12 Days of Holiday Crafts by Crafting Cheerfully

On the Twelfth Day of a Crafty Christmas…

Good morning! Today I’m sharing the cut files to create these beautiful little Christmas boxes! Last month I created similar ones, my Autumn Treat Boxes, to use at Thanksgiving. I loved them so much, I decided to make more! I love how small the boxes are, yet they seem to hold a lot. Fill them with chocolates, cookies, candy or a holiday snack and gift them to someone special. Use them as holiday party favors or at place settings for a nice DIY touch.

Below are the free cut files and the quick tutorial for putting these together! I found the 110lb Kraft paper at Joann Fabrics. I love this weight of paper for treat boxes. It holds up well yet is still easy to work with.

Supplies Needed for DIY Christmas Treat Boxes:

** Links for the supplies I used are at the end of this post**

Step One: Use the free SVG files to cut out the boxes. If using a Cricut Explore, remember to change the layer with the pink lines to “Score” instead of “Cut” in Cricut Design Space. If your cutting machine does not have a scoring option, hide or delete the layer with pink lines. You can score the boxes by hand using the PDF scoring guide I have with the files. 

Place the 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of Kraft cardstock on your cutting mat the landscape way, so the width is 11″.

Step Two: After the boxes have been cut, fold along the score lines. Cut out a small square piece of craft plastic, a little less than 3″x3″, and adhere it to the wrong side of the box. I used my 1/4″ Scor-Tape. You could always give these boxes a completely different look and use colored sheets of cardstock instead of the clear craft plastic.

Step Three: Turn both parts of the box so their right sides are facing up and apply Scor-Tape to the small tabs as shown below. The lid of the box was created to be slightly larger than the bottom so they should fit together easily.

The treat boxes are finished and ready to be filled with goodies!!

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed my 12 Days of a Crafty Christmas Series! Christmas time and holiday crafting is my favorite! Putting together this series was so much fun and I hope you’ll give one of these projects a try!

    1. Hi! I added a PNG file for each box to my Resource Library. Hopefully they work with the silhouette software! Please let me know if you have any trouble! :) Thank you!!

  2. Hi – I have tried to email you – I have had these pinned for so long – just about to make them and I can’t use the file as I have the basic silhouette software. Could you share them with me in the dxp format so I can use them? Thank you

    1. Hi! Thank you for the message! – I haven’t received your email but I am happy to help! Can you email me at [email protected]? I only own a Cricut so I’m not able to test out the files on other machines but I think I can make a file you can use with your machine. Thank you! :) -Kimberly
