How to make a Trick or Treat hinged double box with Celebrate Everything DSP


Today I want to share a fun Halloween gift box idea with you…

I had the idea to make 2 boxes, hinge them together and decorate them with this fun paper from the Celebrate Everything Host paper pack. I worked out my measurements and that was about as far as I got before deciding to make a video. Let’s just say that the decoration didn’t go exactly to plan so if I were to give you any advice on this project it would be…

Wait until you’ve assembled the boxes before you add your patterned paper so you avoid the confusion and waste I experienced!!

You can watch my Halloween nightmare by clicking on the image below… I get there in the end! LOL

To make this you’ll need the following:

  • Basic Black card measuring 8-1/4 x 11″ (or 8-1/2″ x 11″ if using US letter sized card)
    • cut in half to measure 8-1/4 x 5-1/2″ (or 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ if using US letter sized card)
    • score each one on the long side at 3″, 4″, 7″ & 8″
    • score each one on the short side at 1″, 4″ & 5″
  • Celebrate Everything designer series paper measuring
    • 2 pieces measuring 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
    • 2 pieces measuring 3/4″ x 2-3/4″ with pattern running vertically
    • 2 pieces measuring 3/4″ x 2-3/4″ with pattern running horizontally
  • White card for stamping and cutting with the Alphabest bundle & Cottage Wreaths stamp
  • Metallic Mesh ribbon

The finished boxes each measure 3″ x 3″ x 1″ so are great for all sorts of Trick or Treat gifts!

Despite my decorating disasters in the video I really enjoyed making this and love the end result! I hope you’ll give this project as try too.
