A new Halloween Surprise for you!

Happy Halloween Surprise box template

Halloween template
Well, I have been wanting to draw up my own template for a cute and easy printable gift box.  I have used and posted others, but I wanted to see if I  could do it.... and I did!!!!  It took me the whole day to get it right, but I finally have a cute template for you.  I have printed off several of these and they are adorable.  I put the directions on the printout, but when I put them together, I thought that if I were to file the edges of the Happy Halloween tag, it would look even cuter.  It certainly did.  I then filed the edge of the sticker and it looked even better too. So I took it even one step further and sanded the box folds, and yes, it looked that much cuter!!!  I think I will now tie a cute bow on the top and find something yummy to fill it up with.  By the way, if you didn't already know, Xpedex sells all different kinds of cellophane and plastic bags from really tiny to pretty large.  I like the looks of the cellophane ones the best, but rather than put your goodies right into the box, and tie it shut with a bow. ( You could leave the box flap open and that would look really cute.)   I would line the box with a baggie... oh yea, even a sandwich baggie would work.  I will take a photo of the finished project in a couple of hours, but for now... here is the templates for side one and side two.  Enjoy!!  Katie G.

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
