For Thanksgiving, I love to create projects that can be used to hold candy or other treats. This year, I decided to make these cute little window boxes with a pumpkin and acorn cutout.

I don’t do much designing for paper crafting, so it always takes me a little longer to create, especially when it involves perforations and folding.  But, I really enjoyed learning and figuring out how to make everything fit together.

Once the design was complete, it was super easy to put together. I sized the boxes so I could cut 3 from an 8.5″ x 11″ paper (they ended up approx. 2″ x 3″), I used some clear page protector cut down to size to close the windows.  After that was glued down, I folded along the perforated lines and glued the edge with a glue stick.  The bottom pieces interlock and will stay closed without adhesive, but for extra support, I glued those together as well. I inked the edges of the leaves and attached them with a small brad. Finally, I tied on the grateful tag and added some fall colored candy.  I think they turned out so cute!
