Candy Corn Treat Box Tutorial~ As Seen on Ribbon's and Button's Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by my blog yesterday and left me such sweet messages regarding all 4 of my projects. I loved being a part of this hop and sharing Julie's Crinkle Ribbon and helping her promote her new venture 3 Girl Jam.
To see my original post with this project click here.
There is a giveaway on my blog that you will want to enter....the chance to win any 2 bundles of ribbon!

I got tons of emails and messages regarding my candy corn treat containers so I thought I would share a picture tutorial on how to make these very simple treats!

Tools needed:
Orange, White and Yellow Cardstock
ATG Gun or sticky adhesive

( Picture Heavy so please bear with me)
Cut your orange cardstock to 8 1/2 x 3 1/2

score in the middle of the long side at 4 1/4

cut 2 pieces of yellow and white cardstock~ both at 3 1/2 x 1 3/8

you want to add a small mark at 1 3/4 on both the top and the bottom so you have a marker to score diagonally to each outer side. You are making a triangle with the point on top at both ends

attach your yellow cardstock pieces right slightly from the center score line on each half.
you want the white cardsotck at the top of both halves (as seen in the picture)

Using the score lines you already made on the orange cardstock...refold those lines adding the score lines to the additional yellow and white cardstock.
You also want to punch holes....centered between the edge and the triangle point.
To make this easier..fold the cardstock in half and punch both sides at once

You are ready to add your ribbon! 3 Girl Jam ribbon works awesome!!
I measured an 8 inch could go more if you want more ribbon hanging
These are going to 3rd graders who I know just want the treats inside :)

Then tie away...that's it easy easy easy!

All that is left to do is embellish the outside
I used My Creative Time circle die and All Around Halloween Stamp
Then just added a candy corn sticker from Martha Stewart to the center

Pretty easy when you see it laid out like this. I have been making them while watching TV at nights.Makes the time go fast and before you know it they are all done!
If you have any other questions just leave me a comment or email me at

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you give this a try.
Let me know if you do...I would love to see how you embellish it!

  8. Hey Jessica -
    Such a great tutorial and it doesn't seem that difficult too.... TFS!

  9. Made one of the Candy Corn boxes following your wonderful tutorial. I need to get the yellow piece of cardstock lined up closer to the fold edge for better look. Need to remember to have adhesive or glue in corners of the white & yellow pieces so not loose at corners. Hardest part for me was punching the holes so they were in right spot on each side and discovered that for me it was easier to punch a hole on each side of top and then fold box together to get the punched hole at bottom in correct spot. It's so cute. Thanks!
