The box I am about to share with is going to be one you make again and again! WHY??? Because it is EASY, takes little paper and it's versatile! Today's box is made to fit a clear gusseted bag with a flat bottom, found HERE. Fill these bags with any treat or fun think you like, set them in this box and decorate the box as you like.
For my boxes I went crazy with CEREAL and LIP BALM (again)!
When I stumbled upon the Cereal flavored Lip Balms the pack I bought had Frankenberry! Then I saw Frankenberry cereal when grocery shopping and that's when this idea was hatched. If you look closely at the box you will see a haunted house in the upper right corner. So that is what decorated the front of my box with and in the bag went Frankenberry Cereal. The tag holds the lip balm.
Here's how to make the box:
Cut a piece of card stock to 4-1/2" x 4"
Score on all four sides at 1". Snip on the score line to make four tabs.
Glue the box together, fill your Clear Bag with a goody and it fits right in.
Then you can decorate the box to dress it up if you like.
Like I did here, using the Spooksville Die set.
And I couldn't stop there, because not only is there Frankenberry Cereal, there is Count Chocula and BooBerry Cereal. It just so happens that there is also all of these flavors in Lip Balm, thank you Amazon!
The Lip Balm sleeve is a piece of Clear View Sheet. Here are the measurements:
Lip Balm Sleeve: 2-1/2" x 2-3/4"
On the 2-3/4" side score at 5/8", 1-1/4", 1-7/8", and 2-1/2"
Add a piece to the bottom so the lip balm does not fall out:
5/8" x 1-7/8" score at 5/8" and 1-1/4"
Use White Liner Tape to adhere the sleeve together and glue dots to attach the bottom piece.
These were just so much fun to make! Stay tuned and I will show you what I made with the hershey kisses box in the picture above.

In this video you will notice me cutting small pieces to cover each window. Then a customer of mine, Becky Martin, suggested that I use one big piece to cover the windows. GENIUS! Here's how I did that on my other two houses.
After die cutting the house, use the negative piece to trace on to the color of paper you want your windows to be, don't trace all the details, just a rough outline. Cut this out, cutting on the inside of your pencil line and glue it to the back of the house. DONE, I love it, thank you Becky!
Here are all the supplies I used:
