Boo Box directions

Since the Boo boxes were so cute the other day, I thought I would make some with different colors.  If I get enough of these made this weekend, I am bringing in a little treat for everyone at work on Monday.  
The idea came from Brenda Quintana.  She won an art contest with these fun boxes, and was featured in the Stampin' Success Magazine that Stampin'Up! Demonstrators get every month. I realized when I was writing these up tonight that I followed her directions to a point, but didn't add a bunch of the extra things she did.  But that's okay, I like my boxes.  Hope you enjoy!
The orange and black box was made with Peach Parfait DSP and Pumpkin Pie ink.  The other boxes were made with: Basic Black and Old Olive card stock, Frightful Sight DSP, Spooky Bingo Bits stamps, Basic Black, Basic Gray and Old Olive classic inks, Punches:  Petal Card Double, 1" Circle, 1" Square and Postage Stamp, Simply Score tool, Sticky Strip and Snail.
The Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set has so many great images in it.
Box directions:  
1. Cut a strip of black card stock 4-3/4" x 1-1/8", then score at 1-1/8", 2-1/4", 3-3/8" and 4-1/2".
2. Fold along score lines and use a piece of sticky strip on the end tab.  
3. Adhere 1" squares of Designer Series Paper to each square on the strip of black card stock.
4. Punch out one Petal Card piece from the Petal Card Double Punch in black and one in another color.  
Note:  This punch can be a little tricky to use, until you get used to it.  Make sure to put pressure on the bottom and then top of the punch to get a perfectly punched and scored piece.
5. Put sticky strip on all of the semi circle flaps of the black punched piece, remove the red liner and adhere the flaps to the scored strip of black card stock to form an open-ended box.
6.Put sticky strip on one of the semi circle flaps of the Old Olive punched shape, then stick it inside to make the lid of the box.  (this box is sitting on it's side to show where I put the top into the box) 
7. Use the Postage Stamp Punch for a black piece.  I stamped an image from the Spooky Bingo Bits and punched it out using the 1" Square Punch.
8. Use the 1" Circle Punch to punch out BOO! and adhere with snail to the front semi circle flap of the top.  Then adhere the Postage Stamp shape to the top of the box.  
Now you can make your own boxes!  I can't wait to make some Christmas boxes next.
