These treat boxes are made for Scor-Pal October Challenge: “Sweet Treats”. I am so honored to be their guest designer for this month.

As you can download from the Scor-Pal website, tutorial for the blue box can be downloaded here!

In case you are new to paper folding – With the patterned side facing you, “Mountain” and “Valley” folds are as shown:

These boxes are easy to make: very little cutting/taping involved. They are so cute that just simply folded with patterned paper and tied with some ribbon will do the job. I can see the happy faces when I hand them out on Halloween. Sweet Treats!

Even Bigger Version:  2” x 2” x 5” for the body! Just think of the stuff you can put in them!

The scoring and folding are the same as in the tutorial linked above except in Step 2:

Long Side at Top: Score at 1-1/4”, 2”, 2-1/4” and 3”; Turn the paper around and score the other end at the same marks.

Body cover piece: 5” x 8”  and score at 2”, 4”, 6”.

I  then cut and punched eight 2” x 2” squares (4 for each end) to extend the ends. In my opinion, the box would be more balanced this way. Since most edge punches have a pattern of close to 2”, it is very easy to decorate the boxes.

Adding a window: Using Scotch tape to attach a piece of acetate to the inside.

Normal Shape punches can only reach this section and a little edge/tape will show in the finished box. I used an 1-3/4” punch here.

An Anywhere Punch would be wonderful to add a perfect window. Punch either one of the two middle sections. This punch I am using is a little small to my liking.

Baby Candy: Patterned paper size: 4-1/2” x 6” (Stampers, think of all the 6” x 6” pads you have! lol)

Step 1: Short side at top. Score at 1”, 2”, 3” and 4”.

Step 2: Long side at top. Score at 3/4”, 1-1/4”, 1-1/2”, 2”, 4”, 4-1/2”, 4-3/4” and 5-1/4”.

Step 3: Stamp (Optional)

Step 4: Short side at top, 1/2” section on the right. Put each 1” section between 7” and 8” line on Scor-Pal, put ruler against 7-3/8”, mark between the two closer horizontal scored lines on both ends.

Still short side at top, 1/2” section on the right. Put the paper against Left corner, put ruler against 3-5/8”, mark between the two closer horizontal scored lines on both ends.
