Halloween Treat Box

 Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

We have a brand new release just in time for all of those amazing Halloween cards everyone makes!! The collection has 22 fabulous dies that are going to make those scrapbook layouts and cards look SPOOKTACULAR!!!  The dies are currently on sale so make sure you get them while they last at this special introductory offer!!

Today, I am using the Witchy Ghost.  It sits perfectly on top of the tiny treat box.  I also used the Web and a spider from the Jack-O-Lanter Witch.  I think this cute little box will be perfect for a teacher's gift or some special Trick or Treaters!

Design Steps:

1.  Cut a piece of orange card stock 9 1/4 x 4 1/2 and then score

2.  Horizontal 5/8, 4 3/8,  5,  8 3/4
3.  Vertically 5/8, 3 3/8, 4
4.  Use a bone folder and burnish the score lines then open flat with the two score lines horizontally on the top of your work area
5.  Cut the tabs on the bottom of the orange card stock as shown above
6. Then flip the orange card stock so that the 2 horizontal score lines are now at the bottom of your work area as shown above  

7.  Cut the bottom of the orange card stock to match the picture above 
8. Flip the box over so the double scored longest flap is now at the top of the work space.  The longest flap is the part that will close the box so round those corners
9.  Glue two pieces of DP each measuring 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 to the box as shown above
10.  Cut a notch on the side that does not have the flap that closes the box.  I used the second to the smallest from the Circle dies.  As shown above
11.  On the opposite side of the notch cut you will cut the window of the candy box with the 3rd from the smallest Pierced Retangle dies.  As shown above
12.  Flip the orange piece over and tape the acetate to the back of the window
13.  Assemble the box using glue or a strong double sided tape making sure you do not glue the flap that opens and closes the box

14.  Place the candy in the box.  You can use any kind of candy you wish
15.  Use the Witchy Ghost die, the Web die and the Jack-O-Lantern Witch die (for the spider) to cut out the pieces in the following colors of card stock: white, yellow, orange, purple,  green, gray and black.  Assemble the pieces with a fine tip quick drying glue.  Glue the pieces to the front of the box as shown below then add the sentiment and your little treat box is finished
