Step 1: Cut Out Candy Corn Shapes Using your cutting machine or scissors, cut out candy corn shapes from the orange, yellow, and white cardstock. If using a cutting machine, you can easily find candy corn templates online.
Step 2: Fold and Assemble the Boxes Fold each candy corn shape in half to create a crease along the center. Apply glue along the edges of the folded shape and adhere the sides together to form a box. Repeat this process for each color.
Step 3: Attach the Candy Corn Layers Apply glue to the bottom of the yellow candy corn shape and attach it to the top of the orange box. Repeat this step with the white candy corn shape, creating the iconic candy corn color pattern.
Step 4: Line the Box with Clear Plastic or Cellophane For a neat finish and to keep the candies secure, cut a piece of clear plastic or cellophane to fit inside the candy corn treat box. This will create a lining that holds the candies without letting them fall out.
Step 5: Fill the Boxes with Candy Fill each candy corn treat box with your favorite Halloween candies. Candy corn, chocolate treats, or even small toys make delightful surprises for these charming boxes.
Step 6: Seal the Boxes with Ribbon or Twine Close the candy corn treat boxes by tying a ribbon or twine around the top. This not only adds a decorative touch but also keeps the candies safely tucked inside.
Step 7: Optional Embellishments* Get creative by adding Halloween-themed stickers or embellishments to the outside of your candy corn treat boxes. This step allows you to personalize each box and make it even more festive.
Step 8: Share the Sweetness* Distribute your Candy Corn Treat Boxes to friends, family, or trick-or-treaters. Watch as their faces light up with delight at the sweet surprise hidden inside these charming and festive containers.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully crafted Candy Corn Treat Boxes that not only showcase your crafting skills but also add a sweet touch to your Halloween celebrations.
