Mini-Mummy Treat Boxes

2 Comments

I have confessed to you all how much I love Halloween and now that I have my Silhouette Cameo I love making things for this holiday.

OK, let’s be honest, I love making things for any holiday.

I had started to make these little bags for Ian’s preschool class, but scrapped them and went a different direction.  The bags just weren’t the right size for the kids (but it was perfect for his teachers).

Instead I used a mini nugget holder from SVG Cutting files.

But, I didn’t want there to be just plain rectangle opening, so I altered it into a spiderweb.

On the card side I used the Mummy from this Halloween set, also from SVG Cutting files.  If you remember, I used the Werewolf from the same set for a Halloween themed birthday card.

I had designed it to say “Happy Halloween, from Ian” on the front with the mummy, but the end product was just too small, so I had him write his name on the back.

I had never cut a mini nugget holder before and didn’t really pay attention to the actual size of it.  I just figured I could put a couple of pieces of Halloween candy in there.  It was way smaller than I thought it would be.

and that mummy with the tiny wrappings was a b!*ch to put together and ink! I’m lucky I only had to make 10…

The candy I had didn’t fit, so I took one to the store with me (and no they didn’t have any Halloween Hershey Nugget candy) and figured I could put two of the mini-milky-way/snickers candy bars in there.

Next time I will make an actual prototype first, just to see if everything fits.

I still think they turned out super cute!  Seriously, that mummy is just so stinkin’ cute!

 

 

Now don’t think I stopped there! I was in charge of the snacks for one of Ian’s soccer games sooo….

Come on! It was almost Halloween, what was I supposed to do?

This is the same pumpkin that I used in my Candy Corn Dish that I got from SVG Cuts.

I wasn’t the only snack I got them, and the kids were thrilled.
