Halloween Treat Box

We were grocery shopping the other day when my husband picked up a big box of cupcakes. This was the same weekend that I broke out all the Halloween decorations for outside.  I find that if we don’t keep snacks like cookies and cakes out on the counter, they will  be forgotten in the cabinet and will eventually have to be thrown out. I was deciding which bowl or jar to the put the cupcakes in  I got inspired to create this cute little treat box. 
To make your own treat box, just take any box or other container you find around the house.  Then get a couple of coordinating scrapbook papers. ( I purchased the packet which included 8 sheets of Halloween paper from the Dollar Tree! I actually bought it a year or two ago and had totally forgotten about it.  Big surprise when I started hunting through my paper drawers!)
Next cut your paper to fit your box.  Since I’m not the craftiest person in the world I find it helps a lot to trace the shapes you need with a pen or pencil.  For this particular project I found it easier to cut each side individually but whenever possible, I try to wrap the paper around the item I’m decoupaging.
Finally apply mod podge to the back of your paper and stick the paper to your container.  Make sure it goes on smooth.  If you’re using a cardboard box like I did, you could alternatively use a glue stick.  After you’ve completely covered your container, you can finish all the project by giving it another light coat of mod podge.
After it dries, your ready to fill the box with your favorite Halloween treats!

I’m sharing my project at these crafty linky parties.
