Frankie Treat Box

Today I'll be teaching you on how to make a Frankie Treat Box!

1. Cut your green sheet of cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".

2. Insert scoring blade on paper cutter or use your Close To My Heart bone folder to score at 2", 4", 6" and 8" along the 8 1/2" length side of cardstock piece. You will have a 1/2" section left over.

3. Turn cardstock piece 90 degrees, and score entire length of cardstock at the 2" mark. (Your scoring blade will travel 8-1/2" down. The 5 1/2" side of cardstock piece will be against the bottom lip of your paper cutter).

4. Look at your scored cardstock piece. Take scissors and trim off the 2" x 1/2" section (not the 3 1/2" x 1/2" section). *Note: The 3 1/2" x 2" sections are the box top and the 2" x 2" sections are the box bottom.

5. Cut each 2" score mark along the 8 1/2" side. (You will be making three straight cuts, each along the 2" score marks). Do not cut beyond the long score mark running the length of the 8 1/2" side.

6. Fold along all score marks.

7. Cut out two 1” circles out of Close To My Heart White Daisy Cardstock, two ¾” circles out of Close To My Heart Black Cardstock, & one 1” circle (cut in half making 2) out of green cardstock (shown here) or Close To My Heart Clover Meadow Cardstock.

8. Put together the eyes by placing one ¾” black circle on top of the 1” white daisy circle & then put the ½ of circle of green on top of the white daisy & black circle making the eyelid. By making the hair cut a purple cardstock to 1” x 2” & then cut out little triangles. Decorate face as desire. Then past on the box as shown here. Place a section of sticky strip tape along the 3 1/2" x 1/2" flap on the decorated/stamped side. Seal the top part of the box closed.

9. Fold up the four 2" x 2" pieces; this is the bottom of your box. Use a sticky strip on the last 2" x 2" piece to seal the bottom of the box.

10. Your Frankie box is complete! This is GREAT for Halloween party favors, for your children’s friends or really anybody!
