Fall Is In The Air - Candy Tube Box

Today our high was only in the low 60's which meant my hubby found a bit of wood to make the first fire in our fireplace.  I felt the urge to bake a batch of cookies.  So, our home smells pretty much like fall tonight.  It was cool enough yesterday to prompt me to create this little Halloween favor. 


I really love the candy tubes and making a cute little box to hold them was really fun. 

Box Instructions:

Cut cardstock to 4 1/2" x 11".  Score lengthwise 1 1/2" in from each side.
Score crosswise at:  1/2", 2", 4", 5 1/2", 7 1/2"

Cut on the scored lines as shown below (I cut exactly on the scored line and then tapered the flaps that fold so they lay nicer).  Punch a 1 1/4" circle for the tube as shown.

I stamped and cut the orange cardstock and attached to the box prior to folding. The stamps I used were:  A86 Spider; A79 Trick or Treat; E121 Dot Circle

The pumpkin face was made using a Tim Holtz Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die "Mini Paper Rosettes". I used the large one (the die cuts two sizes at once).  The pumpkin face was freehanded out of black cardstock.  The pumpkin was attached to the box after it was folded and glued.

Happy Stamping!
