How To Make a Haunted House Treat Box
- Print the treat box template on white cardstock and cut it out.
- Fold the box along the 2 horizontal and 3 vertical lines shown in the picture below. Also, fold the white flaps.
- Fold along the lines on the roof. You can use a ruler to keep your lines straight.
- Apply glue to the white tabs on the right.
- Fold your cardstock and glue the side tab to make a box. Alternatively, you could use double-sided tape to stick the box together.
- It’s time to fold the bottom of your box. And guess what? You won’t need any glue to keep it together!
Start by folding in flap 1. Then, fold flaps 2 and 3 to the middle. Finally, fold flap 4 and insert it inside flap 1.
- To close the top of your box, push the sides of the roof (folded on step 3) until the two flaps with the chimney touch.
- To finish, fill your box with treats and close it using tape. You can also make a hole in the flaps and tie some ribbon through, or use mini pegs.
