Haunted Halloween Treat Box

Good morning blogging friends! Today, I have a fun and whimsical Halloween Treat Box tutorial to share with you.

How fun is this little treat box with the bats flying through the air! I was so happy with how this treat box turned out and it was pretty quick and easy to make.

For the base of the box I used Posh Tangelo Dungaree cardstock from Discount Cardstock. I used the Grand Calibur and LF-010 Square Bracket Edge Box from Spellbinders to cut/emboss the pieces for the box. Then I used a bone folder when folding to make sure I had nice crisp folds. I applied Crafty Power Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ on all of the tabs and then assembled the box.

Here is a picture of the top and bottom of the box.

Next I used Midnight Black cardstock from Discount Cardstock along with the Grand Calibur and S4-280 Halloween Fence Scenes & Shapes to cut/emboss two of the picket fence die cut shapes. Then I used a 2-way glue pen to adhere the die cuts around the top of the box.

To create the little bats I used Midnight Black cardstock from Discount Cardstock and the S4-277 Nested Bats die templates to cut/emboss the shapes. Then I coiled some Black wire from Artistic Wire and glued to the back of the bats. For the eyes I used Baby Bling Red Rhinestones from Want2Scrap™.

I used Midnight Black cardstock with S4-280 Halloween Fence Scenes & Shapes to cut/emboss two haunted houses and then I cut out a piece of Orange 65# and I layered all three pieces with the Orange 65# in the middle. To add the bats I tucked the wire in between the layers and added some glue to hold the bats in place and close off the top of the house.

Now you can fill the little box with some goodies for your little ghost or goblin. Both Posh Tangelo Dungaree and Midnight Black are on sale this week at Discount Cardstock. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a creative day!!
