Halloween Envelope Punch Board Treat Bag with Tutorial!

Good morning, its Friday, Friday, Friday!  Yesterday I sharing my Halloween card created using the Bootiful Occasions stamp set.  Today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, I am sharing this cute little candy box I made using the envelope punch board and some simple scoring.

I love being able to create my own little candy treat holders.  I love even better when I can use tools that I already own to make it easier.  That's where the handy dandy envelope punch board comes in hand.  With some simple score lines to get the box, I added a couple quick punches with the board to make it easier to close up.  Plus its just cute and who doesn't love ca-ute!!  The tag is created using the new note tag punch, freaky friends stamp set and a couple cute banners, then tied on using the new tangerine tango two tone rope twine.

Even though this is a small treat holder, don't under  estimate how much candy you can fit inside.  This little treat bag is perfect for simple teacher favors, to give to your child's school friends or co-works.  Whats even better, is that it doesn't take much paper and its a great way to use up that DSP stash.  YES, we know you have one!!!
Would you like to create your own now?  Follow these simple instructions and get started.
Above supplies you will need. Use choice of cardstock or DSP and cut to 8-1/2" x 5"

Score one the long side at 1/2", 2", 4-1/2", 6"

score on the short size at 1"

cut the tabs along the bottom up to the 1" score line and remove the smallest tab on the right.  these tabs folded up create the bottom of the box.

fold the 1/2" tab over and line up at the 1" line using the envelope board and then punch.

fold the paper on the next score line and once again line up with the 1" line and punch. 

you will fold on each line and punch until your paper looks like the above picture.

I would suggest using either redline or fast fuse adhesive to hold your box together depending on what kind of candy or item you would like to place inside.  place adhesive along the 1/2" tab as shown.

flip cardstock over and place another piece of adhesive along the third tab to close the box bottom together once folded in.

once you have folded up box this is what you end up with.  If you wish to stamp on the box, I would do so before closing it up.
