Pumkin Treat Box

OK, so I have to eat my words now because here is a Halloween project from me, only two posts ago I was saying I don't do Halloween! Anyway, it was the cue at this week's challenge for CASology that prompted my about face

I did say that I've never made a Halloween card and that hasn't changed because I've made a gift box, just right for a little treat for Halloween visitors. Not fussy, just CAS.

It was very simply made from a sheet of 12"x12" orange DP from K&Co, cut into 5/8" strips. I punched a hole in the centre of each one and threaded them onto a brad. then you fan out the strips, make another hole in each end and thread them onto another brad, strip by strip.  This gives you your pumpkin.  I've die cut some leaves and made the curly tendrils by cutting very thin strips of card. To put the treats inside you simply slide the strips over and then back again. I am also entering this week's challenge at QKR Stampede  for Halloween Fun -it was a lot of fun to make, and at Stampin' Royalty for the challenge Halloween Goodie Packaging. I must say I am rather pleased with the result, I might be making a few more of these!


  1. How fun is this! I can imagine the surprise of someone when they find their treat inside. Love the tendrils on top - the perfect finishing touch!

  2. So simple but so cool! I love it! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  3. Brilliant! I like the papers you've used. Such good work!

  4. Well, I do believe I will need to try this! FUN! What a great and simple way to jazz up a Halloween treat! Thanks for joining us at CASology!
