Martha Stewart Coffin Treat Boxes CUTE!

I love this craft from Martha Stewart for unique coffin treat boxes.

Surprise your guests with an inventive coffin treat box, a wonderfully ghoulish party favor everyone will want to take home.

Tools and Materials:
  • Decorative paper
  • Black cardstock
  • Large glue stick
  • Printer
  • Plain printer paper
  • Stapler
  • Bone folder
  • Ruler
  • Craft knife or scissors
  • Paperclips
  • Candy
  • Halloween stickers
  • Rough twine
  • Coffin box top and bottom templates
  • Full-sheet double-sided adhesive (optional)
Coffin Treat Box How-To:
  1. Fully adhere decorative paper to black cardstock with a large glue stick or full-sheet double-sided adhesive.
  2. Print top and bottom coffin templates on regular 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper. Place one template on each sheet of lined cardstock and staple around the template to hold in place. Do not staple inside the lines of the template, as this will create holes in your finished box.
  3. Using a bone folder and ruler, score on the dotted lines of each template, pressing through to the paper and cardstock underneath.
  4. Using a craft knife or scissors, cut on solid lines of templates, working from the inside out.
  5. Fold sides and tabs of both top and bottom where scored. Using a glue stick, glue tabs to inside of box bottom and lid as shown in the template. Clamp with paperclips to secure until dry.
  6. Fill bottom of box with candy. Add stickers to top of lid and place lid on top of box. Wrap a 1-yard piece of rough twine around the coffin a few times, and tie to secure.

The decorative paper used on today's show is available as part of a kit on QVC.com. Twine is available at hardware or craft stores. All other materials, including a variety of alternative decorative paper, and tools are from Martha Stewart Crafts.

More Great Halloween Favor Ideas from Martha Stewart

I'm hosting a bake sale to raise funds for my daughter's elementary school PTO.  I've been looking for unique ideas to package the items to ensure a lot of funds earned.  In today's mail update from MarthaStewart.com, was a link to some fantastic treat boxes and favors. 

I always am partial to the holiday crackers and love the one's in the middle.  The cat treat boxes look a little more time consuming than what I want so I might stick with the other two options.  See how easy it looks:

Tools and Materials

  • Crepe and colored papers
  • Scissors
  • Stickers or rubber stamps
  • Toilet-paper rolls
  • Glue stick
  • Twine
  • Plastic spider or bat rings
Halloween Crackers How-To

These Halloween treat holders are modeled after British Christmas crackers.

1. Cut an 11-inch square of crepe paper and a 4-by-7-inch piece of paper in another color; decorate with stickers or stamps.

2. Roll crepe paper around a candy-filled toilet-paper roll; glue seams closed. Wrap paper rectangle around center; glue.

3. Tie ends with twine; snip for fringe. Slip rings over twine. Pull ends to break open.
