I love candy corn…and Smarties!  Halloween seems like the only time I indulge…

I’m made 20 of these treat carriers for work friends.  Hope they enjoy them!

This is a version of a project originally found on SplitCoastStampers.  I modified the envelope punch board numbers so that it was easier to scale the project up.  Here are the details for various sizes.

Here is a video about how to make the tote.

Here is a sample of completed totes…

  1. I love these boxes so much! I’ll have to make some for my kiddos. Thanks for the video! It was very helpful.

  2. Love to come here and see the little dog. He’s so cute.
    These totes are wonderful.
    thanks for the directions.

  3. Your second cut is not at 1 1/4 and 4, but I am unable to see what measurement those are. Can you tell me? Thanks

  4. Never mind. I rewatched the first box and you said to line up the second side with the score line. Sorry I didn’t catch it the first time.
