Coffee Treat Holders for Halloween


Want to make some cute little treat holders for the grown-ups in your life? Here are a few coffee treat holders I made this year.


This little Witches Brew K-cup holder is just a 2 x 2 inch square box covered in DSP and wrapped in orange, black and white twine. I used paper and stamps from Stampin' Up, added some black crinkle paper, and a K-cup! (To make a 2 x 2 inch box, cut a piece of cardstock to 6 x 6 inches and score at 2 inches on all 4 sides, cut on score lines and assemble.)


This treat holder is a small milk carton made with directions from Pootles.co.uk (click here). I made the carton using orange cardstock and covered it with panels of  Halloween Night DSP from Stampin Up (2016). I mixed a couple stamp sets to get the stamped "Everything pumpkin", die cut it out using a stitched oval shape, then hand cut and added a little pumpkin from the same DSP. I tied some black twine around the carton. This little carton will also hold a K-cup or some small pumpkin candies, tea light candles, etc. The carton is held closed with a gold library clip.


I made this small treat bag using orange and white polka dot paper. You can use a die to create the bag or make your own. (To make your own, start with a piece of paper cut to 7-1/2 x 5-3/4 inches, scoring at 1-3/4" and 5-1/4 inches on the long side, then turning the paper and scoring at 1/2 inch on the side that will be the bottom, which is important if it's directional paper. Fold on score lines, trimming away all but the middle section on the bottom. Adhere the bag together. You can use decorative scissors to cut a small strip from the top of the bag.)

I added a tag cut from a calendar page (see my post dated October 6, 2018 where I turned calendar pages into cards and projects), added some twine, a stamped and cut out image of a coffee cup, a witch's hat, and a greeting from the same Stampin' Up stamp set. I attached the tag to the bag using a heart shaped black paper clip. Inside the treat bag is a packet of mocha latte coffee.


Here is another idea. You may have seen these cute little coffee cup candles at Dollar Tree. I removed the label it came with, traced out a new one in kraft cardstock, and attached it instead. Then I added the greeting, cup and witch's hat. Very little effort for a cute effect!

Halloween doesn't have to just be for kids you know!
