Jack-O-Lantern Treat Boxes with Mitsyana

Hello, Crafty Friends! It’s Creative Team Member Mitsyana back again with Team Lori Whitlock! I have a cute Halloween treat for you… with these Jack-O-Lantern favor boxes! Halloween is creeping up around the corner and if you are a busy mommy like me then you’ll undoubtedly have to make classroom treats.

I have three school-aged kiddos and their classes have anywhere between 21- 25 kids in each.  That means this busy mama just got a little busier. So I need to make treats that are quick and easy but still have to super cute. I am so grateful for these SVG files from Lori Whitlock.  They take all the hard work out creating!

Supplies Used:

Gable Box Jack O Lantern Bundle
8 Fall Leaves 2
Patterned Paper (DCWV)
Xyron Mega Runner
Vintage Photo Oxide Ink & Blender Tool
Black Organza Ribbon
Mini Clothes Pins
Mixed Media Glue

You can purchase the Gable Box Jack O Lantern Bundle set in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop…Or  you can buy them individually from the Silhouette Store here:  Gable Box Jack-O-Lantern Small ,   Gable Box Jack-O-Lantern Medium, Gable Box Jack-O-Lantern Tall

I started by opening up my SVG file in my ecal software. I left the box sizes at its default setting for each box but removed the black panel backing. I like being able to see inside the little faces like little windows to give a peek of what’s inside.

These boxes were especially easy to put together. The boxes cut out in as a single piece and all you have to do is fold at the creases.

I used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the only side tab to the back panel. Then secured it down by burnishing it down with my bone folder. Tip: Folding the box down flat makes for easier burnishing.

Then, tuck the bottom flaps under and add adhesive to the inside of the very last flap to secure close. The boxes were all assembled to filled…  To close the treat box, just tuck the tabs into the side slots.  But I wanted to dress up my box tops… so I used Lori Whitlock’s 8 Fall Leaves 2 file to create a little topper.

I really like this three-tooth leaf and I think it most resembles one that you would find on a pumpkin.  Since I was making many boxes I filled my mat with multiple leaves measuring 2.5″ and 3″.

I peeled them off my cutting mat then crumpled in my hand to add texture. Then spread the leaf back out and took my blender tool and inked the edges and raised ridges with Vintage Photo Oxide ink.

I glued bows made from black organza ribbon onto the top of my leaves and secured them in place with mini clothespins. When the glue set I clipped each leaf to the top of each box.  And here are my finished treat boxes…
