Handmade Candy Corn Countdown Ferraro Rocher Favor Box for Halloween

How about a Handmade Candy Corn Countdown Ferraro Rocher favor box video to end off this year’s series? 

I was inspired for this project from the Ferraro Rocher popper box from Julie DiMatteo.  I tweaked the design to make a cute “pumpkin-ish” holder great for fall or Halloween.

How cute is that?  The perfect size for both Ferraro Rocher treats AND another candy I found that is ideal for Halloween. 

I made up a bunch of these in three different seasonal papers for my Holiday Catalogue Open House last week.

Handmade Candy Corn Countdown Ferraro Rocher Favor Box for Halloween

Everyone who attended thought they were fabulous and thought I used a framelit to make them!  But there isn’t a framelit at all. It’s made using your envelope punch board and Stampin’ trimmer and a 4″ x 6″ piece of designer series paper.

I’ll get right to the video, but first let’s take a peek at the supplies you need to make these sweet treat holders.

Ok, grab your popcorn.  It’s video time!

 

Handmade Candy Corn Countdown Ferraro Rocher Favor Box for Halloween 

 

 

Here are a few TIPS I found for making this Ferraro Rocher favor box for Halloween:

  • a smaller patterned paper is better as you may not be able to see all the larger patterns on this small-ish treat holder
  • use Liquid Glue rather than Tear & Tape as your T&T can be seen through the “divets” on that 1/2″ overlapping piece
  • if your patterned paper is directional at all (like in these witches brooms below), make sure you cut it so the LONG edge (6″) runs the OPPOSITE direction
  • for friends and little ones who may have an allergy to nuts, you can see through the “divets” to the candy inside to tell if it is the nut Ferraro Rocher or another candy
  • several of the Takeout Treats sentiments fit right on the favor box, but the longer one’s banner was the perfect size to frame the front of the treat
