Welcome to the Wicked Blog Hop hosted by The Angel Company

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
It is a special day as it marks the 1st Blog Hop hosted by TAC.

I decided to make a special project and share the entire instructions with you.


Wicked Treat Holder

For today's project I used the TAC stamp set called Trick or Treaters. This stamp set has been around for a couple of years and as most of my friends and blog followers know, it is my favorite Halloween set!!!

For this project, I also will use my new and favorite tool the Scor-Buddy and will color the image with copic markers.

To start find your favorite cardstock and cut a 12" x 12" into 6" x 6" squares (note: one sheet of cardstock will make 2 boxes).

Score the square at 1 1/2" and turn 90 degrees. Score again and turn. Score again and turn. Score again and turn.

Your piece will then look like this ....

Cut the bottom scores and the top scores to the middle square.


Fold the sides up and adhere.


This is what you will end up with and this is the bottom of your box.


Now take another one of your 6" x 6" squares ......


This time START the cardstock on the 1/8" mark (do not make flush with the left side or the scor-buddy)

Score again on the 1 1/2" mark all the way around and cut on the score lines and adhere together ... just as above ... although again always start on the 1/8" line with this 6" x 6" piece.

This is now the top of your box and since you started on the 1/8" line it makes the top wider than the bottom and thus fits over the bottom.

Now that you have your box parts made ... now it's time to make your band that goes around the box. Cut a 1" x 10" strip of a coordinating cardstock.

Score this band piece at 1 7/8", 3 1/2", 6 3/4", and 8 3/8". Wrap this around the box and adhere the ends together.

Next cut a piece of white cardstock 2" x 2 1/2". This is where you will stamp your imagCheck Spellinge and you will mat that on a piece of cardstock 2 1/4" x 2 3/4"" to match your band.

Adhere this panel to the band.

These are all of the final pieces of the project.

I hope you enjoyed this project. It is a great project for your Scor-buddy or Scor-pal!
You can modify this project for Christmas or birthdays or whatever special occasion you might have!
It's a great gift just by itself ... but of course you SHOULD put something in it!!!
