Package your homemade holiday treats with these Christmas cookie boxes and gifts tags! These printables are a fun way to gift homemade holiday treats to family, friends and neighbors.
It’s the tenth day of my series “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” and I’m excited to share my new Christmas cookie boxes and gift tags! These are perfect for gifting homemade treats this holiday season. We love to bake different kinds of cookies at the holidays, which means we usually end up with way too many cookies. Luckily, we love to gift homemade treats to neighbors, friends and families. These boxes and gift tags are a fun way to package your treats!
My new printable packet is available in my Etsy shop and includes a milk carton-style treat box, a small basket, a quart-size baggie topper and gift tags. All of the printables feature a cute holiday baking design I hand-drew and then digitally colored. They also come with a handy spot to write the recipient’s name, along with a spot that reads “From the Kitchen of:” so you can add your name too!
These boxes are great for Christmas cookies but also any holiday treat you make! If you are gifting a larger amount of treats, use the gift tags to attach to a larger box, tupperware or wrapped plate. A bag topper that fits quart-sized plastic baggies is also included. It is perfect for cookies and sweets but also homemade trail mixes, peppermint bark or holiday candies.
Below is the tutorial for making one of the treat boxes that comes in the kit. It comes in two sizes so you can pick the one that fits your treat best!
Christmas Cookie Box Tutorial
- Printable Christmas Cookie Boxes
- White cardstock – I use 110lb cardstock
- Paper Trimmer or scissors
- Scoring Board and stylus
- Double-sided tape – I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape
- Hole punch and 1/4″ ribbon or Snowflake Clothespins
Assembling the Box
Step One: Download and print the treat boxes onto white cardstock. Cut out the boxes and the bows.
Step Two: Score the boxes along the fold lines and gently fold them. For the diagonal lines at the top of the boxes, I place a self-healing mat under the printable boxes and trace over the diagonal lines using my scoring tool.
Step Three: Next, apply adhesive to the tabs on the box. The small box has one tab; the large box has two. I used 1/4″ Scor-tape, a really strong double-sided tape. Attach the box together at the sides.
Close up the bottom of the box.
Step Four: Add a paper bow to the top of the box. This is optional, but a sweet detail!
Step Five: Fill the boxes with your homemade sweet treats and close the top of the box. Use a small clothespin to keep it closed or punch two holes in the top of the box to tie it closed with ribbon. Before filling the boxes, you will want to fill in the tags on the sides of the box. You can also do this before assembling the boxes!
The boxes are done! They are so cute and a fun way to gift holiday treats.
The printable packet is available as an instant digital download in my new Etsy shop, Designing Cheerfully. This new shop now has all. It comes with these boxes as well as a printable basket, bag topper and gift tags.
I hope you enjoy these printables! Have fun baking this holiday season!
