Treat Bags and Boxes Part II

Today I have a quick and easy trio of treats that are pefect for slipping in a little fun sized candy bar or a small bag of mixed treats.  These cute little pumpkins are basically made out of a modified matchbook template that stands up to allow your treats to be tucked inside.  These little pumpkin treats are economical to make too - you can get three to a print sheet so there is not alot of paper used to make these babies!



I used Penny Springmann's I Want Candy digital kit to create these projects.  It was the perfect kit because she includes lots of cute pumpkin eyes, notes and mouthes to decorate the pumpkin face. 

Here's how to make these cute little treat boxes:
1.  Use THIS TEMPLATE to create three strips of orange paper to be your base of your pumpkin.
2.  In the section marked face, create the face of your pumpkin.
3.  Lighten the scoring lines to blend a bit with your paper and delete the text layer. 
4.  Print your pumpkins, trim, score and fold.
5.  I added some felt ribbon for the stem and then some green with white polka dots ribbon tied in a simple bow for the leaves.  You could even skip this step if you wanted. 
You're done - really it's that easy!




Wouldn't these be super cute to hand out to class full of kids or even at work.  You can adjust the width of the bottom fold (where the candy sits) to accomdate a larger or small sized treat.  If you are traveling with these I do suggest you adhere your treat to the bottom of the box so that you don't have candy flying everywhere (not that happened to me or anything.  LOL!)
