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!

You can download the free SVG file for this project so you can make your own! I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my free SVG Library.  These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others.  This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Fall Favor Boxes. It will be listed under the Fall category.
