Trick or Treat Boxes

I really enjoyed making these Halloween boxes and they hold quite a bit of goodies, too. The kiddos will definitely love them! The boxes are filled with snack size gold fish, teddy grahams, rice crispy treats, peanut butter crackers, raisins, gum balls and candy bracelets.
Each box is made from a full sheet of 12x12 card stock, scored at 3 & 9 inches, turned and scored again at 4 1/2 & 7 1/2 inches. The corners are carefully folded as it forms the completed box. I attached eyelets on each side for the handle (rebar tie wire).
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the spider web and skull, then inked them to bring out the embossing. The spider, bats, ghosts and skull images were cut with my Cricut.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween!

Halloween Treat Box

Halloween is such a fun time at our house and I just love handing out candy and seeing all the interesting costumes. As I was searching one of my favorite blogs for inspiration, I came across this video/project and decided to give it a try. I love how it turned out and can't wait to make more. I'm pretty sure my nieces and nephews will enjoy them filled with lots of goodies! (click on the link above or visit mychicnscratch.com for instructions)
The box is made from a 12x12 piece of card stock and the handle is rebar tie wire. I used the Cuttlebug Spiderweb embossing folder and inked using Martha Stewart Sterling Metallic ink. The spider and bats are from Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. The skeleton stamp is Twick or Tweet from Stampin Up along with Eggplant ink.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
