Halloween Candy Treat Holder

I made this treat holder last year with my cricut using the October 31st cartridge. I loved how it came out and it was a big hit around here.

So when I saw the Halloween Cuddly Friends Collection over at SVGCuts, I thought they would be so cute to use with the treat holder. I made this one using Frankenstein, what an adorable collection this is and a must have for Halloween.

Here is the treat holder closed with a belly band around it. Take it off and pull Frankenstein by his head...

And he pops up holding a candy treat, now that would put a smile on any child's face!!

I made Frankenstein and his pieces 4.5" high, I welded a 1" rectangle to the bottom of his body in Make the Cut so I could attach him to the 1" flaps that folds in on the bottom. I cut a pen spring in half and glued them to the feet and then onto the body, the candy bar tucks right in between the feet and body. I put a little tacky glue on the folds at the top of the box so when it opens it sticks to the 1" flap at the bottom.

Here is a link, of a card showing how to put the box together, same idea except the cut out is bigger for the card to fit through.

I added two files of the box that holds the cuddly friend, it's very easy to put together, just fold on the score lines and the two end flaps are glued together to form the box, but before you do that the character slides in between and is held by the flaps.
Of course if you want the cute Halloween friends you can get them at SVGCuts
