Need to send in treats for a class Halloween Party? These Jack-o-lantern Homemade Halloween Treat Boxes are simple to make and sure to be a hit with the kids.
Now that my kids are back in school, my thoughts have turned to Fall and Halloween crafting. Although my baby is now in middle school (sob!) and there are no longer any class parties for me to make goodies for, I still enjoy making little Halloween treats to give to friends, family, and co-workers. I will probably make a couple for each of my kids to give to their close friends on Halloween as well.
This year I am making these cute Halloween pumpkin treat boxes for everyone. These adorable Halloween pumpkin party favors are made using the Curvy Keepsake die set from Stampin Up and a Jack-o-lantern face stamp. I love that these cute little pumpkins are just the perfect size for a fun sized candy bar or two. If you are trying to avoid giving out a ton of sugary treats, you could also fill them with spider rings, or other Halloween trinkets.
Supplies needed to make these homemade Halloween treat boxes:
You will also need these supplies and tools that you probably already have on hand:
- Cardstock in orange and green
- Black Ink Pad
- Strong Adhesive Tape Runner
- 1/2 inch natural ribbon
- Paper trimmer
- Die Cut Machine
Halloween Pumpkin Party Favors Instructions:
Cut a 6 inch piece of natural ribbon. I used a chevron pattern, but any natural colored ribbon would work as long as it is 1/2 inch wide. Use a leaf die (or leaf paper punch) to cut a leaf from green cardstock.
Use your paper trimmer to cut a piece of orange cardstock down to 6″ x 8.5″. Use the Curvy Keepsakes die to cut two treat box sides from the piece of orange cardstock.
Use a strong adhesive (like Fast Fuse or Tombow Xtreme Adhesive) to stick the two treat box pieces together as shown in the image above.
Using black or dark brown ink, stamp the jack-o-lantern face on the rounded sides. (These are the sides with the holes, not the slits.)
Fold up the 2 rounded sides and line up the holes. (The rounded sides are the sided stamped with the Jack-o-lantern face.) Then bring up one of the pointed sides and insert the rounded tab through the slit. Add your candy or treats, then bring up the other pointed side and pull the tab through.
Add a leaf to each of your Halloween pumpkin party favors. (I stuck the stem down in the slit so it doesn’t show.)
Fold the ribbon in half and insert the loop through the handle on the pumpkins. Bring the ends back through the loop and pull to secure. Cut the ends at an angle and that’s all there is to it!
