Creepy Treats Boxes

Whoo Hoo! My Creepy Treats Boxes can be found on page 38 of Paper Crafts Magazine (September/October)! To celebrate, I thought that I would share some detailed instructions on making these boxes.


1. Cut 2 strips of black cardstock each 1 inch wide; make one strip 9 inches long and the other 9.5 inches long.
2. Cut 2 scallop circles in black cardstock, with Spellbinder scallop circle d ies (approximately 2.75 inches in diameter).

3. Adhere ends of strips of paper together to form a ring (overlapping by 1/2 inch). These 2
rings will form the sides of the box. One ring will be smaller than the other and they fit inside each other.

4. Adhere one ring on each scallop circle. You will want to use a 'clear and fast drying glue' - I have used Diamond Glaze or Beacon's 3-in-1. I recommend placing the bead of glue on the inside of the rings to hide any drips! Repeat this step with the other ring and scalloped circle and Taa-Daa you now have a box!

5. Cut circle of Green cardstock with the coordinating Spellbinder's circle.

6. Stamp polka dots with Papertreyink 'Polka Dot Basics.' I used white acrylic paint.

7. Stamp Papertreyink 'Spooky Sweets II' circle and 'Creepy Treats' sentiments on green circle.

8. Adhere the green circle to top of box.

EDIT: The stamps (polka dot basics, spooky sweets II) used for this project, are both from
