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 or die
  • Adhesive (Sticky Strip™ used here)
  • Additional cardstock
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Embellishments


  1. Step 1

    Turn 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock sideways and score at 4" and 4 1/2".

  2. Step 2

    Turn the cardstock lengthwise and score at 1/2", 1", 4 1/2", and 5".

  3. Here, the score lines were traced with a marker for visibility. No need to do this at home!

  4. Step 3

    Cut away sections of cardstock as shown in the photo.

  5. Step 4

    Cut a slit on both sides as shown so the squares become small tabs.

  6. Step 5

    Prefold all score lines. It should look like this.

  7. Step 6

    Round the corners of the long back panel.

  8. Step 7

    Punch a circle so the pouch can be slipped over a bottle. Here a 1 3/8" circle punch was used.

  9. Step 8

    Fold to create box and attach tabs to back with Sticky Strip™ or other strong adhesive.

  10. Step 9

    Decorate with stamps, cardstock, paper and embellishments of your choice!

    The front panel is 3 1/2" wide by 4" high.

  11. Step 10

    Hang on a bottle and give it away!



  1. 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!

  2. Layer a longer panel in the back if you want to hang the box on a taller bottle or accommodate taller items.

    For this variation, cut the box base at a 5 1/4" width (5 1/4" x 11"). The remaining 3 1/4" x 11" strip can be used as is or trimmed to desired length and glued into the back of the box. See video for further instructions.

What a great tutorial! I'm off making one now. I love splitcoaststampers for their ideas! I'm finally making a sample asap when I see ideas I like this way they are just not filed away somewhere and forgotten.
Great job Christina! Love the dark score lines easier to see with. Thanks again for sharing. I don't know what I would do if I could not CASE.

My Sister and Brother-In-Law have a wine shop and this would be perfect to make for them to display around the shop.

LOVE this idea!
I bet it'd be perfect for a teenager sleepover- fill the pocket with a snack size microwave popocorn and a candy treat and hang it over a soda! Perfect! Can't wait to try it!

I can't wait to go make one of these. I love the idea with the bag of mini popcorn and soda. This is perfect for office gifts, they can be made to suit the receiver and so affordable! Thanks so much for the idea and great instruction, I'm sure I'll be making several!
