HALLOWEEN BAT BOXES
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Cardstock in Black
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Glue dots
- Crochet hook
- Metal ruler
- Joggle eyes
Trace the template for both box and wings onto black card. Cut out.
Using a crochet hook, score the dotted lines on the box. Use a steel ruler to score the straight lines. Gently bend each fold to prepare for box construction.
Apply glue to length of box on opposite side to flap. Fold box in half and fold flap to sit under glued edge and press together. Allow glue to dry.
On box back, apply a short length of glue on either side of middle and an equal length in centre. Attach wings in this position.
On front, stick joggle eyes in position. Firstly peel off paper backing then apply a glue dot to back of each eye. Typically the eyes would stick on fine on their own but as our box is flexible they need a little extra help this time.
Once glue is dry, fold in bottom box flaps, one over the other. Fill your bat with treats. Fold in top flaps to close.
