DIY Halloween Treats

Hello guys!

I’m so excited to share with you a fun Halloween project I came up with. It’s super simple to do and you don’t need any fancy craft supplies to recreate it! So why not! Perhaps you can make it with your children as well!

I’d like to mention that this project was inspired by a talented paper crafter Anna Kossakovskaya. I made a girlish and a boyish version of chocolate boxes since I’m going to give the treats to my little niece and nephew, but you can personalize this project even more by adding a name, for example.

First of all you gonna need a piece of card stock and a chocolate bar, of course. Take measures of your chocolate bar (width, length and heights), calculate the dimensions of the card stock you need for the project and mark the score lines on it:

Horizontally: half of your width – heights – width – heights – half of your width.

Vertically: any measure you like up to half of your length – heights – length – heights – any measure you like up to half of your length.

Make score lines as indicated on the picture below. If you don’t have a scoring board, use a simple ruler (anyone has a ruler at home, right!).halloween-box-1Now cut out 4 corners following the graphic below. And you DIY chocolate box is done.halloween-box-2Now all you have to do is to apply some embellishments and tied a twine around to close the box. On my projects I used digital stamps from Jess Crafts Digitals and a freebee digital sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs as I could resize them to fit my box, but you definitely can use anything you have on hand: print and color any Halloween image from web, use some stickers or any other embellishment to suit your occasion.
