Frankie Box! Weekend Project

I made this cute Frankie candy box using the tissue holder pattern I created a while back. Just follow the tissue holder pattern but don't make a hole for the tissue. You can make a hole in the back and use acetate for a window if you wish. I opted not to. These boxes are simple enough to make and you can get two from one sheet of card stock.

I do recommend you fill them with wrapped candies or pour candies in a plastic baggie that is meant for food.

I just LOVE this Frankie guy!!! I used him as a milk carton and I also made him using a Crystal Light container. He's SO versatile!!! LOL And once again I forgot to put on the little white marks on the eyeballs to show a sparkle. And I had given it away after taking the photo so I can't go back and add it and redo the photo. But that's ok, it looks fine without it too. But I did add it later as with the other two projects too. Funny thing was that I saw it needed them before I got the camera out and between the moment of remembering I needed to add it to the time I got the camera out I forgot. SO sad to lose my memory so soon!!! LOL

I think you could have a lot of fun with this project. I can see doing this as a class project with kids and adults alike.

These make fun gifts, Make n Takes, Hostess Gifts, Customer Appreciation Gifts, they are great for Craft Fairs too!!!

Stay tuned for more 3-D Halloween items. I have several ideas ready to put together to share with you this week!!! You will have plenty of time to make them before Halloween, well... depending on how many you are making!!!! For me I make one or two to display ad rarely make more than that unless I am using them at a craft fair!!

Thank you ever so much for stopping by,
