I saw this Halloween treat box by Sharon Johnson on her blog, No Time to Stamp?, and knew I had to try one! It was fast and I think very cute! Here's what you need to make it:

Papers: Apple Cider Designer Paper (from the Holiday Mini-Catalog)
Inks: Basic Black
Stamps: Bitty Boos (retired)
Accessories: Triangle Eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, 1/16" punch, Round Tab punch, Black Gingham Ribbon

Here's how to make it:

Cut 2 pieces of double sided paper, each 10.5" x 4.5". Score each piece at 3" and 7.5". Score each piece .75″ from the end, all 4 ends (this gives you the flap that is folded over). Stamp whatever images you want to use - but make sure the images aren't covered when you fold the flaps over. Fold the flaps down and use the Crop-A-Dile, to punch holes on each side of each end, approximately 1/2" in from the end, and centered on the fold over flap. Insert eyelets into those holes. Lay your two pieces down, one on top of the other, in a + shape, and mount the two bottoms together. Fold the sides up and thread the ribbon through the eyelets, and tie to keep the box in shape.
