Trendy Tuesdays - Frankie Box (Halloween inspired treat box)

Frankie Box

DESIGNER: Jodie Baune

A quick and fun little goodie box for your friends, teachers and neighbors!

I wish I could claim this idea but I found it at Rose’s World. It is so darn adorable that I just had to give it a try! The green from the Savvy Davvy line paired with the black/rose paper from the Cherry Truffle line makes the perfect Frankie!

Box Directions:

1. Cut a 4 ¼” x 10 ½” piece of cardstock.

2. Score the long side at 2 ½ “, 5”, 7 ½ “, and 10”

3.Score the short side at 1 ½”

4. Fold along the score lines

5. Cut at the 2 ½”, 5”, 7 ½”, and 10” score lines up to the 2 ½” score line.

6. At the 10” score line, cut out the ½” remaining tab.

7. Apply adhesive along the ½” tab and assemble side

8. Assemble the bottom of the box

9. For the eyes, punch out two ¾” white circles, one ¾” circle in green, two ½” circles in black

10. Draw in the mouth with black marker

Lid Directions:

1. Cut a 4 ½” square

2. Punch around the edges to create “hair”

3. Score at 7/8” all the way around.

4. On two opposite ends, slit the score line up to the 7/8” line to create tabs

5. Assemble the lid
