Large Halloween Match Box Pop Up Treat Holders

  This box is large enough to accommodate the pop up flying bats and some treats and a gift card or maybe even a little cash.  Super easy simple and fun to make.  Directions below the photographs.

How cute is this little Dracula Puppy Dog with the evil black kitty watching from above.  Too cute to spook!  

With a big ol' bat inside to protect the goodies inside.

And we can't forget SPIDERS, YIKES!

No bats in here, just more spiders.

Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, so to say, I took apart a larger box of Diamond matches and used it as a template, you remember the kind of matches Grandma kept in the kitchen to light the wood burning stove so she could cook up something yummy.
