Hanging Treat Box
by Christina Fischer
Create one of these and slip over a bottle neck or use as a door hanger.
- 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock
- Paper cutter with scoring blade
- Corner rounder
- 1 3/8" Circle Punch
- Sticky Strip™
- Additional cardstock
Turn 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock sideways and score at 4" and 4 1/2".
Turn the cardstock lengthwise and score at 1/2", 1", 4 1/2", and 5".
Here, the score lines were traced with a marker for visibility. No need to do this at home!
Cut away sections of cardstock as shown in the photo.
Cut a slit on both sides as shown so the squares become small tabs.
Prefold all score lines. It should look like this.
Round the corners of the long back panel.
Punch a circle so the pouch can be slipped over a bottle. Here a 1 3/8" circle punch was used.
Fold to create box and attach tabs to back with Sticky Strip™ or other strong adhesive.
Decorate with stamps, cardstock, paper and embellishments of your choice!
Hang on a bottle and give it away!
Cut the front and back panels shorter. Fill with "drinks on the go" packets and hang on a water bottle.
Make the hole larger and hang over a door knob to surprise a neighbor. Perfect for those Halloween "boo" treats!
Fill with cocoa, gum, a candy bar, or other treats!
