Here are 3 boxes made from various Hallowe’en themed DSP and card stock. I got the box directions from this post. The 2 boxes on the end measure 4″ x 5.25″ and the middle box measures 4″ x 4.25″ I created the middle box using Crumb Cake card stock and adding a piece of DSP to the front. All I did to get this shape was cut the card stock 1″ smaller in height and followed the rest of the directions. I had a lot of fun making these boxes, as I usually do! Some of the items used are retired.

Did you notice the potion jars on the middle box? I just cut those from the adorable Monster Bash DSP and glued them down! The whole sheet has a ton of the cutest, not-too-creepy things in jars – so fun! And I love the Ornate Frames Dies – they really add some interest to projects.

Do you like to make boxes or bags for small gifts? Here are the instructions for making these boxes:

Paper Gift Bag Instructions

Cut your patterned paper or card stock to 12″ x 7″ What you’ll want to be the top of the bag needs to be along the 12″ side.

Lay paper on your Simply Scored tool with the “top” on the right side, which makes the edge sitting at the 7″ mark.

Using the stylus which comes with the Simply Scored tool, score at 1 3/4″. This becomes the bottom of the bag.

Turn the paper with the side that will be the top along the top of your Simply Scored tool. Score at 1/2″, 2 1/4″, 6 1/4″, and 8″.

Using a bone folder, crease well all of the lines you scored.

Holding the paper so that you’re looking at what will be the front of the bag with the bottom of the bag at the bottom, cut each of the 3 score lines ONLY up until the horizontal score line you made first. Cut off completely the smaller, narrow section on the left.

Take that narrow section and cut both ends at a slight angle.

On the “right” side of the paper of this narrow section add the tear tape or glue and attach to the opposite side of the box. Also add tape or glue to what will be the bottom of the box and fold.

Slightly fold in the top quarter of the bag, but not all the way down, so you can fit more inside 😉

Decorate as desired!

Tip: If you don’t have a Simply Scored tool, you can use a ruler and a pencil to mark where your score lines should be, then score using a stylus against the ruler!
