Bat box for sweets

1 – Assemble the box by using a strip of double-sided tape. Place the double-sided tape on the outside of the tab and fold the cardboard to make the sides of the box. Next, fold the cardboard at the bottom to make the base and close the lid. With the punch, make a small hole in the middle of the lid. Then cut out some strips of black washi tape to stick them on the edges of the box.

2 – Draw some sharp bat teeth on a white cardboard. Use the hole in the box as reference, as it will be the mouth. Cut out the teeth and stick them with glue on the bottom of the box.

3 – Now stick on the wings and eyes from the Halloween decoration kit with some glue. One wing on each side of the box and the eyes on top of the mouth. We like to use different-sized eyes.

4 – Crumple up strips of orange tissue paper and place them in the box to cover the bottom. Place the sweets on the paper and close the box. Your Halloween bat-box is ready!

3 – With a black felt-tip pen, draw triangles on top of the mouth and stick the eyes on top.

4 – Make a hole with the punch on the top of the box and thread the raffia rayon ribbon in so you can hang it. Crumple up pieces of tissue paper and place them inside with a few sweets. Your Halloween pumpkin box is ready!
