Spooky Night Halloween Treat Box

  • Halloween Treat Box
  • August 27 Card Class open for registration

Spooky Night Box made with Gift Bag Punch 

Today I created a couple of treat boxes for Halloween using the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and Basic Black cardstock.  These cute boxes are actually rather large and all one piece.  They hold a couple of the new treat tubes, or a small package of sweets and are perfect for the visiting trick or treaters.  I love that these are a single piece of cardstock, including the lid.  The lid simply flips up.     

The Cat punch from Stampin' Up! was used to create the cat silouette

The base box is Basic Black and covered with Spooky Night Designer Series Paper which becomes available in the Holiday catalog on September 1.  The striped banner paper is another pattern from Spooky Nights.  

I began with an 11-3/8" X 6-3/8" piece of Basic Black card stock.  Using the Simply Scored Scoring tool, score along the long side at 1-3/8, 3-3/8, 6-3/8 and 8-3/8.  Turn the Basic Black card stock and score on the short side at 1-3/8" and 5"

Switching to the Gift Bag Punch Board, along the long edge, line up the 1-3/8" score line with the score guide on the punch and punch. Move to the next score line (3-3/8") and align with the score guide and punch.  Move to the third score line (6-3/8) and punch.  Line up the longest edge with the punch guide and punch again, giving all edges rounded corners.

Now, flip the Basic Black piece over and beginning again with the 1-3/8" edge, align with the punch guide with the score line and punch on the four score lines again -- 1/3/8", 3-3/8", 6-3/8" and 8-3/8".  Line up the outer edge as well, and punch causing rounded corners on all edges.

The dimensions for the designer series pieces:
  3-1/4" x 2-3/4" - for front of box
  3-1/4" X 1-3/4" - for top of box
Watch the direction of your prints or stripes
Use Fast Fuse to hold your box together.

The banner-tag:
  Very Vanilla - 2 X 5".  
  Stripe from Spooky Night - 1-3/4" X 4-7/8"

Use Fast Fuse to adhere the banner - tag.  Only glue it to the box cover so it flips up when the box cover flips up.  I tied a double bow with the Shimmer Ribbon in 3/8" Basic Black and then glued the ends of the ribbon under the lid.

3/8" Black Shimmer RIbbon Bow added to top of box

Add a Basic Black cat punched with the Cat Punch.  Add the cat with two dimensionals attached to the tag -- not the base of the box -- so the cat also flips up when the cover is removed.   The box is fairly busy so I didn't add a sentiment, but you could easily add the Treat or Treat sentiment from he Spooky Night stamp set. 

Be sure to add the Cat Punch to your first order from the Holiday catalog, as its sure to be very popular.  The cat punch and the coordinating Spooky Cat stamp set will be available as a bundle saving you 10% when purchased together. Add a package of the Spooky Night Designer Series papers so you'll be set for Halloween projects.
