Create sweet flower treat boxes that look like seed packets! These cute boxes are perfect for Easter, spring time, gardeners, Mother’s Day, parties and more! Fill the free printable boxes with “jellybean seeds” or other small candies.
Hello Crafty Friends! After spending the weekend gardening in the warmer weather I am in a flower crafting mood! Today’s treat boxes are little flower seed packet pillow boxes. They are perfect for holidays like Easter and Mother’s Day and also make adorable party favors. I filled mine with M&Ms but have also filled them with “jellybean seeds” for Easter basket fillers. Any kind of small candy will work well! They are also a great size for gift cards and other small gifts.
I created these boxes by first drawing and painting some of my favorite flowers. After that, I brought the paintings into Photoshop and turned them into cute little pillow boxes that can be printed and assembled.
There are four box designs that feature sunflowers, zinnias, lavender and daisies! I like to print my treat boxes on a heavier cardstock and almost always use 110lb Neenah white paper. It is a great weight for boxes if your printer is able to print on it. If not, you could always try 80lb paper.
Pillow boxes are some of the easiest boxes to assemble and require only one strip of adhesive! They make excellent party favors and gifts and are a great project for a spring craft day! The tutorial is below and at the end of the post is the link to my free printable flower boxes you can download for free. :)

How to Make Flower Seed Treat Boxes
- White card stock. I used 110 lb bright white paper
- Paper trimmer and/or scissors
- Glue, tape runner or double-sided tape. I used 1/4″ Score-Tape
- Scoring board and stylus
- Self-healing mat
- Free printable: Located in my Resource Library
Step by Step Tutorial
Step 1: Print the treat boxes and cut them out with a scissors. I like to cut right inside the solid line on the front side of the box. You’ll notice in the second picture below I’ve trimmed off that solid line on the left side of the box.
Step 2: Fold along the dotted lines. If you have a score board and stylus, score along the straight lines before folding.
Lay the boxes on a self-healing mat and use the end of a scoring stylus to trace the curved lines a few times. This will score the curved fold line making it easier to fold along it.
After the dotted lines are scored, fold along the straight line and create a crisp fold. Gently fold along the curved lines.
Step 3: Adhere the sides of the treat box together using glue, a tape runner or double-sided tape. I used 1/4″ Score-Tape which is a strong adhesive.
After the treat box is adhered, fold in the top and bottom of the box.
I had a lot of fun filling and gifting these little treat boxes. They are perfect for spring and for Mother’s Day! I’ll be back next week with another flower-themed gift box! Have a great week!
