It's Looking Even More Like Halloween



Good morning , here is my  twinchie half way reminder post, it is Halloween over at the Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge blog so pop on over and take a look at the challenge and check out some of the fabulous entries.

Here are a few twinchies for Trick or Treat 











Here are a few more fun twinchies which were turned into gift tags.







My twinches were created with children in mind and I used some bought Halloween stickers to put on my twinchies bases. These were then made into tags to add to gift bags/boxes.





Here is short tutorial on how to make these bags which can be adapted for any occasion.




Take an A4 piece of card and score lines down the card at 21/2 inches, 51/2 inches, 8 inches and 11 inches

These are the box sides.











Turn card 90 degrees and score a line down at 21/2 inches, this will make the base of the box.




Cut up to the score line on the box base trimming the end fastening flap.





Here is a close up of the fastening flap, it is shortened for ease of sticking when putting the box together.





 If you want to stamp on your box, or stick coloured panels onto it now is the time to do so.

Fold the sides round tucking in the base flaps. stick the base flaps one on top of the other, taking car that one of the wider flaps is at the bottom of the box, then stick the small flap (inside or outside) down the length of the box.




The finished box, push in the sides at the top and pinch together, fasten in whatever manner you want, I punch holes at the top and attach ribbons and tags.









Hope you have fun making some boxes, they are fun for any occasion.  I will be making some for Christmas they are perfect for small presents and home made sweets and chocs.
