3-D Paper Craft Halloween Buildings

Ray Keim of Haunted Dimensions has some creepy facades you may enjoy making this fall.

There are two facades and my favorite one — the Skoolhouse.psychoscareapy

They are all fun to make and display on your buffet table for your Halloween Party.

These make great centerpieces and also look frightfully fun for a coffee table or entry table . . . even a bookcase. You’ll have the makings of a great Halloween Village with these.

You may also want to hang out at Haunted Dimensions for awhile and get some more great paper crafts printables you can make for your Halloween decor or for family and friends. A donation would be nice to help keep these great paper crafts free.

Ray Keim is a great artist and has a wonderful website of scary things you may enjoy.skoolhouse

I am quite fond of this SkoolHouse and have had it up since August for Back-to-School. I’ve also added some monsters from Ray O’Bannon’s RavensBlight toy shop . . . He has a few characters I thought would add to the feeling of going back to school.

It may be unfair to speak unfavorably about the lunchroom selection of food. I know when I went to school in the dark ages our school lunches weren’t too bad . . . not like Mom’s cooking, but I did like their Chili Beans on a cold rainy day . . . And back then those lunches were only 35¢ . . . unbelievable, huh?

micromonstersset2aThose were the days . . . and since then there have been movies about the cafeteria lady . . . and maybe the janitor, too . . .

All the scare the wits out of kids . . . or to make them wonder . . . is it possible? Did Harry move away . . . or did something . . . or someone get him? Then there was sweet Marsha . . . she wasn’t around one day after school . . . hummm, I don’t remember seeing her after lunch . . .  And, then there’s Bobby and Sam . . . Lisa and what was her name . . . ? Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

Which one of these culprits could have done the dirty deed? Now that pumpkinhead scarecrow has my vote, but the innkeeper with the bloody apron would make a wonderful cafeteria lady . . . and the mortician would be a great principal and the witches could be teachers . . . Now the pirates would be great yard supervisors . . . and having some monsters around would keep the kids in line . . . micromonsters1

Ray O’Bannon has another set of these monsters I should include . . .

Just remember the click the image and you’ll find the PDF to print out.

I don’t know about this second set . . . A mad scientist might work out . . . a vampire and a skeleton ghost may be interesting . . . or the bride and groom . . . They were high school sweethearts . . .

I just like giving you a selection . . . Ray Keim and Ray O’Bannon are the go-to people when it comes to wanting some haunted places . . . and Ray O’Bannon has his monsters and other toys you may find interesting.

Thanks for stopping by!


Are You Thinking Fall?

Why on earth would I be thinking of fall when it is August and HOT HOT HOT!

Yes, September is on the horizon.

It is so very comfortable in the house. Perfect for reading a good book with a friend.Donald-Daisy-Duck-Reading

It’s just when I go outside that I realize how hot it truly is. And it seems we’re quite a ways away from fall . . . but I love fall and it is always good to plan ahead.

Some areas have already started a new school year while others have a bit more summer vacation.

Whatever the season, it’s always good to appreciate what you have and doesn’t hurt to look ahead. I have enjoyed this summer. Even with the triple digit temperatures. Some crafters are still working on Christmas items, others have jumped into Halloween . . . and I’m caught a bit in between. I do want to look at nature and see what kind of cute boxes I can make to give to family and friends who stop by to visit.

I was looking at some fall clip art and got a little motivated to decorate some fry boxes. Then I realized that I like to make boxes that will be saved and cherished by others . . . Yes, I’m a dreamer.

TheKnollEntryColumnRay Keim of Haunted Dimensions has a PDF Entry Column box you can make and give to friends and family. I think this would be something they would hang on to . . . Why? Just look at the picture . . . does anything stand out?

Did you read the sign?

Everyone loves having a box that tells everyone to keep out.

Click the image and you’ll be taken to the PDF file. Make up quite a few of these. They are compliments of Ray Keim. He did add some moss to his finished column. You can do the same with some leaves or whatever else you think appropriate to add.

I think a few pumpkins would look nice on top or some miniature books, maybe a skeleton or a pirate’s hat . . . it may be nice to make several “tops” and decorate them for different seasons or holidays. Keeping, basically, with the seasonal weather. A bit of snow and snow flakes on top for winter, maybe some flowers for spring, some seashells for summer . . . or whatever strikes your fancy.

What I like about this box is that you can lift up the top, but no one will know the column is hollow, unless you make a half circle thump hole on the top or the side for easy opening of the “box lid” . . . I would not glue it down . . .

You can fill it with goodies . . . and the person you give this to may want to keep some goodies of their own inside or some treasure of their own. I think teens and the tweens in your household would love this Entry Column. It would look lovely on a desk or on a book shelf . . . even hidden away in a drawer . . . but I would like to display it throughout the year just for fun!



A Really Creepy House By Ray Keim

I’m sure you remember Ray Keim from Haunted Dimensions.

He’s a master artist and creates impressive paper craft 3-D buildings you can print out and assemble.Haddon

His newest one gives me chills just thinking about it. That’s why I’m telling you about it . . . or I’ll do a warning . . . Halloween . . . Mike Myers . . . The Halloween Movies . . . Murders . . . Well, Ray has a new model entitled Haddonfield 78 . . . That the house . . . his house . . .

It doesn’t look all that creepy . . . but the movies . . . those images . . . the story . . . yes, it is definitely the story . . .

Just click the image and you’ll be taken to the PDF on Ray’s Haunted Dimensions website. It would be nice of you to give a generous donation to him in appreciation of all the great paper craft printables he has created for our crafting pleasure. And to give us chills and that spooky feeling of being watched . . .

It would be a nice addition to your collection of Haunted Dimensions paper crafts. As for me, I’ll pass on this one . . . it really gives me an uncomfortable feeling.

I hope you enjoy this paper craft or others on Ray’s website. I really like Phantom Manor with the double staircase to the front porch. It is an attractive manor that will take quite some time to build . . . but it is definitely worth it. And with school starting back sooner than we may like, there’s The Skoolhouse along with lots of other places you may enjoy exploring.

Have fun!


The Skoolhouse — Free Ray Keim Paper Craft

With the onset of “Back to School” it seems fitting to present Ray Keim’s Haunted Dimensions Skoolhouseskool_01

I love these paper crafts! I’ve made several of them and created my own Haunted Display — Not just for Halloween, but all year round.

Just click the image and you’ll be taken to the PDF.

This old schoolhouse has seen better days . . . maybe it’s a good idea for it to look as though it’s falling down to keep children and adults away. Now, it seems this schoolhouse has a horrifying history . . . according to legend . . . children started disappearing . . . their remains have never been found, but it was believed that Jack the Janitor abducted the children and took them down to the basement which served as Jack’s “office” . . .

It’s these children that were murdered down in the school’s basement that are believed to haunt the old skoolhouse . . . but there are many legends . . . of many school houses throughout the United States and beyond.

I like this Skoolhouse, not because of the many legends, but because it is a place we’re all familiar with . . . school . . . and many don’t have fond memories of their school days . . . and many do . . . and many have mixed feelings . . . but all schools were a bit spooky after hours when it was empty . . . or we thought it was empty . . .

Enjoy your Skoolhouse . . . it will be a welcome addition to your haunted display this Halloween . . .

Ray Keim’s Colonial Theater Paper Craft

Ray Keim of Haunted Dimensions has a wonderful selection of quality paper crafts you can make for your personal Halloween display.BLOB-ColonialTheater

They take me awhile to put together, so I’m giving you plenty of time . . . you may want to make several of them. They are very well done and will be great to make and give to friends and family.

“The Blog” is a classic scifi movie made in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s set in The Colonial Theater — according to the movie, a meteorite hit the earth in 1958 and within this rock was an oozing mass that fed on the people who flocked to The Colonial for a Midnight Spook Show one hot summer evening lured by the Air Conditioning . . . back then houses didn’t have air conditioning, so this was a major attraction.

Have fun making The Colonial Theater and The Blob.
