Marshmallow and cake pops are lots of fun to eat and look great, but displaying them on the buffet table can be a challenge. As part of a “Popcorn Box Challenge”, I created a little Halloween box perfect for serving decorated marshmallow (or cake) pops, and added a free printable as well.
I started by painting the popcorn box orange, using a mixture of Bright Orange and Burnt Orange acrylic paint (Americana, by DecoArt). It took 2–3 coats to cover the box completely. After it dried completely, I used a fan brush and the Bright Orange paint to dry brush some lighter orange texture onto the box.
While the paint was drying, I folded my medallion from striped paper. I used 2 strips of paper cut to 1.75 x 12″ each, and followed the basic procedure outlined in the July 4th Party Medallions tutorial. My pleats for this Halloween medallion were around 3⁄8″.
Once my medallion was assembled, I printed the 3″ Halloween Printable Circles onto white cardstock (mine are printed at 85% to make a 2.5″ circle), cut out the “Happy Halloween” circle, and glued it to the center of the medallion.
