Easy Treat Box and Halloween Card With Tutorial

Happy TuesDIE Cottage Cutz Friends!
Today I am sharing a super cute card and treat box set. fun and very easy card I created featuring dies that are part of the new Halloween Release.

Here's a look at my card and treat box. 

Here's a look at the card. It is a standard A4 Top Folding card. I started with a black cardstock base. I then adhered a purple mat and a yellow mat. I used the Spooky Kitties die to create the adorable kitties. The die includes the pumpkin, the bottle and the broom. I added a Web to the background. I mounted them onto a pierced circle and then mounted all of that onto a scalloped circle.

For the background I added a couple of cut webs for the top corners and then I added 

Here's a look at just the box. It was made to fit 5 little mini candy treats like the kind you get in the bulk bags. The little mini milky ways is what I used.

To create the box
For the base you start with 4.25 x 8.5
To create the box you need to score it along the 4.25 side at 1.25, 2, 3.25 and 4
for the 8.5 width you need to score it at .5 and 1.25 on each end.
Then you will need to cut it on both sides where I have the "X's" 

Here's a picture of what it looks like when you cut it on both ends.
Then you apply adhesive to the .25 piece and fold up to create the body of the box.

This is what it will look like when you have glued the two long ends together.
Then all you have to do is close the ends.

Here's a look at my black box and the mats. For the mats I just cut them an 1/8 of an inch smaller than the box sides. You will cut two at 1.125" x 5.825" and the other two are .625 x 5.825

Not pictured above is the little mat for the top of both flaps. You will need to cut two at 1.1/8 x 6.25
Of course the mats can be whatever size you like depending on how thick you want the borders to be.

Here's what the flaps on both ends will look like.

After I completed the body of the box, I used the cute Jack O Lantern Witch to create the cute little pumpkin lady. I added a little gathered tool to create a sort of tutu skirt for her. I then added some legs and decorated her. I mounted her onto a pierced circle mat cut from some cute yellow diagonal plaid patterned paper and then all of that onto a purple circle pierced mat and all of that onto another scalloped circle. I did this to kind of match the look of my card.

I then added the kitty, the tiny spider and web to the top. I added glitter and white gel pen lines to give it all a little extra decorative touch,

Here is one last look at both projects
