Haunted House Treat Box - Tutorial
Helloooooooo!!!!! I've been working with this for a month now (on and off) and it's finally here. I had so many proto-types on this project and came out with the easiest possible way to build a Haunted House treat. Ok, Ok... here's the tutorial just for you :) I will only provide the structure of the box and leave you with your creative imagination to decorate them :)
First you will need the following supplies:
- Basic Black
- Basic Gray
- BigShot Fancy Favor Box Die #115965
- Texture Impression Folder - Square Lattice #119976
- Scallop Trim Border #118402
- Cut 2 pcs - 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" Basic Black CS
- Cut 2 pcs - 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" Basic Gray CS then score @ 3/4"
- Cut 2 pcs - 1-1/2" x 2" Basic Gray then score @ 1/2"
STEP 1: CUTTING and EMBOSSING
Die cut a Fancy Favor Box. I use an 8-1/2" x 11" and cut the CS length wise first at 5-1/2" so it would fit the Big Shot. TIP: Position your CS at the side of the box where there is no flap then make sure you have a small flap at the bottom to seal your box.
Cut the 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece at a slant. Position one tip to the -3/4" and the other tip at 0" (cutting edge). Then emboss your pieces with the Square Lattice Folder.
STEP 2: PUNCH
Take your 2 pcs of 1-1/2" x 3/1-2" Basic Gray CS, Punch with Scallop Trim Border then score at 3/4". Do the same with your 2 pcs of 1-1/2" x 2" but score these at 1/2".
STEP 3: ADHERING
Adhere the 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" on the bottom of the roof as illustrated
Then, cut off the small piece that shows at the edge of the roof.
Adhere the 1-1/2" x 2" (scored at 1/2") on top of the roof as illustrated.
Now you are ready to glue your roof onto your box! Apply Crystal Effects glue (it holds the strongest) so you may fill your boxes with goodies!
BOO!!! You have your Haunted House Treat Box
You may also decorate them with your favorite Halloween Owl!!!! HAVE FUN IN YOUR HALLOWEEN WORKSHOP!!!! I hope you have much fun as I did making them :)
