good! I’ll include my measurements below, but here’s a video tutorial I shared previously for a different size:

Today’s card is a holiday card made easy with the Tags & Tidings stamp set!
I love a versatile stamp set! Not only can the Tags & Tidings bundle create 16 tags, but you can also use it for a great background stamp! Talk about quick & easy!
Using the new Small Grid Paper on my Stamparatus, I stamped the background stamp onto the grid paper first. Then I was able to place my Whisper White layer right in the center of the stamp. You can even make marks on the grid paper to make it easy to create multiples!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!
Shaded Spruce card base – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″
Today’s project is a Hexagon Gift Bag that I shared during this week’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live!
Here’s a side view:
And here’s a different angle:
How cool is this gift bag/box?!? I was inspired by Nadine Weiner at StampinClub.de, but didn’t find any measurements on her post, so I came up with my own measurements to maximize paper. You can get 2 of these out of 1 piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock – yay! It takes a half sheet (just like an A2 card) so there’s no waste!
Check out this alternative idea using the Window Box Thinlits (thanks, Kathy Brown for the idea!):
Wouldn’t that be an amazing luminary with a battery-operated tea light?!?
Here’s my video tutorial:
And here’s the template:
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

Score along the 8-1/2″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, and 8″
Rotate clockwise and score along the 5-1/2″ side at 2″
