Halloween Self-Closing box

Hello, we are having temps in the high 80's again, suppose I shouldn't complain, because before you know it, we will be complaining about the cold and snow.  But, it would be nice to have some nice Fall days and be able to turn off the air conditioning.

I made these sweet Halloween treat boxes from a pattern and instructions I found HERE.

These are so cute.  I had issues with the bottom wanting to pop open, and
went back to see that someone had posted a suggestion that you start
with a piece of paper 8 1/2 x 61/4 which would make the bottom more stable 

Papers are American Crafts Halloween Stacks
Bat is a Memory Box die.
Sentiment is Hero Arts

There are a lot of examples of these on Pinterest.
They make nice shower favors, kids birthday treat boxes,
the ideas are endless.  Lots of you tube videos too.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a nice day.  Until later.
