I don’t know about you, but creating orange and black things in October is one of my favorite things to do. I got a box of supplies from Stampin’ Up! and couldn’t wait to get started playing with it all. Today I’m going to show you these cute and simple Halloween Treat Boxes you can make.

The supplies you’ll need for this project are:
- Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper
- Happy Haunting Cardstock Pack
- Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies
- Sweet Hauntings Stamp Set
- Tangelo Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad
- Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad
- Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad
- Note Tag Punch
- Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine
- SNAIL Adhesive
The best part about these treat boxes is that you can make them be whatever color and pattern of paper you want. I picked out a striped orange and a black polka dot paper from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper for mine. I grabbed my Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies and my Cuttlebug.
Using my Cuttlebug, I cut out two of each pattern of paper from the pillow box die. Then I grabbed my adhesive.
These boxes are so easy to put together. You fold the side in on both pieces, and then glue them together.
It creates an oval type shape. Now you are ready to fold in the sides.
Fold the ends of your box in.
Now you are ready to stamp your images. Grab a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock from the Happy Haunting Cardstock Pack, Tangelo Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad, Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad, and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Pad. Then grab the Sweet Hauntings stamp set. Stamp the images onto your Very Vanilla cardstock. To get your images to stamp well, use a very solid surface. I like to use an old wood cutting board.
Cut out your poison bottles, and use the Note Tag Punch to punch out the tags. Attach them to your pillow box. It may be easier to attach them if you flatten the box.
Use a hole punch to punch a small hole in the top of your tag.
Using the Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine, tie it around the pillow box, and then attach your tag.
I kept the black polka dot box a little more simple and didn’t add any poison bottles to this one. I also turned the box the other direction from the orange striped one.
I adore they way these turned out, it makes me want to make a bunch of them, fill them with treats, and find anyone I can to give them to. 🙂
Who would you give these cute boxes to? I can’t wait to use this pillow box die to make some for Thanksgiving, and some for Christmas. They are going to be SO cute!!!
