Are you ready for Halloween yet? I know we are getting more and more excited everyday. My kids can barely contain themselves. And when we do fun crafts like these free printable coffin treat boxes, they are even more ready for the big day!
If you need a fun way to gift some treats this Halloween, you need these little coffin treat boxes. They are actually bigger than they look (or so the hubby says). They measure 6″ tall by 3″ wide (at the widest point) and are 1 1/4″ deep. You can fill them up with all your favorite Halloween treats. Popcorn is always a favorite treat in our house so we mixed it with some spooky candy for a fun Halloween snack.
My son was so excited to play with the coffins, I am sure I will find all kinds of action figures and little dolls in them in the weeks to come. He wanted me to make one for him that said “RIP” because he just learned what that meant from seeing it on all the tombstone decorations around. So I did make a second design for him. Yeah, I’m a sucker for that little man!
To make these boxes, you will want to print them on cardstock. Then cut along the solid dark gray lines. I like to score the dotted gray lines before folding them, it makes a cleaner fold. If you don’t have a fancy paper scorer (I don’t), you can use my trick. I use a ruler and the tip of a metal nail file to score my paper crafts. And if I break a nail, I can easily fix it then move on. Fold along all the dotted lines, then secure the tabs with some glue. I used a small dot of hot glue on each tab and it dried quickly so I could move on to the next tab fast. The lid should sit tightly over the base of the coffin.
Now you can fill your Free Printable Halloween Coffin Treat Boxes with your favorite Halloween treats. Our family is partial to popcorn and we can’t get enough of this 10 minute Soft & Chewy Caramel Popcorn. Add your favorite Halloween candies and you will have the perfect treat!
