Tutorial for Halloween Boxes from Candy Wrapper Die

Here they are, all four of my Halloween characters that I made from the Candy Wrapper Die (120890). I used the pumpkin as an example for the tutorial, but the box is made the same for all of them. The boxes are just dressed up differently. O.k., enough talk, I know you are all wanting to know how these cute little boxes are made:

Run 2 pieces 6“x6“of Pumpkin Pie (orange) card stock through Big Shot with Candy Wrapper die. Fold all score lines.
Cut off a quarter section of the box on the side that does NOT have the glue flap.
Put glue on flaps and glue two pieces together tucking flaps under. Make sure flaps are glued to the inside and are invisible on the outside of the box.

Cut each section at score lines through the diamond until you reach the horizontal score line.
For the bottom fold all opposite sides towards the middle and adhere.
At the top feed ribbon through diamond shaped holes and close with a knot.

Punch leaf from Luckey Limeade (green) card stock and adhere to pumpkin.
Run Chocolate Chip (brown) card stock through crimper, roll into a stem and stick through the hole in the middle.

Punch flower with 5-Petal Flower punch and snip off 2 petals for eyes. Adhere to pumpkin. Punch partial 1 ¾” scalloped circle, reinsert card stock into punch and punch again. Trim edges for mouth, adhere to pumpkin.
