And now for a fun way to give those “special people” in your life a Halloween treat. We’ve designed a Halloween package that will hide the treat…….which is a Snicker’s bar. If you’ve got some trick or treaters that are special to you then don’t just give them the candy you’re handing out on Halloween night. Make this easy but fun Halloween/Snickers box. We supply you with the instructions, the “Happy Halloween” tags, the “Thanks for coming” tags and the moon and bats photo. You use your favorite Halloween paper to make these. You’ll recognize the bat that we used to wrap our Halloween book marks and also the bat garland. It’s one that you can use for so many things, well worth the money.

We used double sided scrapbook paper for this project. One side will be the box and the other side will be the tall back piece. We used black grosgrain ribbon measuring 3/4″ It looks nice and holds the candy bar inside the box. The Happy Halloween tag is the one that has blank space on the left side so you can hide the end under the moon. Be sure to use foam tabs to attach the moon, bat and tag.
We’ve added the “Thanks for coming” tag with a black backing on the front of this one so you can use it as a party favor. One side of this paper is Halloween sheet music and the other side is a black and orange.
We’ve added a medallion to this one and a cute Halloween button. You’ll need a scoring board to make the medallion or you could fold it yourself. We didn’t add a ribbon here because we wanted the pumpkin faces to show. Just put a glue dot on the ends of the candy bar to keep it inside the box. We used the larger “Happy Halloween” tag for this package.
Use double sided scrapbook paper for this project. It just makes it so cute with two different designs/papers showing. But you could use a solid piece of scrapbook paper if you like.
I love this pumpkin paper. We found it at JoAnn’s. We cut out and glued the pumpkin paper to the back of this box. That’s something you can do if you don’t like one side of a paper you’re using. We used the “Happy Halloween” tag that is clipped in at both ends for this one and added the “thanks for coming” tag without a paper behind it. We used 3/4″ grosgrain ribbon here.
Cut your favorite Halloween paper 4 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ and score at the 3/4″, 2″, 2 3/4″ and 4″ marks on the scoring board.
Fold the scored lines to create the box as shown above. For this design you will now glue the box together.
We used a 2 1/4″ circle punch for the moon. You could use a 2 1/2″ circle too. Cut out the “Happy Halloween” tag that has a blank space on the left and finally a black bat is punched out. If you’re wondering why we didn’t capitalize happy or Halloween….the font we wanted to use is all lower case letters.
You know I like to ink and that’s what we’ve done here on the moon and the tag. We also scored some lines in the bat so it would have some dimension but you can leave it flat.
I love using the foam tabs. It looks so much better than just gluing directly to the paper. If you want more dimension you could stack two foam tabs on top of each other. Foam tabs are a must!
We’re almost done now. You can fit a regular Snickers bar or an almond Snickers bar into the box. A package of M&M’s fit but it did stick out on the ends a bit.
We used 3/4″ black grosgrain ribbon here. Just tie a knot instead of a bow. Now you’re done. Wasn’t that easy. This also makes a fun Halloween gift for teacher and it is inexpensive but special.
To make the Snickers box using the photo of the moon and bats you score and fold the box exactly as shown above but before you glue the box together be sure to glue the photo to the back piece.
After you’ve got the photo in place then you can glue the box together. You can either add a ribbon or leave it off depending on how you want it to look. If you don’t use a ribbon be sure to put a glue dot on either end of the candy bar to hold it in place.
We used a 1/4″ ribbon on this one and added the “Thanks for coming” tag. So basically, this cute treat box will work for Halloween party favors, for trick or treaters, for “You’ve been booed” package and for Teacher Appreciation or even school party favors. You can get a 24 count box of Snickers for $48.00. That makes them just 50 cents each. I’ve seen them on sale at the grocery store for only 59 cents too.
