Hello Crafty Friends! I’m so excited to share my newest treat box – Halloween Monster Treat Boxes! This cute treat box is spooky, silly, colorful and definitely fun. The printable box is available in two sizes perfect for holding sweet treats and small gifts. The boxes are easy to assemble with the printables and make an adorable gift box or a fun decoration for your home or office space.

A few weeks ago I was updating a post for my Haunted House treat box. I had made it years ago and it needed a little refresh. I went to buy orange Candy Kisses, like I had used in the original pictures, but was surprised to find they didn’t have any that were orange.

The stores did have these colorful and fun monster-themed candy kisses with eyeballs and teeth on them. I thought it would be so cute to make a haunted house box that matched them. This is not a sponsored post, I just really thought the candy kisses were cute and made a box to go with them :)

In my Haunted House treat box tutorial I show how to cut out the windows to make a fun peekaboo to the treats inside and how to make a roof out of glitter scallop-edged paper. You could do these same things to these boxes if you want, but these boxes are also ready to go as is!

They come together really quickly and only use a few supplies. Once they are printed on cardstock, the basic supplies you need are a scissors, double-sided tape and string. I recommend using a scoring board for scoring the fold lines but this is optional. The scoring board just makes this step go quickly while also creating nice crisp fold lines for your box.

These Halloween monster treat boxes are so cute and fun for the holiday! I prefer cute Halloween to scary Halloween so these are perfect for us. I hope you have fun crafting them if you give this project a try. Below is the tutorial and you’ll find a link to my Resource Library so you can grab a copy of the box files.

Supplies Needed

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Print the Halloween Monster Treat Box on white cardstock. There are two sizes to choose from. I like to print on 110lb paper since it’s super sturdy for treat boxes. This weight works well with my Epson printer but may not work in all printers so be sure to check what paper weight your printer can handle! Once it is printed, cut it out using a paper trimmer and/or scissors.

Step Two: Fold the monster box along the fold lines. You can do this by hand, or if you have a scoring board and stylus, you can use that to score the fold lines prior to folding. A scoring board is so helpful with paper crafts, it’s one of my favorite tools for paper crafting.

Step Three: Assemble the box! Time to attach the sides of the box. The small box only needs to be attached on one side, while the larger box will need to be attached on two sides. Use double-sided tape or glue on the tabs. I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape which is super strong making it great for these treat boxes. It is not repositionable though, so you really have to get it right the first time.

Step Four: Hole punch the roof. Hole punch the roof pieces at the top about 1/2″ in from the sides. Punch the holes out of one roof and use that as a guide to punch the holes in the other roof.

Step Five: Fill the box with sweets and treats and close the box. Fill the box with candy, treats or gifts. I used the small boxes and filled them with monster-themed Candy Kisses. You can tie the boxes closed using Baker’s Twine, ribbon or yarn.
