A Spooky Treat Box! by Jamie Cripps

Good Morning!  Jamie back with you today!  Halloween is one of our favorite Holidays in our house and I love making little surprises for the kids and this spooky little treat box is perfect for holding so many!  

Here are the Samantha Walker products I am using today:

Here is a quick tutorial for recreating my project:
2.  Remove the cut from the mat and remove any pieces from the web that should be removed.
3.  Fold the box on all the score marks.
4.  (Optional) Use an ink on the top of the web pieces.
5.  I used a distress ink and placed the ink on my mat then used a foam applicator to cover the web areas.
6.  Using the Samantha Walker Harvest Moon Halloween Stickers Digital Kit, print out the Happy Halloween sticker at the size you want.
7.  Fussy cut the image and place foam adhesive on the backside.
8.  Using the Spider and Web Silhouette Cut, size the spider to fit within the box then cut him on black cardstock.
9.  With a white gel pen, place dashes around the edges of the spider cut.
10.  Gather the Fancy Lattice Spellbinders and a purple colored cardstock.
11.  Create a sandwich for the Grand Calibur.
12.  Run the sandwich through the machine.
13.  Your cut should look like this.  Trim edges and remove pieces as necessary.
14.  With a fine black pen, place dashes around the inside border of the box.
15.  Place adhesive on the four tabs of the box then place the Happy Halloween cut in the bottom right corner.
16.  Fold the box up and adhere on side as shown.
17.  Repeat for the opposite side.
18.  Use white cardstock to wrap the gum pack.
19.  Then wrap the purple decorative cut around the white cardstock and adhere the spider on top with foam adhesive.
20.  Use a piece of roll clear tape to adhere the spider surprise to the box as shown.
21.  Fold the two solid circle shapes down then fold in the two web circle shapes and tuck the tab into the coordinating slot.
22.  Add a small metal rim tag with twine or decorate as desired!

Isn't this box so much fun!?  
Just think of all the things you could enclose inside!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
