I love to create Halloween treat boxes, I think they are a great handmade gift for someone special! These boxes are very simple and the best part is that you don’t need any special Halloween supplies to create them!
To create these flip top boxes, start by cutting a 9 2/8 x 6 7/8 inch patterned paper. Score it on the long side at 1/2 inch, 3 5/8 inch, 4 7/8 inch and 8 inches. Next, rotate the paper and score on the short side at 1 1/4 inch, 4 3/8 inch and 5 5/8 inches.
Score all the lines and cut the two left section of your box. Cut the lines you see on yellow and score the ones you see on orange.
Assemble your box by gluing the lids. You can use some sharp scissors to cut a triangle on the side of the lid.
Decorate the boxes with black and white cardstock and some monster eyes! The boxes are ready to be filled with your favorite treat!
I added some teeth, eyebrows, horns, spots and even some hair made with a tassel! Kids could help you decorate the boxes, I am sure they can come up with some spooky monsters!
Aren’t these boxes fun? Who says you can’t use a regular collection for Halloween?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
