Now that everything is ungrouped, you’re going to want to re-group the two purple rectangles. To do this, head over to the list on the right-hand side of your screen. On the list, select each purple rectangle by holding “ctrl” on your keyboard and clicking on both rectangles. Then, head over to the top-right corner of your screen and click “Group.”

With the newly-grouped purple rectangles selected, head over to the right-hand bottom of your screen and select “Weld.”

Your file is ready to be cut, so head over to the “Make It” button on the top right-hand corner of your screen and click it.

You will be taken to a screen where you will be prompted to place your cardstock on your grip mat. For this project, begin with the black cardstock.

Click on the “Continue” button on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.

You will then be taken to a screen where you will be prompted to turn the dial on your machine to “Light Cardstock.” Then, you will load the grip mat into your Cricut and press the flashing arrow button. Once it’s loaded, press the flashing “C” button and let your Cricut work its magic!

Once the cut is complete, remove it from the grip mat and set aside.

Now, it’s time cut out the purple portion of your Bat Treat Box. This will serve as the box’s inner layer.

Place your purple cardstock onto your grip mat. Load it into the machine then press the flashing arrow button. Once it’s loaded, press the flashing “C” button and the Cricut will begin cutting your piece.

Gather your two pieces and have tape or glue dots ready.

Begin by folding the black portion of your project. Fold its four sides inwards. On each end of treat box’s sides, you will notice tabs. Fold those inwards.

Pro tip: use a scoring tool to fold over the sides of your treat box.

Now that everything is pre-folded, fold the sides of the box upwards to give it its form. Connect the tabs to the corresponding sides and secure with tape or glue dots.

Next, fold the sides of the purple piece inwards. Place a piece of tape or glue dot on the bottom side of the piece and gently insert into your bat box. This serves as an inner layer for your treat box.
