Instructions:

  • Cardstock door hanger
  • Ruler
  • Stamp
  • Ink
  • Pencil
  • Cellophane
  • Double Stick Tape
  • Brads, optional
  • Ribbons, optional

Materials:

  1. These little treat boxes are made from cardstock doorknob hangers. I had some that were already punched out purchased years ago from Stampin’ Up but I don’t think they carry them anymore. Here’s a website that has free printable templates for them: doorknob hangers Print them onto cardstock and cut them out yourself and it will still do the trick!

  2. I’m sure you can think of many ways to decorate these but I simply rubber stamped all over the front of the doorknob hanger. Remove the circle section from it (the place that forms the opening for the doorknob) – this becomes the tag for the little box and the opening forms a window through which you can see the treats. I left the circle there while stamping so that one side of the tag would be stamped as well. Originally, I made these as cookie holders – they will hold one typical sized cookie – but with Halloween here, I thought they would make adorable packages to hold holiday items such as candy corn.
     
  3. On the back of the doorknob hanger, you will need to measure and determine where your fold lines are going to be. The main part of the doorknob hangers I’m using here are 7 inches long. I find that a section about an inch wide in the middle works very well for this – you need a section that’s wide enough to support the box so that it will stand on its own. On each of the lines that you’ve marked, score with a bone folder so that you can make a good crease in them.

  4. I like to "line" the inner back section of the treat box (the part that will be right behind the treat) just in case there are any areas that are exposed once the treat is put in. Place the treat into a small clear bag. The ones I used are cellophane and can be purchased at most party stores or where they sell cake decorating and candy making supplies. I used a little bit of double sided tape on the back of the clear bag to hold the treat in place within the box (so that it shows through the window). As you can see, I also covered the non-stamped side of the tag with some scrapbooking paper.

  5. I punch small holes in the top two corners of the treat box. You can then use brads or run ribbon through the holes to hold the box closed. You can also attach the tag to the box in the same way. If you punch a hole in the top, you can add a little bow or even a ribbon hanger so that this treat will hang on a holiday tree. These boxes are also great as place cards at a dinner party because you can write the person’s name on the tag and then when dinner is over, they can take the treat home as a little gift.
