CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Halloween Favor

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Halloween favors, and since my favorite candy is Reese's peanut butter cups/pumpkins/trees/eggs, I built the treat box that size. This is the larger individual size candy, not like the little ones in the bags, so I decided to make a matchbox for it! After taking some measurements and resisting the urge to gobble up the treat, this is what I came up with. (You can click the photos to enlarge them, if needed.)

If you cut a sheet of cardstock lengthwise at 5 inches, you will have the two sizes you need for the box bottom and sleeve. Cut the larger one down to 5" x 6-1/2". Score the long side at 3/4", 1-1/2", 5", and 5-3/4". Score the short side at 3/4", 1-1/2", 3-1/2", and 4-1/4". This will be the box bottom. Cut to the scorelines as shown, and trim off the excess. (It helps to cut a slight notch into the scorelines.)

Now cut the 3-1/2" x 11" down to 3-1/2" x 6-1/8" and score at 1-1/4", 2-1/16", 4-1/16", and 4-7/8". This is the sleeve.

Fold the flaps in on the box bottom and fasten with Tear & Tape, then fold the sides in and adhere with T&T.

Fold the sleeve around the box bottom and adhere the back edge with T&T. Decorate as desired! I used the striped DSP from Cute Halloween, cut 1-7/8" x 3-3/8" and adhered to the top, then Metallic Mesh Ribbon wrapped around and tied in a bow.

One of the Highland Heather scraps was used for the label (which was attached with mini dimensionals) and some Cute Stars Adhesive-backed Sequins completed the box.

That's my share for today. Click the Next button to jump over to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner has made!
