Hi stampers! It’s getting closer to that fun time of year, when all the little ghoulies & goblins come out looking for treats! I really LOVE Halloween, even more so now that I have a little to enjoy it with me 🙂 This box was an idea that I came up with , after thinking back on my grade school years in Catholic school. We had these boxes called Christmas Kits, maybe some of you had them too, with some really crazy and goofy stuff in them. The idea was you lugged this kit around, were able to show people samples of what was inside and then they placed and order, that you then had to deliver back to them. Honestly, it was a zany thing to do, since these things were H U G E, and being that we had more than one kid in school at a time, kind of unfair, since I am most sure we had to bring home two. I can imagine now as a parent how much of a thrill ( insert sarcasm here) it was to pull up to get your kid(s) and see these giant boxes of nonsense sitting on the curb with them. I am sure my mom was thrilled, but she never let on how much of a P I A they were 😉
So if you want to create this simple box, it’s best followed in the video below, but I will list the measurements as promised.
You’ll need a piece of 12 x 12 card stock, color of your choice.
I used Elegant Eggplant.
Trim the card stock down to about 6 1/2″.
Score along the landscape side at 1 1/2″, 5 3/4″, 7 1/4″ & 11 1/2″, turn to the portrait position, and score at 1 1/2″ & 5″. I ended up not liking the last score, so I cut it off, also you may notice I changed the last landscape score, since it was slightly off, and made my box a little off as will. I went back and fixed it. ALSO, I liked it so much, I made a Tangerine Tango version too. Pics are all below. It was really super fun to make and even more fun to decorate! You could also make this into ANY HOLIDAY you would like as well. I am definitely going to do a Christmas and maybe even Thanksgiving version.
Thanks for coming with me on this stroll down memory lane;)
Until next time…… Stay Crafty!!
