I made more pencil boxes for anyone who is looking for a non-candy treat for Halloween.

I made more pencil boxes. This time I made them with products from our Monster Bash Suite. Oh! And that spider?...It’s made with the 1” Circle Punch and the Daisy Punch.

Aren’t these boxes fun? After I shared my Back to School Pencil Boxes on August 26th, I just had to create more. That is one of my “personal issues”…needing to make several versions of the same project or card. 🤪

Below are the instructions.

    • 8-3/4″ x 4″ scored parallel to the long side at 3/8″, 1-7/8″, 2-1/4″ and at 1/4″ from the other end AND scored parallel to the short side at 3/8″, 3/4″ and at 3/8″ from the other end (see photo below)
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 7″ x 1-3/8″
    • 7-5/8″ x 1-3/8″ scored at 1″ from each end

School is starting soon! Send them back with a fun and festive box of pencils. I decorated mine with the Dinoroar Designer paper, images from the Royal Peacock and the Make A Difference stamp sets, and some Leaves Trinkets.

Directions for the skinnier box:

  • Score and cut out tabs from the Terracotta Tile Cardstock as shown. Use a 1/2″ Circle Punch to make the thumb slot.
  • Assemble box using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

  • For the 7-5/8″ x 1-3/8″ Basic Black Cardstock, cut down the middle of the ends just to the 1″ score lines. Punch small holes at each end – one where the cut and score line intersect and two at the ends of the score lines.

  • Assemble box using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Adhere designer paper to the 7″ x 2-3/4″ Basic Black Cardstock.
  • Stamp sentiment the Highland Heather scrap, then die-cut with the Ornate Frames die. Die-cut the Black Foil scrap with the coordinating Ornate Frames die. Layer these two together and add to the box using Black Dimensionals.
  • Punch the 1″ Circle and the Daisy from the remaining Black Foil scraps. Cut the Daisy equally into four sections – two petals (legs) per section. Put SNAIL on the back of the 1″ Circle then attach these pairs of spider legs so there is lots of space where the head and abdomen will be. Add Googly Eyes with Glue Dots. Then add the spider to the box using Black Dimensionals.
  • For the 7-5/8″ x 2-3/4″ Basic Black Cardstock, cut down the middle of the ends just to the 1″ score lines. Cut down the middle of each of those two sections. Punch small holes at each end – three where the cut and score lines intersect and two at the ends of the score lines.
  • Add a rubber band to each end: loop around half of one of the halves of each end, then twist and loop around the other half.
  • Insert pencils. Put pencils into the box and close the box.

By the way if you are on Facebook and you prefer to watch “how-to” videos rather than reading through directions, join my Stamp Your Art Out Exclusive Group on Facebook. Once in the group, click here to have access to a video recording of me making these boxes. It’s a very casual video, so I’m keeping it exclusive to this group. Today at 12:30 PM Central Time I’ll be sharing how to make cracker boxes. Hope you can join in!
