Halloween Box with Rosette

Hi Everyone!  I made this Halloween box with rosette for the design team call over at My Creative Time with Emma.  Emma has the absolute BEST stamps and dies and it would be such an HONOR to be apart of her design team.  I am super excited how my box turned out.  Click here if you missed my tutorial on how to make these rosettes using Martha Stewart border punches.  For this rosette, I cut my strip at 1 1/2 x 12 and I only used 1 strip to make this rosette.   I found this box template HERE.   This box is FABULOUS!!!!  It is made using a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock.  Make a few score marks and snip a few corners.  That is it!
 I added some white gel pen dots to the spiders legs and bent them so it would give him some dimension.  I also used black/white twine at the bottom.  I was going to add a small bow, but it looked like it was too much so I decided not to put it on.
I punched 2 holes with my crop-a-dile and used 3 pieces of twine to tie the flaps together.  My advice is to punch the holes BEFORE you assemble the box.  And if you plan to stamp on the flaps, stamp your sentiment BEFORE you assemble the box.  Of course, I did it after I assembled it and it was a little difficult.

I just love this box.  I plan to make some for my child's teacher and put candy inside.  Please check back as I plan to make lots of these boxes for Christmas gifts.
