Red Rubber Designs -Halloween Fun One-Sheet Boxes

Here are some ideas for fall.  These are treat boxes called One Sheet Box made by scoring an 8.5x11 cardstock.  (Tutorial for the box is at the bottom of this post).  I added some stamped images from Red Rubber Designs Trick or Treat and Halloween Fun.  All the images are colored with Copic markers. The background cardstock is Amelia patterned cardstock by RRD.

The first treat box is yellow cardstock. I used the cat image from Halloween Fun.  The saying is from Trick or Treat.  Added embellishments are a Spiral Clip, an office clamp, and ribbon.

Here's another image from Halloween Fun.  I colored some white brads with Copic markers to get the desired color.  It also has an office clamp for the closure and a ribbon.  The saying is from Trick or Treat.

The last treat box is made with green cardstock and also has Amelia patterned cardstock.  I distressed the edges of the cardstock and also the white cardstock on which the image is stamped.  I added some Pointed Turn Mounts which I colored with Copic markers to match the box.  the closure is a green Spiral Clip tied with a ribbon.

Would you like to know how I made these little boxes.  Here is a quick tutorial to show you how to fold an 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock into a box.

1.  Place cardstock on scoring board (Scor-Pal, Martha Stewart, etc), aligned vertically to the left side of the board.  Score at 2 1/2 and 6 inches.

2.  Turn cardstock horizontally on the board and score at 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches.

Using the ruler on the long side of the board, make a light pencil mark 2 inches from the corner.  Repeat on all corners. 

Fold the score marks to the inside.  Line up the first score intersection with a line on the scoring board.   I used the 5 inch line.  Unfold the cardstock.  Make sure you keep the score intersection on the 5" groove and line up your 2" mark on the same groove.  Score from the intersection to your mark to create a diagonal score.  Repeat on all four sides. 

Fold all score lines and your box will look like the above.

Fold it together and clip it, and there you have a treat box ready to decorate.  Be sure to unfold it to do any stamping or to add embellishments.
