Good morning! Today I have a fun treat box to share with you – this time in the shape of an ice cream truck! July is National Ice Cream Month so this cute little treat box is perfect. The ice cream truck is hand-drawn and colored. Little white brads attach the wheels and the back of the ice cream truck lifts up and closes with Velcro.
The box comes together quickly and is a great size to hold all sorts of fun sweets! I had a lot of fun putting these treat boxes together and love how cute they turned out! I filled mine with a few sugar cookies and they made great little gifts. Below is the tutorial!
- Free Printable: Link located at the end of this post
- White cardstock to print on
- Paper Trimmer and/or scissors
- Tape runner or glue stick
- Scoring Board and stylus
- White brads
- Velcro Dots, 3/8″ (not pictured)
Step One: Download and print the free printable ice cream truck. Cut out each piece – eight pieces total including four wheels.
Step Two: Score the pieces along the fold lines. I love using a scoring board and stylus because the folds are nice and crisp. I’m also able to get a nice straight fold.
Step Three: Attach the wheels with small white brads. Lay the blue wheel on top of the pink wheel spot and poke a hole using your stylus, or another sharp tool, through both layers.
Step Four: Start building the ice cream truck. I used a tape runner which held up really well. Start at the front of the truck.
Once the front of the truck is assembled, attach the bottom and adhere the flaps on the back of the truck.
Step Five: Attach the back door to the ice cream truck. This is how you will get your yummy treats in and out of the ice cream truck! I attached the top of the door with my tape runner and then used two small Velcro dots to keep the door closed on the bottom.
Yay! The Ice Cream Truck Treat Box is assembled and ready to be loaded with sweets and treats!
