Halloween Cookie Boxes

I happened to see a photo of some cupcake boxes I made a few years ago and realized that I haven't used that Big Pro die in a long time.  This Sizzix die uses one 12x12 double sided card stock sheet to make each box.  It was fun to use the new Doodlebug Halloween papers (sold at HM Ben Franklin Crafts) to mix and match the covers with the box bottoms.
 Rather than attaching a piece of acetate to the inside of the box lid, I decided to let the cellophane cookie bag protrude through the die cut opening.
This allowed the cookies to be protected by the box while giving me a chance to add a tag and embellishments.
HM Ben Franklin Crafts has a great assortment of Dress It Up Halloween buttons and Little B/Doodlebug washi tapes to decorate the cookie boxes.  The reverse side of the Halloween papers are sometimes plain so the washi tapes definitely can add a punch of color around the lip of the box cover.
The scalloped cut out portion of the box lids became the tags for the bagged cookie treats.
I used Mambi Halloween stickers (from BFC) to further decorate the tags.
Here are the delicious cookies that will go into the cookie boxes for friends and family.  The flourless chocolate cookie recipe is a Martha Stewart one and can be found on her website.  I hope all of you will have a sweet, dark and delicious Halloween!
