Frankie tutorial

A quick and fun little goodie box for your friends, teachers and neighbors!
I wish I could claim this idea but I found it at Rose’s World. It is so darn adorable that I just had to give it a try! The green from the Quick Quote's Savvy Davvy line makes the perfect Frankie!


1. Cut a 4 ¼” x 10 ½” piece of cardstock.
2. Score the long side at 2 ½ “, 5”, 7 ½ “, and 10”
3.Score the short side at 1 ½”
4. Fold along the score lines
5. Cut at the 2 ½”, 5”, 7 ½”, and 10” score lines up to the 2 ½” score line.
6. At the 10” score line, cut out the ½” remaining tab.

7. Apply adhesive along the ½” tab and assemble side
8. Assemble the bottom of the box

9. For the eyes, punch out two ¾” white circles, one ¾” circle in green, two ½” circles in black.
10 Draw in the mouth with black marker.

1. Cut a 4 ½” square
2. Punch around the edges to create “hair”
3. Score at 7/8” all the way around.
4. On two opposite ends, slit the score line up to the 7/8” line to create tabs

5. Assemble the lid

Have fun with these adorable little guys!  I would love to see your version!

Thanks for stopping by!
