Coffin Party Favors

For an appropriately creepy take-home treat, fill coffin-style favor boxes with candy bones. Give the boxes a casket look by weathering the edges with chalk and adding press-on letters.

What You Need

  • Tracing paper
  • Die-cut machine and box die cut (optional) (We used AccuCut Box #18.)
  • Dark gray card stock
  • Rub-on alphabet 
  • Double-sided tape
  • Crafts glue
  • 7-millimeter-diameter round red rhinestone
  • White chalk
  • 2/3 yard of 1/2-inch-wide red ribbon

How to Make It

  1. Enlarge the box shape (click on the link above to download the pattern) to fit the card stock.
  2. Trace the shape on tracing paper; cut out.
  3. Trace the pattern on card stock and cut out the shape.
  4. If you're using a die cut, cut the shape with a die-cut machine.
  5. Cut out the letters "R," "I," and "P" from the rub-on alphabet.
  6. Rub the letters on one side of the shape.
  7. Fold the shape into a box, using double-sided tape to secure it at the side and bottom.
  8. Glue a red rhinestone atop the dot on the "I." Rub all edges of the box with white chalk.
  9. Fill the box with Halloween candy and tie it closed with ribbon.
