Halloween Treat Boxes

Personal_Blog_Statement_2

I love Halloween!  I wanted to share some quick and fun Halloween Treat Boxes I made using the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board and pattern papers from the Boo! collection by Pebbles.  These will be fun to give to my nieces and nephews for Halloween tomorrow.

I started by selecting the pattern papers and the String Tie Box design.  You can also make envelopes with liners, bows, boxes, file folder cards, and coin envelopes using the 1-2-3 Punch Board.

I chose to make a 4″ x 4″ x 4″ sized box and used a 12″ x 12″ sheet of pattern paper.  All I did was trim off the bottom strip of paper.

I lined up the edge of my paper with the XL Box Start Line.  I punched the paper then scored Box Score Lines A, B, and C.  I repeated that going around all four sides of the 12″ x 12″ sheet of pattern paper.

I flipped the paper and lined it up again with the XL Box Start Line.  I punched the paper then scored Box Score Lines A, B, and C again.

I rounded all 4 corners of the paper using the Corner Rounder at the top left of the Punch Board.

I cut opposite ends of the paper along the vertical score lines.

I folded all the lines on the paper.

I used my We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite Punch to punch holes in all 4 corners.

I added Sticky Thumb Double-Sided Tape to all 4 tabbed sections

All done!  So easy!  Love it!

Finally, I added ribbon through the holes in this pattern to make sure the box closes correctly.
