How to Make Halloween Treat Boxes


How to Make Halloween Treat BoxesInstead of buying boxes or goodie bags for your spooky Halloween treats, learn how to make Halloween treat boxes with this tutorial from Carlene Eshelman. Your treat boxes can be personalized with all your favorite Halloween embellishments. The best thing about these boxes is that they use recycled packaging materials to create the transparent windows in the box. Of course, if you don't have any plastic to recycle, you can just fill the treat box with a cellophane bag of candies as well.

    - cut 2 chipboard dies and 2 scrapbook papers
     - cut 1 box bottom using black cardstock

  • Spider webbing
  • Spider stickers
  • 2 black paper flowers
  • 16” tan twine
  • 12” orange ribbon
