Halloween Themed Fingernail File Holders

Recently while shopping at T.J. Maxx, I found Halloween themed fingernail files and wouldn’t you know, the nail files coordinate with several Stampin’ Up! products.  So of course, I “had” to purchase them!  And naturally added to my project agenda was creating Halloween themed fingernail file holders for gifting to friends.  I settled upon one of my favorite wraps to use for holding the fingernail files – an origami wrap.  Often this design is maybe called chopstick wrap or pencil holder wrap so it’s quite versatile.  As you’ll see in my video below, the Halloween themed fingernail file holders are easy to make and come together quickly.

Fingernail File Holders

Project Materials & Details: 
  • Cutest Halloween Bundle
  • Cute Halloween 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (refer to Assembly Video) 
    • Score one 6″ x 6″ piece of designer series paper at 1-1/2″, 3″ and 4-1/2″. Burnish score lines with bone folder.
    • On the upper right corner, fold the corner in so that it meets the score 4-1/2″ line and use bone folder to crease.  
    • Then on the upper left corner, fold this corner to the middle 3″ score line and crease the fold with the bone folder.
    • On the left lower corner, fold in to the 1-1/2″ score line and crease with bone folder.
    • Next, fold the right side in to the middle and wrap the left side around and attach at the back with strong adhesive. 
  • Layering Circles Dies (used the 2-1/4″ scalloped die & the 1-7/8 circle die)
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
  • Basic White and Highland Heather cardstocks (scrap pieces)
  • Paper Snips (use for fussy cutting images from designer series paper)
  • Cute Stars Adhesive Backed Sequins
  • Tailormade Tag Dies (optional – used for tag on the Bat fingernail file holder)
  • Seal+ Adhesive
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Bone folder

Decorate as desired using images from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper and stamp sentiments from the coordinating Cutest Halloween Stamp Set.  If you prefer, you can also stamp images using the Cutest Halloween Stamp Set.  But as you can see in the video, using the images from the designer series paper makes the project even quicker!

ASSEMBLY VIDEO

In addition to the Halloween themed fingernail files, I also purchased fall themed fingernail files.  Wouldn’t you know, that Stampin’ Up! also has stamps and paper to coordinate with them!!!  For the fall theme, the Nuts About Squirrels Stamp Set provided a perfect finishing touch to the fingernail file holders.

The themed fingernail files and the coordinating holders make perfect “little something” gifts!  I hope you have fun creating them for your friends and family!
