Corn Candy Milk Carton Box

I'm back with a project for this week's Cutting Cafe challenge. I was sick and missed out on the last challenge, so it's been awhile since I've done anything creative.

Regina challenged us with our choice of two files: 
Halloween Fall Milk Carton or
3 Halloween Treat Cup Cards

Both are such fun files to work with. I chose the first, but also chose to include the file Candy Corn Trio Shaped Card Template. I did this, because I wanted to try and make a Corn Candy Milk Carton.

To create this box, I just opened one of the milk cartons and in Silhouette, erased the shaped lines and then copy and pasted one of the candy corn images from Candy Corn Trio Shaped Card Template and pasted and centered it where the other image was.

I cut a piece of orange designer paper to fill the opening and then adhered the top and bottom pieces to the orange piece. I made a "belly band" to fit around the top to hold it closed and then added some orange and black twine with a sentiment.

I used Tombow's Xtreme Adhesive to glue the box shut and Mono Glue Stick to adhere the panels to the box and candy corn pieces to the orange panel.
I'm really liking how it turned out. These are so quick and easy to create, that you could make several of them in no time. Just you say Candy Corn or Corn Candy? For some reason in our family it was Candy Corn.
