TSG Treats for You!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I have a fun post to share with you today!  The Trendsetter’s are celebrating There She Goes birthday by sharing a bunch of cute projects featuring treat packaging! :)


I’m just getting started on Halloween projects so I thought it would be fun to create a little treat bucket full of Halloween candy!  The box design is one I created and then cut out using a Silhouette Cameo (my first project with it!).  I’ll be back later with a link to the cut file for those who would like to make one of these boxes. ;)

*EDITED TO ADD: For all of you who would like the Silhouette file I have uploaded it to Drop Box.  Just click on THIS LINK to download the studio file. Have fun and please leave me a comment if you use the file.  I would LOVE to see your creations!  Oh, just one little request – please only use the file for personal use.


To decorate the box I used On the Vine and the sentiment is from Buckets of Love.  The designer paper is from My Mind’s Eye and I used a bit of black mesh ribbon that I picked up from The Ribbon Carousel store.

You might be wondering why you can’t see the stitching on the back of the panels.  Well, I don’t like when it shows so I cut an extra front and back from Kraft and after decorating the panels and stitching I adhered the second set over the backs to cover the stitching. LOL.

I cut a strip of black cardstock 11” long and 3/4” wide and attached to the box with jumbo eyelets to create a handle.


Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my little treat bag!  Let me know what you think.
