Seashore Blog Hop: Autumn Treat Boxes

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m hopping along with the Seashore Stampers again today, and this month our theme is Halloween or Thanksgiving.  I decided to create one of each! I rarely create cards for either of these, but I love making little treat boxes and gift items at this time of year! Usually I make items like this with my daughter, and she hands them out to her classmates at school – this year, she is learning at home, so everything is a little different, but we still enjoy crafting together!

I created this simple treat box really quickly and easily with a sheet of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and some matching In Color DSP.

It was easy to use one of the dies from Tasteful Labels and a small piece of window sheet to create a peekaboo window of the treats inside!

I decorated the box with punch art using my Cat Punch and a large circle of Bumblebee cardstock for the moon. The “trick or treat” stamp came from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. That stamp set has EVERYTHING in it!!

BONUS! After creating this little box, I decided to create a second box with a Thanksgiving theme. Wouldn’t these look sweet as Thanksgiving table favours?

These are such simple little projects, but it really makes me happy to know that I can create quick and easy gifts like this, for any theme, with the supplies I have on hand. I didn’t even need to buy a lot of Halloween-themed items in order to create a fun Halloween-themed project! I encourage you to look at the items in your craft room and see what fun ideas you can come up with!

I hope you enjoyed my projects! Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other creations! Click on “Previous” to visit Bruni’s blog and “Next” to see what MiRan has created!

  1. Love these really cute boxes, Laura! I guess I shall be making a couple now too! Can you direct me to a tutorial for the boxes themselves? or provide the size of the completed box? I will happily do a google search. happy smiles!

    1. Hi Bruni! I forget where I learned this originally, but here are the measurements:
      Cardstock: 9 x 4”
      Score at 1, 4, 5, and 8”
      Rotate and score at 1 and 3”

      1 7/8 x 2 7/8” (for top, if not cutting a window)
      7/8 x 2 7/8” (2pcs)
      7/8 x 1 7/8” (2 pcs)

      The finished box is 3x2x1″ so I call it the 3-2-1 box. Happy crafting and let me know if you need any help re-creating this! Smiles!
