Chipboard Treat Box

My digital camera doesn't seem to want to work anymore, so I had to scan my cute little treat box. We are working on treats for our Halloween Party that is in 10 days!!! Just imagine this little box full of chocolate Halloween suckers (which we haven't made yet either!).
This box is made out of chipboard coasters. I just cut my retired Stampin' Up! designer paper that I had leftover from last year (my last piece!), into 4 x 4 pieces, used the corner rounder on each corner. And then I attached them onto the chipboard using my Stampin' Up! gluestick, which I personally believe to be the best at attaching paper to chipboard!
Next I made holepunches using my Cropadile, (I used my tool kit hole guide to guide me in my hole placement so that they would be even.) Have you ever used your Cropadile to punch through chipboard? It is so easy!! I challenge you to make some holes using a regular hole punch and then try it with the Cropadile, you'll never go back to your regular hole punch again!!!
And then I tied all the pieces together using my Stampin' Up! ribbon. I used white, yellow, and black gingham for this project. There are 5 pieces of chipboard coasters for this box, 4 on the sides and one on the bottom.
I will be adding shredded black/yellow/orange paper to fill up the bottom, and then filling with chocolate suckers that we will be making at some point next week. These will be placed on the table by our front door for everyone that is coming to our costume party after trick-or-treating next week! I can't wait!!!
Happy Stamping!
