What’s the first thing you think of when you think about Halloween? Candy has to be somewhere on the top of that list! My favorite thing about Halloween is seeing how excited the little ones can get over the occasion. But then again, maybe that is just the sugar rush that they are experiencing 😉 If you want to hand out treats to the kids this year, here are some adorable bat treat boxes that are perfect for Halloween.
Our bat treat boxes include papercut stars on the sides, plus a bat design at the top of the box that acts as a handle. We cut the boxes with our Cricut using text weight Stardream Onyx as our 3D Halloween bats. They would also look great with any text weight metallic paper from Paper-Papers, as their text weight paper is a bit sturdier than regular text weight. If you are using cardstock, make sure that it is a lighter cardstock so that the treat box is easier to fold. Use the SVG file if you have a cutting machine, or download our PDF version if you are handcutting. Rather than papercut stars, the PDF version features orange stars to fit the traditional Halloween color scheme.
After you cut your bat treat boxes, you can use them in so many ways! These are great to pass out to trick-or-treaters, or offer them as party favors at your Halloween celebration. I especially love the idea of teachers using them to hand out treats in their classrooms on Halloween! If you want more Halloween ideas, head over to our Halloween proejcts section.
