Halloween Nerd?

Are you Nerdy?  Well this Halloween project is.  It's a Halloween treat box that holds not one, but two little boxes of nerds. Wouldn't these make the perfect treat for your child's halloween party?

I made these nerd boxes last Valentines and posted the instructions and they were so popular that I thought I should post them again:
  • Cut card stock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". (You will be able to make 4 boxes from one 8.5 x 11" piece of card stock)
  • Score the long way 3/4" in on both sides then score the short way at 3/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/4" and 5".
  • Using the template for reference, cut in from the edge to the first score where indicated. Cut and remove the areas that are shaded in gray.
  • Cut and attach designer paper.
    • TOP: 1 5/8" x 2 5/8"
    • SIDES: (2) 5/8" x 1 5/8 and (2) 5/8" x 2 5/8"
  • Fold and glue decorated card stock to create box.
  • Fill with 2 boxes of Nerds and embellish as desired.
  • Card Stock:  Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
  • Designer Paper:  Pumpkin Pie from the Brights Collection Paper Pack
  • Punch:  Bitty Bat
  • Stamp Set:  Grateful Greetings
  • Ink:  Basic Black Classic Ink Pad


  1. Thanks for the template for the box! I'm going to use some card stock and make some of these for any occasion.

  2. Super cute project. I have to do a Halloween Candy swap and this would be perfect! Thanks for sharing!
