Frankenstein Open Mouth Treat Box

Frankenstein Open Mouth Treat Box-JMRush
Approximate Size: W 3.75” x D 1.25”x H 4.25”
Approximate Box size: W 2.5” x D 1 x H 4” 

This box opens by lifting the character’s head to to expose the opening to the treat box. This simple to construct design would be perfect to hold your goodies for Halloween parties. This design is compatible with both 8X12 and 12X12 mats. 

You can purchase this Silhouette design file or SVG bundle here:

1. Cut the design pieces. ( I used double sided card stock)
2. Glue the green Frankenstein head with eye cut outs to it’s coordinating solid base on the flip piece (long shape with a cut out oval and screws on either side);aligning with at the edges and at the eye holes. Fold the score lines on the box base.
3.-4 Apply glue to the two small vertical side tabs at the bottom of the box base. Secure the two small vertical side tabs to the 1 inch (width) rectangles just above them. 
5. Apply glue to the very left corner of the horizontal tab just below the two side tabs that you just glued. ( My finger is pointing to the section in the photo:) Secure this corner to the vertical tab to the left.
6. Apply glue to the topside of the vertical and horizontal panel. Secure the final panel creating a complete box.
7.-8. Flip the long flip piece over ( so the backside is showing). Apply glue to the entire piece and attach the white piece with an oval cut out to it’s matching shape and the white piece with teeth to it’s coordinating shape. 
9. Apply glue to the backside of the green rectangle with teeth cut outs and attach to the coordinating shape on the combined flip piece. Glue the silver screws to each side at the coordinating shapes on the combined flip piece.
10. Secure the tab on the box base by tucking the tab on the inside of the box and feeding it through the slot. (Apply glue to the underside of the tab and secure to the box if you wish)
11.-12. Flip the box base over and glue the combined flip piece; aligning the oval cut outs in the middle.
13.-14. Close the combined flip piece. Glue the scar and long rectangle eyebrow piece into place. Use small pieces of foam adhesive square to attach the small long oval screw head pieces to each side. Fill with candy:)
