I’ve fond memories of trick or treating as a child. Not only would we go throughout our neighborhood but we would gather with church friends and also collect for UNICEF – the United Nations Children’s Fund. Anyone else remember carrying those little orange boxes around collecting donations? Those little coin donations added up to large amounts of money helping others in need.
A week of Halloween Treats!
This week will be devoted to Halloween posts to help you prepare for the coming witching season. Using packaging products from Stampin Up you can create cute, fun treat bags, cards, and decorations! Today’s images came from the Frightfully Cute stamp set. This also has coordinating framelits and when you purchase as a bundle you save 10% off the individual prices!
Not a fan of Halloween?? No problem! Change the stamp images and sayings along with the DSP to coordinate with other holiday seasons!
I shared this adorable treat box on my FB live last night which was CASED by a project from Erica Cerwin. Her theme was using the adorable penguin paper but there are so many different possibilites to this treat box – definitely has a wow factor! Think Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Birthday, etc. So many ways to use this!!
Directions and Template
MILK CARTON TREAT BOX:
Begin with an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock
On the long side, score .5, 4, 5.75, and 9.25 inches
Turn a quarter turn to the right
On the short side, score .75, 2.5, and 6.75 inches
Use a bone folder to crease score lines. Refer to picture below to remove tabs and cut notches.
Round corners on remaining tab.Using tear and tape create the box and the bottom. Mark and
punch holes for the ribbon.
Front of box measurements:
Card stock measurement 3 and 3/.8 x 4 and ⅛
DSP 3 ¼ x 4
Small card stock 2 and ⅜ square
DSP 2 ¼ square
Ribbon color changes just a blend away!
The black and white gingham ribbon looks super with the Old Olive/Basic Black treat box, but not so much with the Pumpkin Pie one. Easy fix though when using your Pumpkin Pie Blends to add color!!
Such a fun treat box to please all of your visiting trick or treaters, so until next time, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!
