More Halloween fun…can you tell it’s one of my favorite holidays? It’s right up there with Christmas in my book.
I decided to create some treat boxes today for my grand daughter to take to school for her little friends.

Batty Treat Box Free SVG file and Tutorial
Start out by cutting out the bats. You’ll need a cutting machine such as a Silhouette or Cricut. I have the Silhouette Cameo and love it! I would highly recommend it, the possibilities of what you can make are endless!

Directions for Treat Box:
Take a 6″ x 6″ piece of cardstock
Place in your Envelope Punch Board at the 1-1/2″ mark, punch the paper and score it.
Move the paper to the 4″ mark, punch the paper and score it.
Turn the paper, line up the score mark with the pointer on the Punch Board, punch the paper and score it. I’ve drawn in the score lines so its easy to see.
Move the pointer to the next score line, punch it and score it.
Repeat for the other 2 sides. Your paper should look like this:
Flip your Envelope Punch Board and round off all the corners.
Fold and crease on all the score lines.
With the wide edges pointed up away from you, cut up to the score lines on both sides as shown.
I marked the bottom of the box here. Put score tape on the outside of the two flaps that form the bottom and tape them onto the bottom page.
Put score tape on the edge of the 2 front flaps and bring up the front piece to adhere, now your box is formed!
Cut a strip of coordinating paper 1-1/4″ x 8″ and using a score board, score at 1″, 2-7/8″, 4-1/2″ and 6-3/8″.
Put score tape on the edges of the small end as shown and adhere to the end flap.
Your box is finished, its time to decorate!
I recommend Art Institute Glitter Designer glue, it dries clear and has a little give, a lot of glues I’ve tried once you lay it down you can’t move it…this is a fast drying glue but you can move it around right after you place it and I rarely get my pieces perfect the first time LOL. I use it with the Art Glittering System Ultra Fine Metal Tip for a more precision placement. Be sure you don’t accidentally grab your sewing pin and stop up the glue with it….I can say from experience that the pin rusts and turns the glue rust and black colored LOL.
I stamped “time to share” onto white cardstock, and used an oval die to cut it out.
I glued it to the top of the box and tied a bow and glued that on, then I glued the bats on and filled with candy…it’s ready to go!
