These are the easiest Halloween treat boxes ever! As a mom of three when the holiday season approaches, I find myself filled with dread at the sheer number of teachers I find myself making treats for. However, this year I decided to get a jump-start on things!
I started off with this sweet Halloween paper pack. I picked out a few of my favorite designs and cut them down to 4×6 pieces. You will need two 4×6 pieces for each treat box. Using my Platinum 6™ Die Cutting Machine I quickly ran my papers through the pillow box die. I have a fancy electronic cutting machine, but sometimes a little arm power goes a long way, and it’s way faster!
Once I had my pieces cut, I folded the scored edges over and applied some regular glue stick glue. I laid them right sides out one on top of the other and then stuck them under the edge of my machine to dry.
Once they were dry, I gently popped them open and folded the top edges in. I filled them with candy and then tied a coordinating ribbon around them. BAM I was done with some fun Halloween treat boxes for ALL the teachers in my life.
I know that a little package of candy doesn’t come close to saying thank you for all the hard work and long days they put in with my kids, but I like to think that the thought makes up for it. Do you do treats for teachers during the holiday months?
