Halloween Trick or Treat Pillow Boxes

Halloween is coming soon, and this week our design team is featuring treat boxes, bags, and other containers for gifting Halloween treat, not tricks. We thought you’d enjoy these clever Halloween Pillow Boxes from last year.

 

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here, and today I’m sharing a the Halloween pillow boxes I made for my kids using the Template Studio:

Template Studio Halloween Pillow Boxes Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

First, I chose which designer poster boards I would use – black glitter and black and white stripes. I also gathered American Crafts Bootiful Night embellishments and a piece of yellow mylar paper by Bazzill.

Next, I followed the easy instructions for creating four of the smallest pillow boxes.

I added a special touch by using the new circle Clear-Cut Punch to create a “moon” on the front of the black glitter pillow boxes. It was so easy to line up the punch exactly where I wanted it.

Template Studio Halloween Pillow Boxes Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers

I cut a square of the mylar paper and hot glued it to the back of the punched out circle. Then I assembled and glued the rest of the pillow box.

To embellish this All Hallows Eve box, I hot glued Bootiful Night die-cuts around my punched moon and secured flair to the front with a little bit of whispy, silver thread. Star stickers finish off the spooky scene.

This Happy Halloween box is embellished with a Bootiful Night cobweb, more flair and thread, and die-cuts.

Here I created a scene by adhering a haunted house beneath the mylar moon. Some stickers and flair finished it up.

Trick or Treat says the skull, embellished by stickers and more flair.
