     Note~ I highly recommend watching the video to understand all of my directions   and how to punch the holes for the test tubes.

1. Cut 1 piece of Tangerine Tango card stock 4" x 9 1/2". Score at 1/2",1 1/2", 5", 6", 9 1/2".  Then score 3/4" in on the 9 1/2" length on both sides. I stamped the Sanded Background Stamp in Tangerine Tango ink onto the card stock before scoring.

2. Cut 1 piece of Tangerine Tango card stock 2" x 3". Score 1/2" on each side. This piece is for the inside to slide the test tubes into place. I then punched the holes with the 3/4" Circle Medium Punch. Watch the video to see how I did it!

3. Cut 1 piece of Basic Black card stock 2 3/4" x 3 1/4".

4. Cut 1 piece of Designer Series Paper Nite Owl 1 1/2" x 2 3/4". Then snail to the bottom of the Basic Black card stock in Step 3. I then wrapped 1/2 Stitched Pear Pizzazz Poly Ribbon around the top of the DSP.

5. Cut 1 piece of Tangerine Tango card stock 2 1/2" x 2 3/4". I sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango ink.

6. Cut 1 piece of Whisper White card stock 2 1/4" x 2 1/2". I stamped the skull From the Crypt in Basic Black ink. I sponged the edges with Tangerine Tango ink and then added two Designer Jewels Black Flourish to the upper right hand corner. I then snailed it down to the Tangerine Tango card stock  in Step 5, and added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and attached to the box.

7. Cut 2 piece of Basic Black card stock 3/4" x 3 1/4".

8. Cut 2 piece of Designer Series Paper Nite Owl 1/2" x 3". Snail to the Basic Black card stock in Step 7 then attach to the sides of the Test Tube Box.
