Halloween Treat Boxes

These are the little treat boxes I made to give out this year. Below are the instructions you need to create them :)
Owl Box
Cut Goldrush Cardstock at 5" Pillow Box <Shape11> Shift Font Layer
Cut Black Cardstock at 2" <Oval 2> then trim each side of oval at 3/4" to create 2 wings
Cut Honey or Sunny Yellow at 1 1/4" <Circle 5> Font Layer
Cut Colonial White at 1" <Circle 1> Card (Then cut in half. You could also just cut 2 circles)
Cut Black Cardstock at 1/2" <Circle 1> Card (Then cut in half. You could also just cut 2 circles)
Cut Desert Sand at 1/2" <Banner 4> Card

I assembled the piece on the owl before folding into a box.

Frankenstein Box
Cut Topiary Cardstock at 5" <Circle 1> Shift Font Layers for flat box.
Cut Topiary Cardstock at 3/4" <Circle 1>. Cut circle in half to create eye lids
Cut Colonial White at 3/4" <Circle 1> Card (Then cut in half. You could also just cut 2 circles)
Cut Black Cardstock at 1/2" <Circle 1> Card (Then cut in half. You could also just cut 2 circles)
Cut Black Cardstock 2 1/2 x 1/2 and trim with grass scissors or tear across.
Trim nose for scratch Topiary Cardstock.

First draw the smile on the base of the box. Them you can fold the box up and distress edges. You can also add scars too. Then assemble eyes using 3D foam tape for the lids and nose. Finally add hair to top.

Mummy
Cut Colonial White Cardstock at 4 1/2" <Square 1> Shift Font Layer for basket box
Cut Black Cardstock at 1/2" <Circle 1> Card (Then cut in half. You could also just cut 2 circles)
Cut Colonial White Cardstock at 2 1/4 (or 2 1/2) x 8 and tear into about 1/2" strips.
Cut scrap Colonial White for nose into small triangle

Distress the strips with desert sand and glue onto the front and back of box. You could cover the whole thing if you want but I just did the front and back. Then attach the eyes and add google eyes on top of black circles. You could always layer more circles of cardstock to create eyes instead of google eyes too. Finally attach distressed nose with 3D foam tape.

Spider
You need York peppermint patties or other similar size candy for this one.
Punch two Black Cardstock circles using the 2" scallop punch.
Cut four Goldrush (or Sunset) 1 1/2" <tag3> Font for the legs
Cut Colonial White Cardstock at 1/2" <Circle 1> Card (Then cut in half. You could also just cut 2 circles)
Cut Goldrush (or sunset) at 1/2" <Circle 1>

Distress all pieces except eyes. Draw black pupils on the eyes close together. Attach the eyes to the front of one punch then using 3D foam tape attach the nose. Attach 2 legs to the back of this punch. Then using a glue dot attach to the candy. Attach the last two legs to the other punch and then attach to the back of the candy. The spider should stand up on it's own.
