I love to send unique treats to my kids classrooms for Valentines Day, I know all the little girls in my sons grade 2 class will love these Valentine Treat Boxes and even my daughters grade 6 friends will too.

Here are the supplies I used.

12 x 12 sheets of kraft card stock

various rubber stamps

ink pad

fine tip marker

glue dots

embellishments like twine & buttons

I used my silhouette to cut these boxes, here’s the file. I sized it to fit 3 boxes on one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.

Once cut I used my favourite valentine rubber stamps and stamped the boxes.

On this one I added “You’re Just My TYPE” on the typewriter paper with a fine tip marker.

The cut boxes are perforated where you need to fold, it is super easy. Once you fold along the perforations you’ll see exactly how the box fits together.

I used these awesome glue dots that I picked up to close the treat boxes, below you can see where I placed the first glue dot. I just used as many as I needed until the box was put together.

Now the box is ready for treats.

How about sticks of gum, candy hearts or jelly beans?

Here’s the back of one of the boxes. I added a pretty button and twine which is attached with the glue dots.

Embellish as much or as little as you like.

Switch it up and make the boxes using a patterned or floral cardstock.

Sour Cream Containers

I have been making Halloween Sour Cream Containers for the past few years, they are great for giving out to the kids in your child’s classroom or to the kids at the babysitters.

Here are a few I made this year.

I didn’t take pics of the process but here’s a great tutorial(scroll to the bottom of the page, click last page and then move back to page 34, it’s about half way down the page). These are so simple to make, I usually make them when watching a favorite show.

I used a 6″ x 6″ piece of scrapbook paper. 
And I used my fence punch & a circle scallop & circle punch with a witch stamp to decorate the containers.

This is a paper crimper, I use it to crimp the ends of the container for a nice finished look.

Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

 Halloween Treat Bag Toppers

My daughter and I were doing a little crafting over the weekend and we made some Halloween Bag Toppers. I didn’t take pics of the process because it’s pretty straight forward and the size of your bag topper depends on the size of your treat bag.

Here are the supplies that you need:

- Card Stock
- Scrapbook Paper
- Baggies
- Ink
- Stamps
- Double sided tape
- Any embellishments like glitter!
- Liquid glue for glitter
- CANDY!

My baggies were 4″ in width, I purchased them in the craft section of the dollar store.

I knew I wanted my topper to be 2″ in height so I cut my black cardstock down to 4″ x 4″. Score at 2″ and fold into a tent shape.

Then cut your scrapbook paper just slightly smaller than the cardstock and score this also in the centre, when you glue it to your cardstock there is a nice outer border.

The stamp that I had was roughly 2″ x 2″, I cut white cardstock to that size and them stamped my image on. I cut my black cardstock slightly larger as a backing for the white.

Position it on your topper. Fill your baggie with your favorite candy and then glue your topper to the baggie using double sided tape. You could also staple your topper to the baggie for a more secure fit.

Add any embellishments you may like & VOILA!

Super quick, super cute & super fun!
