Halloween Treat Box Tutorial


Wouldn't it be great to give these out on Halloween?



I absolutely love favors of any kind! Treat boxes, bag toppers, you name it - I want one for every season, well, maybe 2...or 3.

I came across a treat box template here, it was the perfect size.
I printed it on white cardstock and scored the lines for folding.




 Putting the box together is pretty straignt forward - fold it into a box shape, you'll get it the first try!
I used double sided tape to keep the box together.



Get out your halloween scrapbook paper!
The base of the box is 2 1/2". I cut a strip of the orange paper 2 1/2" wide and wrapped it around the box, trim off the excess. Adhere with double sided tape. I placed the tape on the corners and the rim for a snug fit.




Ahhhhh, finally I purchased the iron fence punch from Martha Stewart.
I love this punch. So, so , so  perfect for Halloween crafts.



Check out my black paper iron fence. Isn't it so cool?



I used double sided tape here as well to attach the iron fence.
Another simple way to trim around the bottom of the treat box is to use a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper or ribbon.



And here's the box after I attached more scrapbook paper, some embelishments and ribbon (just use a hole punch to make 2 holes through both sides of the top and feed the ribbon through and tie in a bow).



Isn't it just so purdy!

I so love your treat box. JoAnn's has the Martha Stewart halloween products 25% off I may go back tomorrow and see if I can find the fense punch. It really turned out good. I never have confidence in those products but I will give it another look. I love the orange background paper, ribbon is also wonderful.
