Halloween Nerd?

Are you Nerdy?  Well this Halloween project is.  It's a Halloween treat box that holds not one, but two little boxes of nerds. Wouldn't these make the perfect treat for your child's halloween party?

I made these nerd boxes last Valentines and posted the instructions and they were so popular that I thought I should post them again:
  
Directions:
  • Cut card stock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". (You will be able to make 4 boxes from one 8.5 x 11" piece of card stock)
  • Score the long way 3/4" in on both sides then score the short way at 3/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/4" and 5".
  • Using the template for reference, cut in from the edge to the first score where indicated. Cut and remove the areas that are shaded in gray.
  • Cut and attach designer paper.
    • TOP: 1 5/8" x 2 5/8"
    • SIDES: (2) 5/8" x 1 5/8 and (2) 5/8" x 2 5/8"
  • Fold and glue decorated card stock to create box.
  • Fill with 2 boxes of Nerds and embellish as desired.
Materials:
  • Card Stock:  Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
  • Designer Paper:  Pumpkin Pie from the Brights Collection Paper Pack
  • Punch:  Bitty Bat
  • Stamp Set:  Grateful Greetings
  • Ink:  Basic Black Classic Ink Pad
