Do you love a mystery?  Do you like to play games?  Create this great clue filled files box and have a time of mystery and fun!

Start by using your paper trimmer to cut a 6” x 6” piece of the Master Detective Collection by Graphic 45.

Place the patterned paper on the Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers at the 2” mark and score and punch the paper.

Slide the paper down to line up with the 4” mark and punch and score again.

Turn the paper around as shown and repeat the previous steps scoring and punching at 2” and 4”.

Rotate the paper to one of the sides that has not yet been punched and line up each of the score lines and punch and score again.

Move it to the other side and line up the score lines, but only punch on this side.  Do not score at all.  This will create the top of the box.

This is how your piece should look at this point.  Notice how the upper right corner is not scored?

Line up the section that was not scored in your paper trimmer and cut off the corner.

Use a pair of scissors to cut up to, but not over the horizontal score line to create the flaps of the box.

Fold all of the score lines.

  

Add tape using a tape runner to the flaps as shown and assemble the box.  Notice which side of the paper the tape is being added on.  You don’t want to get it on the wrong side and have it facing the inside of the box.

  

Now, cut as many cards as you would like to have in the game and decorate them using the sticker sheet from the Master Detective line.  These cards are cut to 2 ¼” x 3 ½” for the patterned paper and has the 2” x 3” piece of cardstock added to write the “clues” on.  Use the stickers and designs of the papers as inspiration for the questions.  Some of them can be clues to, “who dun it”, others can be rooms or people and so on.  You can, also, use some of the cards that are included on the patterned paper sheets to add to the game.

Finish the game off by, also, decorating the box with your favorite sticker or stickers.

Invite your friends and family over to have fun playing a game of WhoDunIt with the game that you just created!

Play a game of mystery this Halloween or any time of year with this Great Holmes Clue File Box.  Keep it handy for whenever a time comes up to have some fun.  Take it to the next level and add even more cards to build up your files and just remember to have fun!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today! Check out Peg's blog, Peg's Crafting Corner to see what else she has been up to!
