Today we’re going to make Halloween peek through treat boxes!
I love the playfulness of this season. Not the ghoulish and scary parts, but the cute and whimsical.
It’s a great time to give out little treats nestled into a handmade box.
A box that’s so quick to put together, you’ll be making these for all the little witches and super heroes that make it to your door on October 31st!
Not Just for Hallowe’en!
But you know what? Even if you’re not into Hallowe’en, you can use this exact treat box idea for other special occasions!
What makes our little box so special today is we’re going to give it a little peek through window!
Just like this one we made in our live!
Isn’t that adorable?
And when you match the inside treats to the outside decorative elements, it’s a winner for sure! My treats came from a bulk food store that usually carries a variety of different occasion themed goodies at a great price.
Our Facebook live participants picked our colours. How do you like them?
For another fun Halloween treat idea, you’re going to love these make fast wrapped candy bar Halloween treatholders. They’re super FAST to make so in case you’re running out of time, you can do up a bunch of them!
I combined three stamp sets on our peek through box in the live video to create our jack-o-lantern faces and our greeting.
The Pick of the Patch bundle is the star of the show with the punched out pumpkins, stem and the biggest jack-o-lantern face.
This is a perfect example of how you can pull in different stamp sets to create your finished project.
Search your own stamps to see what ones you can use in multiple ways! You might have all the ingredients already to make up your boxes.
Let’s see my tips for making this box (and see the bloopers I had)!
