These fun square favor boxes – made using the Martha Stewart Scoring Board – are perfect for tucking in yummy Halloween treats!

Hallowen party favor ideas

Here are a few of my classic 1, 2, 3… steps for making these spooktacular little boxes using our Halloween Witches 12×12 Paper (or try the text weight wrapping paper if you have lots of favors to make).

Score board measuring guides

Step 1: Trim your top and bottom papers to 8″ x 8″. To make these 4″ x 4″ x 2″ square boxes we used the witch 12″ x 12″ and black 8.5″ x 11″ cover papers. You can make different sized mini boxes – simply flip the little lid up on the scoring board for easy to follow measuring guides (see above).

Step 2: For the base of the box, score at the 2″ and 6″ marks. Rotate and repeat.

Step 3: Cut the corners to create four flaps for taping/gluing.

Step 4: Using a glue stick or tape runner, apply adhesive on “reverse side” of flaps on both corners. Fold flaps inward as shown above in step 3 – raise the side wall and rub to secure. Repeat for the opposite corner.

Step 5: For the lid to the box, score at 2″ and 6 1/8″. Repeat steps 1–4. Finish with a Halloween rubber stamp in black ink on a round tag and tie with bookbinding thread!

Ooohhh, it’s so ghoulishly good!

    If I’m not mistaken, it looks like Martha Steward’ scoring board.

    Hi – I tried this and the lid is off a bit and does not fit nicely over the bottom. There is a gap on two sides of the box that are off by 1/8th. Is this how it is supposed to look? Or am I off on the directions?

  9. Lisa says:

    @ Susan – I just bought my MS scoreboard tonight. Check the directions that come with it – for the lid there is a special placement to “align paper at the 1/16 mark. I’m guessing this would fix your problem.

    This is a fun project. I’m planning to use the idea to make boxes for all kinds of occasions!
