Ribbon Topped Halloween Treat Boxes
I’m always looking for a little something “extra special” to give during a holiday, and May Arts Ribbons are the perfect tool to jazz an ordinary gift into something special. I made these cute triangle-shaped treat holders with some cardstock, dies and May Arts Ribbons.
I started by die-cutting two pieces of cardstock each, die cutting a cute face into each, and adhering them together at the base to form the triangle holder. I topped the ghost with a two 10” lengths of 1” sheer ribbon in silver and solid white wrinkle ribbon tied into a bow. I added 4” piece of twirled white waxed cord to this little gal too, just because I thought it was so cute!
Upon receiving the triangle treat holder, the recipient just has to untie the bows to see the treats enclosed!
I topped the jack-o-lantern with a 2” piece of heavy 1/8” burlap cord in natural for the stem, adhering it to one of the side panels with some washi tape. I added “leaves” with a bow made of solid moss wrinkle ribbon (two lengths of 10”) and finished with a vine twirled from a 4” piece of olive green waxed cord. I especially love how this trim holds the coiled shape!
I hope you enjoyed seeing these cute little treat holders and are inspired to make your own. The Ribbon Resource has many of these ribbons as well, offered in smaller yardage.
