No Tricks, Just Treats!

Are you in need of a spooky gift idea, this Halloween?

Try this tasty “scare” package!

I created this box for my nephew who is currently serving an lds mission, in Alabama.

What You Need:


Glue stick

Hot Glue Gun

Orange Spray Paint

Purple Scrapbook Paper

Plastic Spider Rings

Bouncy Balls



Mine Included:

Ties, cuff Links and Taco Bell Giftcard

How to Make:

Start by spray painting the inside of your box.

Once your box is painted, cut letters out of scrapbook paper to create your message.

Using my sihlouette machine, I cut out the saying “No Tricks Just Treats” and “Happy Halloween”.

Once the letters are cut, gluing them onto your box using a glue stick.

Place your gifts in the bottom of your box.

Once your gifts are placed inside, dump the candy, plastic spiders, bouncy balls on top.

Mix gently, so that everything is spread evenly.

If you have extra spider rings. Using a hot glue gun, glue several spiders to the flaps of your box. You could also add fake spider webbing for a spookier look.

Happy Halloween!


We recently have a nephew who is serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

We wanted to send him a care package to show him just how much we care!

What You Need:


Scrapbook Paper



Glue stick

Large Box of Cheerios

Variety of Cereals

How to Make:

Start by measuring the flaps of your box. Cut your scrapbook paper to fit your box measurements.

Once your paper is cut out, use a glue stick to glue each page, to each box flap.

When all of your pages have been glued on, you are ready to add the wording.

I used my silhouette to cut out the saying. However, you could just use a pen too!

I then hand sketched a spoon and a bowl onto cardstock. Once they were cut out, I glued them to the flaps, along with the letters for my saying.

I decided to use a hot glue gun to add a few Cheerios to the spoon and bowl to make it look more realistic.

Next step, collect all of your cereals.

I purchased these at my local dollar store!

I loved that they were small bags of cereal, instead of miniature boxes.

So about halfway through this project, I had a bright idea…

I was going to fill the box with loose Cheerios!

So I grabbed my personal box of Cheerios out of the cupboard.

And filled the bottom of the box with a layer of Cheerios.

Hahaha… 😂

Next organize your bags of cereal inside your decorated box.

Before taping the box closed, fill the rest of the box will Cheerios.

I’m sure your loved one will thank you for the excess of Cheerios later! 😂

I really got a kick out of this box!

I’m not sure how much my nephew enjoyed opening a box full of loose Cheerios but I thought it was hilarious.

Yes… you read that right.

I filled the rest of the box with loose Cheerios, just like they were plastic peanuts.

Hahaha… 😂

Hopefully they weren’t crushed to a powder by the time it got to him. 🤞🏻

Happy crafting!

SONshine Box

No that’s not a typo… I really do know how to spell sunshine correctly.

This post is all about the Son!

As in Jesus Christ, the son of God.

I recently helped my mother make a care package for her oldest grandson, who is currently serving a mission for the Chirch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Since April is the month we celebrate Easter, we decided to make a sunny “Son”shine box!

I loved making this box! It is so cheery and full of beautiful reminders of the Saviors sacrifice for man.

If you too are far from a loved one or are in need of ideas for your own missionary, this box is perfect. It would even make a great Easter basket theme!
