Halloween Treat Boxes to Give

These treat boxes are VERY simple to make with the Big Shot #2 Box die. The die cuts and scores everything and with only a small strip of adhesive for the cover, you are done!!!! The box itself doesn't is really sturdy, too. Ya gotta makes these! Only a small piece of sticky strip and he box is put together within 30 seconds!!!!! Cool, eh? Then use a strip of the Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper to decorate and it really is a snap to making this project look very cool! Wrap a co-ordinating grosgrain ribbon provides the finishing touch.

The Fan Folded Flower is made by scoring every 1/2" strip of DS - these flowers are 1" wide so the flower itself finishes 2" in diameter. See the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers for the Fan Folded Flower (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/fanfoldflower/)
