I decided to step out side my normal card box and make a treat holder for you guys! But, then I could not help myself and made a card to go along with the treat box! For both projects, I used the Spooky Cat bundle and the Spooky Nights Designer Series Paper. I can’t begin to tell you how much I like the cat punch! It is probably my favorite punch in a very long time! I am just reaching for it all the time.
The Spooky Night Designer Series Paper coordinates with the punch. And is perfect for all your Halloween Crafting!
The pumpkins and hats are adorable and fussy cut super easy. The polka dots are just adorable. And the cats are just the right size to punch with the cat punch!!!
I surfed through some of my favorite blogs that make 3-D items a lot. And came across a box that was made from a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper over at Pootles. It is the perfect size for a “fun size” candy bar. Witch ment it was just right for a Halloween treat!
Each box was made with 12 x 22 Designer Series Paper. You get 4 boxes per sheet of Designer Series Paper. Then I used the Spooky Cat bundle to decorate the boxes.
Here’s the scoring and cutting info:
- the paper should be 6×6
- Score at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 inches
- On the other side score st 1 1/2 , 2 1/4, 3 3/4, and 4 1/2
- Burnish all score lines
- On the side with four score lines you will cut up to where it intersects with the other score line
- Then you will cut away a few sections. (See below)
Above is a picture of the template that I made. You will want to cut away the parts that I have scribbled on. Also, the Black lines are the score lines. So you can see you don’t cut away the entire flap So that you end up with something that looks like this.
The next step is to add glue to the sections that were left after cutting! I used the fast fuse for this. It is very rare that I reach for this over the multipurpose glue. In this case fast fuse was perfect!
I used a piece of leftover backing from the multipurpose adhesive sheet. The tape in fast fuse will not stick to the backing. So, it is perfect for when you want to run the tape from edge to edge of a piece of paper.
I added fast fuse to the orange sections that are folded over. All that is left is to put the box together. The bottom two orange sections glue to the long tab that is in between them. This makes the box. The top section with fast fuse adheres to the top tab. This makes the top. You want to repeat the process on both sides.
This is such a fun box with designer series paper. I love how when you open it the inside paper is just a pretty as the outside.
The hinged lid makes this box unique. Now, you can use a 1/2 inch circle punch to add a little notch to the bottom of the lid making it easy to open. I opted not to. Also, if you have any questions about making the box feel free to contact me via email. Pootles has a wonderful video on how to make this box.
Now, y’all know I couldn’t let the day go by without showing you the cat! Is he not adorable. Paper crafting could not get any easier. The fun scarf is the Vintage Crochet Trim. I love this trim! It tied just like a real scarf!! How cool is that!!!
- The cat’s ear peeking out is something I have been thinking about ever since I saw the hats. I used a exact-o knife to cut a slit for the ear to peep out
- The orange layer is embossed with the quilt top texture embossing folder. This folder is quickly becoming a favorite!
- The stitched layering dies make a plain square something special

My Tricked out tip for you today I learned from watching way too many you tube videos. The always fabulous Jennifer McGuire gave the adhesive sheet tip in a video I was watching! It really pays to be addicted to card videos. Anyway, try it out for yourself. It is really useful when lining envelopes. And for boxes like today!
Peace and happiness my friends-
