Want Candy?!

Halloween is just a few weeks away and I'm sure many of you (like me) have Halloween preparations in our mind. Well today let me share with you an easy candy container that you can give to your children's friends, the family or anybody that you feel might need a few sweet treats this season.

Want candy pillow box

this is super easy to make and the best part of it all is that it uses a recyclable item. You're not only giving somebody a fun treat, you're also being earthy friendly. Now who wouldn't like that?

The foundation of this container is an empty toilet paper roll. And all you do to dress it up is some pattern paper, ribbon, a few stickers or embellishments and of course....... CANDY to go inside!!!

Simply measure the width of your empty roll, cut a piece of paper to measure that size, roll it around the cardboard and adhere. Wrap a ribbon in the middle and add embellishments.

Now to secure candies in it, fold the flaps onto each other. You want to make a pillow box from this. Fold one side first, fill with desired candies and fold the other side to close.

Easy peazzyyy!!!

So there you have it, something easy and cute. Plus this can be transferred to any theme you can think of, all you have to do is change the papers, embellishments and even the candy treats you put inside. So what are you waiting for? Start saving those toilet paper rolls. *wink*

Thanks for stopping by.

Till next time,
