Free Printable Trick or Treat Color Block Labels + Box Template

Free Printable Color Block Trick or Treat Labels + Box Template (PDF & SVG Cut File Included) #halloween

I’m a little bit obsessed with packaging, and Halloween provides so many opportunities to create some seriously fun packages. Super cute Halloween boxes and bags are awesome (pssst … tune in tomorrow for cute), but I thought I’d do something a little different and go with a more clean, modern look for this packaging project.

These ultra modern treat boxes would work just as well at a Halloween party for adults as they would as sweet boxes for trick or treaters or favors for little Halloween partygoers, and I’m sharing the chic, color block “trick or treat” labels and treat box template (both printable PDF and SVG die cut files) with you so you can create your own modern Halloween treat packages, too. Happy Halloween!

This Is Halloween from K.becca

I always have so much fun designing for Halloween, and this year has been no exception. I recently launched my “This Is Halloween” collection over on K.becca, and I decided to go a little geometric this year with digital papers and journaling cards that feature simple dots, lines, stripes, and other subtle, geometric patterns.

But I couldn’t resist adding some cute and created a collection of sentiments that are a combination of hand lettered words and typewriter type, plus hand drawn die cutting files that include ghosts, pumpkins, and stars. Check ‘em out:

In addition, I recently opened a shop over at Creative Market (yay!) and have two sets of Halloween vector clip art for sale that you can use in both personal and commercial projects, like greeting cards, photo cards, stationery, rubber stamp designs, website elements, and invitations. I’ll be adding more to the shop soon!
