Hi, It’s Pam, from Pam’s Party and Practical Tips, and I am sharing today’s guest post. This week is a busy week. Many kids will be putting on costumes, attending parades, and trick or treating. They may also be having a class Halloween party. I am going to share a quick and easy way to put together a little something that would be a perfect for the party, that is also very affordable.
Have you ever seen the mini plastic boxes available at the dollar store? They come ten in a pack, making them only 10 cents each. I love these little boxes, because they make the perfect size party treat box.
Last year I made a collection of Halloween treat boxes that included a witch, vampire, mummy, Frankenstein, spider and owl. Since there are some children who do not participate in Halloween, I know some schools want a more harvest type of party theme. This year I came up with a few new designs that would be good for either type of party.
What is fall without candy corn? Using cardstock, I put together a paper candy corn the size of the treat box. I then filled it, full of yummy candy corn.
M & Ms are another candy classic. This treat box could be used at any time, not just at Halloween. I cut a circle a little bigger than the size of the round box, and then cut out the paper M, using the Ms on the bag as a guide. I don’t think the candy in this box will last very long. I love M & Ms!
I wasn’t really sure what to use for my last box. Then I saw a bag of Hershy bars. I found a piece of cardstock that was close to the color of chocolate, and made it slightly bigger than the box. This box could be filled with mini candy bars, or any kind of chocolate. The candy bars I bought for Trick or Treat night were a bit too big, so I opened a couple and broke them into smaller pieces. I guess this means I need to eat them now.. 🙂
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!
