Oddball Batty Duo Halloween Gift Box | Stamping Bella

Hi all. I'm back with another Stamping Bella tutorial and today I'm sharing how I made this Halloween Tic Tac Gift Box featuring Oddball Batty Duo. I used an empty tic tac box for inside and filled it with Halloween candies but you could also use a box of green and orange tic tacs.

Tic Tac box
Black card
Halloween themed papers (used: Carta Bella, Hocus Pocus)
Scoring board and bone folder
Pennant die
Distress oxide ink - Carved Pumpkin
Ink blending tool 
Adhesive and foam tape/dots

How to:
Cut black card - 
(1x) 9.5" x 7" 
(1x) 2" x 3"

Cut designer paper - 
(2x) 2-1/4" x 3-1/8"
(2x) 1-3/4" x 3-1/8"
(2x) 2-1/4" x 1-3/4" 
(1x) 1-7/8" x 2-7/8" 

Score the 9.5" x 7" piece of card on the 9.5" side at 1", 2-7/8", 5-1/4" and 7-1/8" 

Turn 90 degrees and score at 1-7/8" from each end. 

Cut away the top and bottom panels of the 1" section. Cut down the top and bottom panels of the next section (1-7/8") to anything between 1/2" and 3/4". Cut all of the score lines from the top and bottom to the intersecting score line. 

Fold in the tabs of the other 1-7/8" sections, apply adhesive to both. 

Fold up the box and adhere the sides

Apply adhesive on the inside of the remaining 2-3/8"  sections, fold up and adhere to the sides. 

Taper in the edges of the 0.5/0.75" tabs. 

Adhere the paper pieces to the outside of the box. 

Stamp one of the bats from Oddball Batty Duo and colour using your preferred medium. 

Fussy cut around the outline. 

Adhere the small piece of black card and the paper layer together. 

Adhere to the front of the box. 

Adhere the bat to the box front using foam tape. Apply a dot of glue to the end of the cherry stalk and glue down. 

Stamp a Halloween sentiment onto white card, cut out using a pennant die. Before removing the die, ink with carved pumpkin distress oxide ink

Adhere to the top of the box. 

Fill the tic tac box with halloween candies and place inside the box. 

All stamps will be available from midnight tonight.
