How to:

Trim Down Cardstock- Use the paper cutter to trim down your paper into squares. You can use any size you’d like, here’s what we used:

  • Pumpkin – 9”x9”
  • Frank – 12”x12”
  • Bat – 6.5”x6.5”

Make Your Boxes – Adjust the Gifting Board to the correct size of the sheets of paper. Place the the paper into the gifting board and punch and score as noted. The Gifting Board has all the easy to follow instructions right on the board.

It seems a little confusing at first, but it’s a very repetitive process. You’ll get the hang of it very quickly!

Create Embellishments

Pumpkin – Use the Handheld circle punch to create two sets of eyes. One white and one black. Off set them a bit to help make them pop! Cut out a classic jack-o-lantern smile and a triangle nose. Glue on your features to the front of the box. For the stem take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around a pencil to give it a curly look! Draw lines for the pumpkin ridges using a black marker.

Frank – Punch out two sets of eyes out of purple and white paper. Off set them a bit like the pumpkin. Punch out two smaller circles with the confetti punch. Glue them slightly above the center of each eye. Take your scissors and cut directly across the top to create a furrowed brow look. Cut out a mouth and a jagged pice of black paper for hair. Glue everything on the box and embellish with a drawn scar. For the bolts we added pipe cleaners to each side of the box. We found it best to use a push pin to poke the holes to help the pipe cleaners fit in easily.

Bat – Cut out two bat wings! If this seems difficult, trace a small glass on to a pieces of paper for a circle then cut the circle in half for your wings! Punch out two beady eyes and a cute little smile. Glue them on and use a white paint maker to add the teeth!

Fill the boxes with tricks and treats! And give them to someone you love! Happy Halloween!
