Easy DIY Holiday Treat Boxes

Hi, everyone, I’m happy to be here again.  I’m Tisa Jackson, and I blog about life, stationery and DIY at Just My Little Mess. I love to create DIY projects. I love anything and everything paper and to also find ways to make someone’s day brighter. When I’m not making a huge mess crafting, I love to hang out in cute local shops, travel and long runs with friends.

I think most of us get so overwhelmed with the holidays, holiday lists, parties, and shopping; and I’m always looking for inexpensive gifts to hand out to my kid’s teachers and friends.  I created these boxes with time management in mind.  Plus they are super cute, how could you not make these.

You could easily make up 10 or 20 and people would love them.  These boxes could be given at classroom parties, teachers, school administrators and more.  If you wanted to give a bit more, you could easily tie a gift card to the box.

I’m so excited  to share this project with you. It’s really simple.  I used crafting supplies I had here in my studio.

Let’s get started:


– clear boxes, these can be purchased at Michael’s and also online

– holiday cut outs, ours have been cut using Cricut Designer Space

– Adhesive

– candy of your choice


  1. Simply use holiday cut outs and apply to clear box
  2. Pour candy into box
  3. Add embellishments

Of course you could use anything to dress up your boxes, if you are interested in the cut outs we used from Cricut, they can be found by searching Belt and the Reindeer can be found by searching ugly sweater project.  Simple reduce size of images to the size needed to fit your boxes.
