Mini treat boxes for Halloween

These little treat boxes are made from match boxes and scrapbook paper.  These are really fun and easy to make.


  • mini matchboxes
  • scrapbook paper
  • brads (for drawer handle)

Step 1.

Cut a piece of paper that will fit around box and overlap just a little.


Step 2.

Coat the outside of the matchbox with glue. Wrap the paper around the matchbox as shown. Let dry.


Step 3.

Paint the “drawer” black and let it dry. Poke a hole in the end of the box using a push pin and push the brad through the hole. Spread the prongs to anchor the brad in place.

Step 4.

Glue something fun on the top and then fill it with candy.


About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
