Halloween Treat Box Tutorial

Hello friends! How are you this Halloween Eve morning?!! 🙂 I hope well! I told you I’d be back with a tutorial on how to make the little box that I posted on Monday. Did you miss that post? Don’t worry, you’re not going crazy if you can’t find it! Hehe, it was a guest post over at Mammy 2 Grammy with some cute little witch treats for teachers/therapists.

Well, today I am going to show you how I made the little box with my Silhouette Cameo.

First you need to pick out 2 different colors of cardstock. I went with purple and orange. You will also need a glue pen that has a permanent and temporary bond, oh, and you can forget your handy Silhouette mat! 🙂 Scissors will also be handy, but not completely neccesary.

Open up the box file in Silhouette Studio and size it up to where you want it. I wanted my box to be bigger to fit the cookie treats on the bottom of it so I stretched mine to about 9.5 inches. You can see how big it looks in the photo below.

I cut out the orange box part and then the purple handle next.

Pull out your scissors or just tear off the top part of the box. I don’t know how to delete lines yet so this was the lazy/easy way for me to get rid of the top part of the box.

Once you cut off the top you’re ready to glue the sides together! Get to it now! 🙂

Figure out where you want the handle to go, glue down one of the sides permanently. Only ONE side!! If you do both you wont be able to open the box and get out the treats.

This is what the glue will look like when it is permanent bond.

And here it is dried as a temporary glue. Now, you can open and close the handle as many times as you want.

Here’s the finished project. Sorry about the crookedness! I didn’t realize how off I was until it was too late! lol

  1. I love my silhouette!!! Best purchase I have EVER made. I’m glad you introduced me to her. I need to give her a name. Sylvia. That’s it. Sylvia the Silhouette.

    1. I like the name Sylvia! I’ve never been big on naming inanimate objects. 🙂 but I think it’s fun that other people do. I agree that this machine is a good purchase!! It’s saved me TONS of time!
