Frankenstein treat boxes
Today I attended Angie's Ustream at Chic n Scratch. She went through and showed us how to make these fun boxes.
Being the frugal person I am with card stock - I was able to make two using one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock (green) and 1/2 sheet of black for the cover/top.
Here is how I did it
Cut 8 1/2" x 11" in half so you have two 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 pieces
Score at 1" on the portrait sides of the piece
Turn and score at 3 1/2" on both ends
clip middles and glue to form a "bag/box
For the top/cover
I cut two piece of black at 3 1/2" x 5 1/5"
score all edges at 1"
Clip and form into a box cover.
Angie showed us how to make eyes:
Using a 3/4" circle punch - punch eye a set up eyes.
Using a 1/2" circle punch - punch a set of pupils (you can use your white pen to highlight the eye as well
For the eye lid - punch one 3/4" circle in green and cut in 1/2. ink and glue all in place.
For the mouth you can use a template as Angie did, but I just drew a "W"
These are going to my two nephews tomorrow, as my sister's family comes to our neighborhood each year as it is safer and you can hit 50+ houses - LOL.
For the bolts - I punch a couple large arrows, folded them at the tip to aid in gluing and drew on the threads.
I am entering in these "not so spooky" fun candy boxes in these challenges.
