Creepy Candy Box Book

1. This is a pretty simple tutorial with no EXACT way to do it. In fact you should adapt it to the box you use. Besides the box you will also need a hole punch, scissors, paper, and ribbon or some other fiber to bind the book.

2. Break the box down so that it lies flat. For my box I only had to open up the bottom.

3. Figure out how you want your book to open. You can use an existing fold for the spine or cut two identical pieces for the book cover and back. Trim away any excess pieces. On the front cover about inch from the spine, make a fold that opens towards you. Punch holes to thread your ribbon through later. They should be between the fold and the spine perhaps even on the fold.

4. Trace the shape of your book onto paper. I used 3 pieces and traced it twice. Be sure to mark guides for the holes. Cut about an eighth of an inch inside the line. Punch the holes in the paper, put pages into the cover and thread ribbon through holes. I used the blanket stitch to bind mine. I'm sure you can do something soooo much cuter with a lot of fibers and beads. I wasn't being very particular.

C-bug's new Halloween sticker book Go look at this Foam Pumpkin TV set tutorial from the Crafty Chica. I might(?) make one or do something similar to make a halloween nightlight.
