Tutorial: Doorhanger Spider Web Box

This is a tutorial for the doorhanger spider web box that is part of the Halloween Soiree kit at SVG Attic.  This box is also available in the Silhouette Store.

Here are the pieces you will have cut out.  I chose to use patterned cardstock for mine.  The black is the actual box, the green is the lining and the orange is the back.  There is also white and black spiders that I cut out of solid cardstock.  The pattern also includes another back piece that does not have the slit in the right side.  You only need one of the back pieces for this box.

Start with the box piece and bend the bottom flaps inward.

Fold the left side perforations in a mountain, valley, mountain fashion as seen above.

Repeat on the right side.

Take the back piece and fold up the bottom on the score line.

Add liquid adhesive to the flap.

Attach that flap to the inside bottom flap of the box, matching the edge of the box flap with the score line on the back piece.

Add liquid adhesive to the bottom and side flaps of the box.

Adhere them to the inside of the box along the bottom and back.

Apply glue to the tabs on the other side

and adhere them in the same fashion as the first side.

Now take the lining piece and fold the bottom flap upward.

To fit it in the box, you will need to hold the bottom flap up and curve the paper while inserting it diagonally.

Lower the insert into place.

Apply liquid adhesive to the back of the top edge of the insert

and press it to the back making sure that the lining is just below the slit in the back.

Then press the bottom of the insert into place in the base of the box.

Next, add the white spider on the black part of the box

and the black spider on the orange part.

To close the box, pinch each side

and insert the tab at the top front of the box into the slit in the back.

There is the finished project!

Here is a close up of the box part.

Feel free to embellish it and fill it with treats!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
