Here's the final product... Sorry, I don't know how to upload candy corn so you'll have to source that elsewhere.
Ok... cut all the pieces out. I recommend using 110# cardstock or at least really sturdy paper. The decorative paper used on the side of the lid is from DCWV and it's still a little bit floppy. Sturdy but the box is still squishy when empty.
First things first.... The top and the bottom are put together the same way and have very similar pieces. Don't mix them up or your box won't turn out. For the top and the bottom of your box you will have a strip with a zigzag edge and two circles (one smaller than the other).
Make sure you score along the edge of the two side pieces where the triangles begin. They will make folding the points down very easy. Prefold these points as it will make putting it on the circle easier.
To make the top: I put a dot of glue on the back side of the first half of the points then one by one using the smaller of the top circle pieces I pressed the triangle tab onto the circle holding it in place for a moment until it was secure.
Then, once I had glued those tabs down, I added glue to the remainder of the triangle tabs and continued gluing the side of the box to the circle.
Then, you can use either 1/8" super sticky (redliner) double stick tape or a bit of glue up the edge where the side overlaps to secure the side in place.
Then I added more glue to the cup and placed it on the larger of the two circle to finish off the top.
Repeat all of the previous steps to create the bottom. Note: the bottom is slightly smaller than the top. Don't mix up your pieces or the lid won't slide over the top the way it is supposed to.
Here's a picture of what the bottom of my box looks like completed.
I cut a strip of orange cardstock and embossed it using Cuttlebug Embossing folder and attached it around the lid of the box.
I added a scallop circle, a white circle and two bats to the top. Hand wrote Spooky Treats and some swirls with a purple marker. Added purple glitter glue to the bats and as dots on the scallops of the orange layer. Tied a piece of ribbon around the lid. Fill it with goodies and share gift it to a friend!
I hope you enjoy making this box. I plan to make the pattern in several sizes. All the shapes used are from George. Finished size is approximately 3" wide and 2" tall.
