Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has a safe one! DS#1 had a party at school yesterday and apparently ate too much chips & candy or something else must have upset his stomach. He is now lying down in my bed with what I think is a Stomach Virus. So no Trick or Treating for us tonight.
Look what showed up in my mailbox a few days go. Isn't that Mummy the cutest?! It was sent to me by Amanda Bodine, she used my Candy Apple Box .cut file. She did a great job! Just look at how much candy these little boxes can hold!
Please leave comment for Amanda letting her know what a great job she did.
Have YOU used my .cut files? Send me a picture of your project and I'll feature you on my blog!

When cutting out either of those two boxes or anything that is outside of the cutting area, simply change the mat size to 24x12. This makes the mat larger therefore, the design is no longer outside the area.
I made her to look girlie - at least I hope. Hair is from PPDU, but a bit longer than Frankie's. Eyelids are 1" circle cut in half and raised with pop-dots. Eyelashes and mouth are hand drawn. Tied a glimmer misted flower bow to her hair. And gave her rosey cheeks.
Use this as a paper placement guide. The "hair" on his tab is for Mr. Frankie and you get two cuts. Repeat cut if you need more.
Next, is Mrs. Frankie's Hair. In order to save paper, just use a piece of 4.5x3.25 paper. I have outlined the area where the paper should go.

I'm thinking about chaning the blog address for this blog. If I do, it will occur between the next few days. And since I'm relatively new at this blogging world, I'm not sure if those following my blog will be lost. Please add the new address to your Favorites, until everything is changed over. I hope to see you at the new Blog!
New Blog Address:
*Please note that you will get a "Blog Not Found" message until the actual crossover happens.

Start off gathering your supplies. I suggest using an adhesive runner or glue pen for the layers and some kind of double-sided tape for the tab.
Fold your scorelines
I inked my edges to give it more depth and I just like the look.
Align the white layer with the edge of the box.
Now place the orange layer.
Since I cut the triangle box in yellow, I don't need the yellow layer in the .cut file. Continue by re-folding the scorelines, so you score the layers.
Turn your box over and add your piece of acetate on the window.
Turn it around again and add the adhesive of your choice to the bottom left tab. I would have used Sticky Strip, but I was all out. Instead I just used my regular adhesive. It worked out nicely. Now fold the glued tab away from you and form a triangle.
Fill your box with Candy Corn or candy of your choice.
Close the lid by sliding the bottom tab into the slot and the top tab inside.
And Voila! your done!!
This was my first photo tutorial, so I hope I explained everything. If not, please ask any questions you might have.

Cricut Messageboard, I came along this treat box by MizEsther. Of course, it was made with a cart I don’t own, so I decided to recreate it with Plantin Schoolbook and its Best Friend, Doodlecharms. So without any further interruptions I give to you my version of the Candy Corn Treat Box.
