The beautiful alex and alexa store from London recently asked me to design a Halloween craft to repurpose their great packaging boxes.  I decided to create a Paper City style trick-or-treat scene for them.  They were really fun to make!

If you want to make one yourself, you can use any box you’d like.  Then print out the template below and string them up with tape and thread. Happy trick-or-treating!

Click on the template below, then print.

    Wonderful! What a nice idea- I could imagine this also with other scenes. Just discovered your blog through "lightbluegrey".

    Thanks everyone! Having the scene inside the box makes a very nice stage to play in. I'll have to make some more themes. Maybe add a "winter package" to this one for December. ha.

    Thank you! My 2-yr-old son just saw this over my shoulder, and immediately demanded his own kitty, tree, moon and bat. In 5 minutes we had it all assembled and he's happily playing trick-or-treat right now. We'll look forward to some more templates!

    C'est superbe, je vais essayer de refaire la même chose avec mes petits élèves.
    Merci pour toutes ces merveilleuses idées.
    Bon week end.

    Can I request a paper neighborhood or paper Zoo? I love the city but I would also like to see a more relatable place to imagine like houses, a park, a baseball diamond… and a zoo would be cool with all of you neat stylized animals. ;)
