One of my favorite things about Autumn is that it’s the beginning of TREAT season! Seriously, I think I consume more sugar from October to December than the entire rest of the year combined! Candy Corn kicks it off for me – I love it! So, naturally, since I find inspiration in things I love…that’s how these little “Quick Gift: Candy Corn Treat Boxes” came to be! I’m going to fill them up with candy (perhaps even candy corn) and give them to a few special people!
Here’s how you can make these candy corn inspired treat boxes too!
Start with a “carrot” cut file from the Silhouette store. Use your software to remove the hole in the top of the carrot – now you’re left with a long, skinny triangular box. Cut from cardstock.
Cut a template of the front of the box from a scrap of cardstock – then cut it into three pieces – one for each color on the candy corn! Now use the template to cut three pieces of patterned paper:
Place the patterned paper on the front of the box.
Add additional embellishments – I love the little cards from the 6×6 paper pad for this project. I also added some printed die cuts with foam adhesive, and a even some puffy stickers on some of my boxes.
Now fold it up into the box shape and fill it full of treats!
That’s all there is to it! You can make one, or a dozen – they really are quick and easy!
Here’s a closer look at some of the other shaped boxes:
