Halloween Treat Box-Snickers Candy Bars and More-So Much Fun!

And now for a fun way to give those "special people" in your life a Halloween treat.  We've designed a Halloween package that will hide the treat.......which is a Snicker's bar. If you've got some trick or treaters that are special to you then don't just give them the candy you're handing out on Halloween night.  Make this easy but fun Halloween/Snickers box.  You use your favorite Halloween paper to make these. You'll recognize the bat that we used  to wrap our Halloween book marks and also the bat garland. It's one that you can use for so many things, well worth the money.

We used double sided scrapbook paper for this project.  One side will be the box and the other side will be the tall back piece. We used black grosgrain ribbon measuring 3/4"  It looks nice and holds the candy bar inside the box. Make a Happy Halloween tag that has blank space on the left side so you can hide the end under the moon. Be sure to use foam tabs to attach the moon, bat and tag. We used the EK Success bat punch.

We've added the "Thanks for coming" tag  with a black backing on the front of this one so you can use it as a party favor. One side of this paper is Halloween sheet music and the other side is a black and orange.

We've added a medallion to this one and a cute Halloween button. You'll need a scoring board to make the medallion or you could fold it yourself.  We didn't add a ribbon here because we wanted the pumpkin faces to show.  Just put a glue dot on the ends of the candy bar to keep it inside the box.  We used a larger "Happy Halloween" tag for this package.

Use double sided scrapbook paper for this project. It just makes it so cute with two different designs/papers showing. But you could use a solid piece of scrapbook paper if you like.

I love this pumpkin paper. We found it at JoAnn's. We cut out and glued the pumpkin paper to the back of this box. That's something you can do if you don't like one side of a paper you're using.  We used a "Happy Halloween" tag that is clipped in at both ends for this one and added the "thanks for coming" tag without a paper behind it. We used 3/4" grosgrain ribbon here.

Cut your favorite Halloween paper 4 1/2" x 7 1/4" and score at the 3/4", 2", 2 3/4" and 4" marks on the scoring board.

Fold the scored lines to create the box as shown above. For this design you will now glue the box together.

We used a 2 1/4" circle punch for the moon. You could use a 2 1/2" circle too. Cut out a "Happy Halloween"  tag that has a blank space on the left and finally a black bat is punched out.

You know I like to ink and that's what we've done here on the moon and the tag.  We also scored some lines in the bat so it would have some dimension but you can leave it flat.

I love using the foam tabs. It looks so much better than just gluing directly to the paper. If you want more dimension you could stack two foam tabs on top of each other.  Foam tabs are a must!

We're almost done now.  You can fit a regular Snickers bar or an almond Snickers bar into the box. A package of M&M's fit but it did stick out on the ends a bit.

Slide the snickers bar inside the box. It will fit perfectly.

We used 3/4" black grosgrain ribbon here. Just tie a knot instead of a bow.  Now you're done. Wasn't that easy.  This also makes a fun Halloween gift for teacher and it is inexpensive but special.

Do you have our "You've been Booed" printable?  We include the "You've been Booed" sign for the window, a instruction sheet and some free "You've been Booed" tags plus a fun way to wrap up the treats.  Click HERE to go to that post.

  5. hi! how did you ink your moon tag? :D tks!!

    1. The photo of the moon and bats wasn't inked....I put a frame around it and then blurred it. The paper moon and paper bat was just inked by rolling the circle over an ink pad. Hope I answered your question.
