It’s time for Kraftin’ Kimmie’s AUGUST 2013 RELEASE!!!!! We’ve been dying to share this month’s new STAMPS with you!! We’ve got SO many exciting things going on….so let’s get to it!

We are kicking off the *New* AUGUST Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and we’re SO excited to share these new stamps with you from artist, Nicole Aspinall!!! Today we’d like to introduce you to these spooooooky new sets ….FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE! and TIME FOR A COFFIN BREAK!

Today, I used “From Beyond the Grave” to create some fun treat containers!  I thought I would put a little tutorial together for you as well so you can fold up a set of your own treat containers!  Here’s how:

Step 1Step-1Cut a piece of cardstock to 5″ x 9″.  Place the 5″ edge across the top of your scoring board and score are the 1″ and 4″ marks.

Step 2
Step-2

Rotate your cardstock so the 9″ edge is across the top of your scoring board.  Score at the 1″, 4″, 5″ and 8″ marks.

Step 3

Step-3

Fold along all scoring marks

Step 4Step-4
Moving along the 9″ edges of your cardstock, cut up at the 1″, 4″, 5″ and 8″ score marks to the 1″ score mark that runs across the paper.  Essentially, you are making a one inch cut up at each of these score marks.  Remember to rotate your paper and do the same on the the other 9″ edge.

Step 5

Step-5

Tuck in the 6 – 1″ square tabs you have created and run adhesive across each.

Step 6

 Step-6

Starting at one of the 5″ edges of your cardstock, fold the edge up at the score line and tuck in the 2 1″ square tabs.  Press them firmly in place the adhere and to start the bottom of the box.  Repeat with the next pair of tabs, gluing them to the back side of the bottom of your box.  Repeat with the final set of tabs, this time creating the lid of your box.

Step 7
Step-7

Close the box up, making sure that the side pieces of the top of the box are on the outside of the bottom part of the box (this of this as a strangely shaped mini pizza box). Embellish away!Treat-containers-angled
