Candy Treat Bucket Tutorial

Hey there!  I am up on the Trinity Blog today with a these cute Candy bucket Treat Holders.  You can check it out there, but her are a few extra details on how I made them.


1. I cut a strip of paper that was 6.5 X 2.5. 

2. Then, I scored the long side from the left at the following spots:

  • 2 1/8 inches
  • 3 1/8 inches (one inch from the last score line) 
  • 5 1/4 inches (2 1/8 from the last score line)
  • 6 1/4 inches (one inch from the last score line OR 1/4 inch from right edge)
3. I turned the paper so it was tall and scored from the top to bottom at 1 inch in (1.5 inches from the other edge).

4. I folded all my edges in the same direction.  I cut slits along the bottom edge of the long side and cut the flap off the tiny corner that is 1/4 by 1 inch.  Here is a visual to help:

The tape for this has to be very strong, I recommend the red tape that is good for 3-D projects or other high tack double sided adhesive tape.  

5. Now I put my box together and it looks like this:



There is still tape on the two large sides which I will later adhere to my pumpkins.

7.  Next I use a small hole punch and punch two holes on each side of the box.  I will use these to add my heavy twine to hold the box. 



8.  Next I cut out my pumpkin layers. I can use cardstock or Designer Paper- though if I used DP I put a layer of CS behind it to make it a little more sturdy.

9. I cut the faces out using glitter paper.  I can reposition the face parts (turning them) to make different faces.

10. Once I have the pumpkin sides done, I adhere them to the box sides being very careful to  have good alignment and so the pumpkin will stand on its own using the two outer sides.



There you have it, super fun! You can see more finished pics over on the Trinity Blog.  Thanks for visiting!
