Countdown to Halloween Project #4...
Okay, okay... here is the Triangle box I thought (MHO, of course) was even cuter than the Candy Corn box causing it to get the boot from my Halloween Treats Stamp Camp.  It is based on a display at convention although I changed it up a little.  Rather than adhering the main stamped piece to the card, I have used the buckle as an easel.  That way I can easily switch it out as I have to confess I haven't completely made my mind up as to whether this was the images I wanted.  :)   If I had adhered it I would have done it higher and at an angle.  Enjoy!

  • Stamps:  Halloween Hoot, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
  • Paper:  Basic Black, Old Olive, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Brushed Silver
  • Ink:  Basic Black, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Bashful Blue, Silver Metallic
  • Accessories:  Silver Embossing Powder, Old Olive 5/8" Ribbon, Silver Elastic Cord, 
  • Punches: Small Tag, Large Tag, 3/4" Square, 1 1/4" Square 

  1. Cut your black cardstock to 5” x 11”. Stamp and emboss your cardstock as desired.
  2. Turn your cardstock over. On the back, mark the middle of both short sides of the cardstock with a pencil @ 2½”.
  3. Score your cardstock at 5½” on the long side.
  4. Line up the mark you made on one of the short sides with the middle of long side. Score to create a diagonal fold.
  5. Line up the mark with the other side of the middle fold and score. You will now have a triangle of scored lines.
  6. Repeat step four and five on the other half of the cardstock. Prefold all your score lines.
  7. Cut 7” x 1¾” from Basic Black cardstock. Then cut on an angle to match the hat (this is the brim of the hat). Affix to the underneath of the bottom of the Triangle Box with Sticky Strip.
  8. Adhere Old Olive to cover the bottom of the box and top of the brim. Fold ribbon around back of the front of the box (inside).
  9. Optional (I don't usually do this):  Add Sticky Strip to the edge of one of the long sides and assemble the box by bringing the two ends together and securing with the adhesive just applied.
  10. Use a Crop-a-Dile™ on the 3/16” side to punch through the taped sides. Bring both of the opposite sides together and punch a hole through them as well.
  11. Fill your box with treats.
  12. Thread your ribbon through the punched holes and tie. It will keep your box closed.
  13. Punch out buckle by punching ¾” Square from Brushed Silver. Use the 1¼” Square punch to center that punch within and punch again. Adhere to the ribbon with a mini glue dot on two sides. Decorate and/or embellish your box as desired.
