Good morning SCT friends! It’s true that we’re getting down to the wire and Halloween is only one howl away…but it’s not too late to whip up a few super special treat gifts for your favorite little spooks!


Grab your favorite Halloween themed papers (I am loving this collection called “Howl” by Fancy Pants Designs) and a few fun Silhouette cut files and you can have a whole set of treat packaging ready to fill with sweet treats in a matter of minutes!


These mason jar-shaped boxes (Design ID#57960) are just the right size for filling with cookies or bags of treats, and aren’t they perfect with these papers and the cutest little costumed characters on the front?


I love the original size of these treat boxes, but they could easily be adjusted larger or smaller to fit different treats!


I also used plenty of foam adhesive for dimension behind the printed die-cut shapes!


You could use any type of box (I used Design ID#6979), but make it extra fun with a little peek-a-boo window in the top for a sneak peek at the treats inside!


Finally, it’s just not Halloween without a little bit of creepiness, although I tend to make even the creepy things, like coffins, CUTE by adding not-so-scary elements like these cute little ghosts with their candy gifts on top!


The coffins (Design ID#277448) can also be adjusted larger or smaller depending on the treats you want to tuck inside.

The bottom line is, don’t be scared – it doesn’t take a magic spell to create these last-minute Halloween gifts! Put on a scary movie, grab the “Howl” collection by Fancy Pants Designs, turn on the Silhouette, and you’ll have a basketful of Halloween treats ready to go before you know it! Happy Halloween!
