Learn how to make simple baseball jersey pillow boxes! They make fun party favors for baseball-themed birthdays, team parties, the Fourth of July, summer and more!
Hello Crafty Friends! Today I’m excited to share these fun baseball jersey pillow boxes with you! They are perfect for this time of year! With baseball season in full swing, these boxes would be a fun addition to a team event, tailgate, or baseball party. They are a great size for holding small treats and could also hold a pair of folded baseball tickets.
These boxes come in red and blue making them a fun idea for Fourth of July festivities this summer. We have celebrated a few Independence Days at the ballpark, so I often think of baseball when thinking of the Fourth.
The printable PDF file for these boxes is available in my shop. It includes a full picture tutorial for assembling. These boxes are a quick DIY – making them easy to make multiples of.
Each box measures 4″ x 2.5″ once assembled but can be stored flat. The PDF includes boxes in both red and blue ready to print off on your home printer or at your favorite local printer.

- Double-sided tape – I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape
- Paper trimmer and/or scissors
- Scoring Board
- Scoring tool or embossing stylus and self-healing cutting mat
- Bowl – helpful to use as a guide while scoring the boxes!
How to Assemble the Pillow Boxes
How to Assemble the Pillow Boxes
Step One: Print the baseball boxes on white cardstock and cut them out. I printed my boxes on 110lb white index paper, but use whatever works well with your printer. The boxes will work best with paper that is 65lb or heavier. I used my paper trimmer to cut the straight edges and a small precision scissors to cut the rest.
Step Two: Score the boxes along the dotted fold lines. Use a scoring board and stylus to score along the two straight fold lines. To score along the curved edges, I used a bone folder and a self-healing mat. I went over the curved lines a few times, pressing firmly. If you have a bowl on hand, you can use it as a guide for scoring the curved edges.
After scoring the boxes, gently fold the boxes along the score lines.
Step Three: Use adhesive to form the pillow box. Place a strip of double-side tape along the tab, then connect the box.
Step Four: Fold in the bottom of the box and fill with sweets or small gifts. I like to fold the bottom of the box so the back of the box folds in under the top. Since the paper used is most likely not food-safe, you may want to place treats like candy in a bag before putting them in the box or use wrapped candies.
