Batty for Halloween!

Last weekend we had a few friends over for dinner, and seeing as my table was set up for Halloween, I decided to make favor boxes with that theme in mind.

Bats

Equipment needed:

  • Martha Stewart scoreboard
  • Black card stock (12″x 12″ will make two boxes)
  • Wiggle eyes ( I purchased mine from Michaels craft store)
  • Score tape
  • Glue dots
  • White gel pen

1. Cut the black card stock into four 6″x 6″ pieces which will make two boxes

6 x 6 sheet of paper

2. Follow the instructions on the Martha Stewart scoreboard for a 2″ x 2″ x 2″ box.

cut the middle two score lines up to the horizontal line on both sides of the box.
