Today I am sharing another simple and cute halloween candy packaging idea. This Happy Halloween Candy Box Band DIY is inspired by the quintessential Halloween candy, candy corn. These candy box bands only require a few materials and is a fun way to package little sweet treats.
If you are looking for a simple and cute way to package treats for Halloween, these Boo Treat Bags will come in handy. Add candy, cookies, or even small trinkets inside the glassine bags. You can even make simple wrapped candy cuter by wrapping a strip of washi tape around it.
I designed the Party Clock Invitation Printable as a fun invitation that can be used for any occasion. You can customize the printable with your party details and even set the clock to reflect the party start time. I chose a bright yellow paper circle for the clock but you can use any color or patterned print.
You can download the Party Clock Invitation Printable and find the full instructions over here on Oh Happy Day.
Many of the projects from my book, Pretty Packages: 45 Creative-Gift Wrapping Projects, can be used for party favors. One cute and simple project from the book is the Washi Tape Glassine Bag. With just a few materials you can transform plain glassine bags into party favors or little thank you gifts. Fill them up with candy, confetti, or a small gift.
The color and pattern combinations are endless thanks to the wide variety of washi tape out there. I love the idea of selecting a color palette and mixing up the patterns and solid colored washi tapes so that each bag is unique. Cute Tape is my favorite online resource for washi tape. You can find the exclusive Thank You Washi Tape Glassine Bag tutorial I created for Chronicle Books Blog here. And if you would like your own THANK YOU stickers you can download them below.
I am happy to share that my book, Pretty Packages: 45 Creative Gift-Wrapping Projects, is officially on sale on-line and in stores. Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the book and for sharing in my excitement about Pretty Packages. The support I have received from family, friends, and blog readers has meant the world to me. I really wish I were in the States right now so I could see copies of Pretty Packages in stores in person, but for now I am still pinching myself that the book is out!
As I mentioned before, Pretty Packages is a wonderful resource for people who appreciate good packaging as well as for those who would love to make their gifts more special. With 45 step-by-step gift-wrapping projects as well as basic how-to instructions on deciding how to wrap a gift and various ribbon tying techniques, Pretty Packages provides the reader with multiple ways to create a truly unique gift. And almost all of the techniques in the book can be easily translated in to packaging ideas for parties, weddings, and even business branding.
To celebrate the release of Pretty Packages, I am giving away a signed copy of Pretty Packages and a special packaging kit to three lucky people. Below is a sneak peek of what will be included in the packaging kit, which I created with the packaging aficionado in mind. I want the recipients to be surprised, but there will be many packaging goodies that I picked up here in Korea and on my travels to Japan.
