If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you know I have a deep love for crafting treat boxes. It is by far my favorite project to paper craft! Today I have a brand new free printable treat box perfect for the holidays! This Cozy Cabin Treat Box is ideal for holding holiday treats and cozy munchies. Try not cutting out the windows and use this as a fun gift box. Wouldn’t it be perfect for warm wool socks or a handmade ornament? I also have a few of these set up around the house for decoration!
Supplies Needed for DIY Log Cabin Holiday Treat Box
**Links to products I used are at the end of the post**
- Free printable – link at the end of my post
- White cardstock to print on
- Thin Clear Craft Plastic
- Double-sided tape – I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape
- Paper Trimmer and/or scissors
- Hole punch
- Scoring Board and stylus
- X-Acto Knife and cutting mat
- Gelly Roll Stardust Clear Pen
Step One: Print the free printable treat boxes on white cardstock. I use 110lb Neena Bright White paper. Cut out the two pieces using a scissors.
Step Two: Using an X-Acto knife, cut out the windows, notches and handles. I use a ruler and line my X-Acto knife up against it to get a nice, straight cut. You can choose to not cut out the windows and leave them yellow :)
Step Three: Once everything is cut out, it is time to cover the windows with craft plastic. I used my Scor-Tape to adhere the craft plastic onto the back side of the treat box pieces.
Step Four: Score along the fold lines. Using a scoring board and stylus will create nice, crisp fold lines. The diagram below shows where you should score the pieces.
Fold along your score lines.
Step Five: It’s time to start assembling the box! Adhere the two pieces together along the tabs using Score-Tape.
Fold the bottom in.
If you plan to fill the box with any goodies that are on the heavy side, I recommend taping the bottom of the box from the inside. This will prevent the box from opening up.
After I assembled my boxes, I decided to add a little glitter to the roof of my boxes. I used a clear Gelly Roll Stardust pen and traced all the scallops on the roof. I think it adds a nice little shimmer and dresses up the boxes!
The Cozy Cabin treat boxes are finished! Fill them up with chocolates, a s’mores kit, or cookies! Don’t cut out the windows and use this as a gift box or decoration!
