Halloween Treat Boxes!

I saw these great Halloween gift boxes on Beth's Blog Inkredible Creations.

Through her blog I was then linked to Kerry's Paper Crafts which is where Beth pulled the idea from. After watching Kerry's video, I had a revelation.

"OH MY GOD, I CAN TOTALLY MAKE THAT!" "HECK I EVEN HAVE THOSE BOXES SITTING UP IN MY CRAFT ROOM, JUST WAITING FOR A GREAT IDEA!"

I Purchased the boxes from the Dollar Tree and all the great Halloween toys (Halloween Pencils, Halloween erasers, spider rings, straws, pumpkin suckers, candy mix, and the great treat bags to put the candy in). Then I purchased the paper from Michaels (regular $14, but my cheap butt had a %50 coupon, score!) The Happy Halloween black ribbon is from Michaels also ($1.19). I used this ribbon to tie the treat bags closed. The Halloween stickers placed over the paper on the box were also from Michaels ($2.99 and $3.99 per package (I have a package left over)).

I had a total of 3 50% off coupons for Michaels. I used the other two to buy a paper cutter (regular $19.99) and double sided tape dispenser thing ($4.99). Anyway I have tons of stuff left over to make a lot more of these. I purchased the black acrylic paint from Michaels for $.59. Oh yeah the orange ribbon I had on hand, I bought it from Walmart for like $2 or something.

These were super easy to make and after I hand painted each one (while we watched Wolverine, great movie BTW) they took me maybe 5 min total to put each one together. I was sad when I finished

IF I CAN MAKE THESE, THEN SO CAN YOU!! I PROMISE!!

Just do what I did, I'm a serious visual person, and watch Kerry's video! THANK YOU KERRY!! Both Beth and Kerry have seriously cool and ridiculous arts and crafts projects on their blogs. You have to check them out!!

I've made 5 total so far. My son started bowling again on Saturdays and his cousin is on his team. I made 3 for my son, my nephew and their teammate to give out on Halloween when they bowl in the morning. The other two are for my other nephew and my neighbor's son RJ (those two are on the same bowling team too.)

I So want to make more. Did I mention how fun they were to make? I just don't have anyone to make them for.

So my Question for you is, would you buy these? How much would you pay for one? Would $8 be too much?

Just forget about the fact I told you were to get everything and how to make them yourself. LOL

Anyway, what you've all been waiting so patiently for.

MY HALLOWEEN TREAT BOXES!!

WOW! These are great! I love them! I have some boxes like that, I'm sure that I could make some, but here in England, we don't have Halloween that much, so I only give to the little ones.

Lisa Anne said...

So would you buy these? What would you pay for them.

I know you are going to make them yourself, I'm just saying, would you buy them if you couldn't make them?

Tater Tot Mom said...

These are completely adorable!

I know what you mean about changing blogs around all the time...I feel like I've finally found a design I like that fits me.

As for the name, I love Smell the Coffee Lisa but if your really wanting a change I thought Seriously Lisa was the best choice.

Emmy said...

Those are so cute!!

natalee said...

I love these Halloween bags!! PLEASE DONT CHANGE YOUR NAME!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I think my blogs name is stupid sometimes..lol.... Your name is awesome.. HUGS!!!

shortmama said...

Super cute!

Anonymous said...

I think just "Seriously?" is the best title. If you do "Seriously Lisa?" that is cool too. I like it more as a question then a statement. It is cuter, and its more of what I say to myself sometimes when I read your blog. My vote counts big time.... lol

You are one of the people I can't respond to from my blog. You mentioned security purposes which I understand. A suggestion I saw is you can make a special email for your blog using your blog name, so no one can find your personal information. Just a suggestion.

Mommynightowl said...

these are GREAT. You are so crafty.

I think you could maybe get $5-8 for them. They would be fun to sell at a farmers market.
