Halloween Triangle Boxes

Hope you aren't tired of Halloween projects yet because I have several more to share with you.  Today it's the triangle box.  These are simple boxes that can be made into so many different things.  (My regular customers will recognize it as the Santa Hats from last year's Christmas Classes).

My first idea was to turn the triangle box into Candy Corn:
Colors: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight.  Accessories: Simply Scored, Daffodil Delight Ribbon.
I just didn't love it as much as I thought I would, but you tell me what you think.  Maybe it's because I don't just love Candy Corn.  I'd much rather eat yummy caramel instead.  Then while I was searching for something else online I came along several different versions of a triangle box Witches Hat.  So this is my take on that:

Colors: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White.  Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits, Wicked Cool, and It's a Wrap Holidays. Punches: Curly Label, 1" circle, and small oval. Accessories: Pumpkin Pie Prints Designer Series Paper and Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Shimmer Paint, Brushed Silver Card Stock.

At my Spook-tacular Stampin' Buffet, you can choose to fill these hat boxes with chocolate nuggets that are decorated with the It's A Wrap Holiday stamps. Just a cute little touch.

Triangle Boxes are very easy to make.  Start with any size rectangle.  The skinner the rectangle, the taller the box.  Both of mine are 4-1/4"x11.  Then you just score in the middle on the long end.  Find the middle of the ends and then score from that point to the edge of the middle score line.  Clear as mud?  Here's a little diagram that might help.
So you score where it is orange and then fold up the box.  Punch holes in the top to tie shut.  So simple!

Come back for a look at a couple Halloween Cards tomorrow and some BLOG CANDY on Saturday!!!  You won't wan to miss that!

I love these boxes!! Especially the witch's hat! But I am not understanding the folding AT ALL. Help please? Are the flaps on the side and the bottom?

Love the fun boxes! I love them both. The candy corn is more visually striking, but the witches hat is darn cute!
