Little Halloween Box

Tomorrow is Halloween Ba Waaaahaaa haaaa. Did I scare you? Probably not. This can be a fun time of year and I always like to give my 5 grand nieces a little treat. I gave these boxes to them last Sunday. They loved them. I put 2 full size Reeses Peanut Butter cups and a sucker in each one and there was still a little room for more.
We made these in my technique class in September so we would have plenty of time to make a lot of these for Halloween. This is called a 2 4 6 8 box and is made with just a half sheet of card stock. I used black here appropriate for the holiday but you can use any color and decorate it to fit the season. This is a great project because you never have to look up the instructions for it, they are in the title.
  • Take the half sheet of card stock and Score on the long side at 2" then 4" then 6" and 8", hence the name. Then turn it and score one side at 2".
  • Then fold and crease all score lines.
  • Cut all score lines that measure 2" up to the 2" score line running on the long side.
  • Cut out the smallest section which measures 1/2" x 2".What is left forms a flap for adhesive. While it is flat decorate and stamp the front of the box.
  • Assemble the box with sticky strip or mono adhesive. Fold each bottom piece into the other and the box will form, run adhesive along the flap and adhere it to the rest of the box.
  • Then punch 1/8" holes in opposite sides of the box and bend and form your wire for the handle. Feed the wire through the holes and that's it.
