Tutorial - Test Tube Candy Treat Box Holder

Halloween will be here before you know it! 
I wanted to share with you a quick tutorial on making cute Test Tube Treat Box holders!  

First, download and print THIS TEMPLATE on the card stock color of your choice.
I am using Bazzill Card Shoppe circus peanuts card stock. 

Cut it out and score.
Use a 1" circle punch to punch out the opening of the treat box.



Add a strip of 1 1/8" x 4 1/2" strip of patterned paper of your choice and mat it.  
I am using paper from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor and Bazzill Card Shoppe licorice twist.  



Now flip it over and add three more panels of matted patterned paper.  
You will need two 1 1/4" x 2 1/8" panels and one 1 1/4" x 2 1/8" panel.
Add red line tape as shown below.  



Flip it back over again.  Fold upwards and adhere there the panels together.  
Add red line tape as shown below.


Finish folding making sure your panels with the pattern paper are showing on the sides.


Now you are ready to decorate!
I inked up the There She Goes Clear Stamps Hauntingly Delightful stamp set.     


 I colored the ghost with copics (C3, C1, C00,YR18, YR16, YR15), cut him out and adhered him to the front of the treat holder.  I used the PTI Tiny Tags die  to cut out a tag.  I stamped the sentiment on it and tied it on to the test tube filled with orange Skittles  with some 1/8" black and orange solid stitched center ribbon and some black licorice Divine Twine from the Ribbon Carousel.

You can by the test tubes HERE and the corks HERE.

Now head on over to the There She Goes Blog some of my fellow Trendsetters have also done some treat box tutorial!
