Stenciled Treat Boxes

One party favor -- dozens of ways to decorate it! These treat boxes can be customized to the color theme of your party, or differently suited to each individual guest.

steps

  1. Following package instructions, cut a pillow box from cardstock using the pillow gift box tool.
  2. Start by designing the section connected to the long edge tab: Choose an adhesive stencil and apply to one edge or corner of that section. (Extend your design to the short tabs as well.)
  3. Using a dauber brush, dab a small amount of paint onto the stencil design. Readjust your stencil to continue your design. (Tip: Use a paper towel to dab excess paint before each application.)
  4. Remove stencil and let dry completely. Assemble the pillow box with double-stick tape. Fill with candy and treats of your choosing.
