Materials needed to create your own Christmas Light Treat Boxes
Cricut Maker or Explore
Fine point blade
Single scoring wheel
Light Grip Mat
Red and green cardstock
Hot glue gun
I used my Cricut Explore to cut these light boxes out. The scoring pen worked great to create the scored lines used to assemble the treat box and made it a breeze. Now that the scoring wheel is available for the Maker, I would recommend using it to score the line for these boxes. I used image #M4284D from the Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 cartridge.
Once the image is cut, remove from the mat. Now you will want to fold along the scored lines.
Glue the bottom part of the light together first.
This creates a cone. Before you finish gluing together, fill with the Christmas candy of your choosing. I used Holiday M&Ms because they are my favorite.
Then glue the upper part of the light box together. Be careful not to drip and glue on your candy.
Once it is glued shut, wrap the top of the “light” with silver washi tape to give it an authentic look.
That’s it! Super easy and super cute! Repeat this process for as many lights you want.
Fits easily in stockings or can be tied and used as a gift tag! I strung several together and they look stinkin’ adorable!
I love how they turned out!
How would you use these treat boxes? I guess you could put other small items in there too like Shopkins or Lego figurines!
