Halloween Recipe Box

I have been going through some old magazines for different ideas for Halloween creations and came upon this in last years October, Paper Crafts magazine (pgs.15-17). It was made as an invitation to a Halloween party, but since I am not having a party for Halloween anytime soon I decided to put the recipe on the pull out. Kinda cute for a little housewarming gift if you bring the "brew". I used Pumpkin Pie for the base; the handle is SU's chipboard that I covered with paper and cut out with an X-acto knife; the witch's legs are from Making Memories Halloween glitter stickers: and the Brew bubble letters were from the dollar store. (If you haven't checked out your local store yet, hurry on over. They have great deals on lots of scrapbooking stuff) On the inside I typed the recipe from pg. 15 and printed it on a piece of Xerox paper so that it would roll easily. If you don't have the magazine the directions to make this are as follows:
Cut a piece of cardstock 8" x 3".
Score at 1/2", 2 1/2", and 5 1/2".
Using your X-acto knife, cut a 2 1/8" slit across the 1/2" fold.
Fold the 1/2" strip down and fold on the other score lines bringing the end up and under your 1/2" fold.
Secure with brads.
Embellish as desired.
Glue handle to typed recipe; roll up and put into the now triangle folder and bring handle up through the slit.
Now pull and out comes your recipe!
