Create unique menswear treat boxes with a variety of options to choose from! These make memorable wedding favors, treat boxes and gift boxes.
Today is the last day of Wedding Week! It has been a lot of fun sharing all of these wedding crafts! Earlier in the series, I posted tutorials for my wedding dress boxes and lace dress boxes, so to round out the group, I am sharing my menswear DIY Groom Treat Boxes today!
These menswear boxes were actually the first boxes I created when designing this little treat box collection. I was looking for a groom treat box and could only find tuxedos. While tuxedos definitely say “groom” they don’t fit every wedding and every groom. I set out to design just a few more options to the tuxedo but ended up designing 12 new boxes! This collection of menswear boxes includes everything from a causal vest to black tie! So whether you are having a beach wedding, an outdoor barn wedding, or a big formal wedding – there is a menswear option that will fit your style!
I really enjoyed creating these and my hope is that if you are searching for a groom treat box you will find one that fits the groom and vibe of the wedding perfectly.
All 12 designs are available as a digital download in my Etsy shop. Print these on cardstock using your home computer or your favorite local printer. Once assembled they are perfect for holding treats, favors, and small gifts. They would make great wedding favors, groomsmen gift boxes (they are the perfect size for cufflinks and gift cards!) or can be used for events completely unrelated to weddings! Proms, school dances, Oscar night – the possibilities are endless!
Below is the tutorial for assembling the DIY Groom Treat Boxes! Cutting them out takes the longest, but is a great activity to do with friends or while watching your favorite Netflix show ;) My menswear boxes are even easier to assemble than my dress boxes since they have straight sides. If you are making both the dresses and suits, start with the suits to get used to the process!
Supplies Needed for DIY Groom Treat Box:
*This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Learn more and see my full disclosure policy here.
- DIY Dress Treat Box Printable – available in my shop!
- White paper for printing –
- I use 110lb Neenah White Paper. It goes on sale on Amazon every so often and you can get a ream for under $10
- Scor-Tape or Glue Stick
- I use Scor-Tape – it has a super strong hold, perfect for these treat boxes. It is less expensive than tape runners and holds a little better than glue sticks
- Scoring Board and Stylus *optional
- You can fold the treat box by hand but a scoring board and stylus are great for when you are making a lot of these. They also help make the folds crisp and smooth.
How to Assemble the Menswear Treat Box
Step One: Cut out the treat box.
Step Two: Score along the fold lines. Using a scoring board and stylus will create a crisp and smooth fold line. The image below shows the score lines in pink.
Step Three: Fold along the fold lines as shown below.
Step Four: Apply adhesive to the tabs. I use Scor-Tape because it is an affordable option that has a very strong hold – perfect for these boxes! I have also used Elmer’s Craft Bond glue sticks.
Step Five: Time to assemble the box! Attach the tabs to the front and back of the box working on one side first and then repeat for the other side.
The boxes are finished and ready to be filled with sweet treats, small gifts, or gift cards! Make one, or a bunch! They look so cute on their own as well as in a group!
*My boxes were made using 110lb cardstock. This made my boxes sturdy enough to hold a small bag of candy. If you are planning on making a bunch of these, I’d recommend testing one out to make sure the cardstock you choose to use is strong enough to hold the treat you want to use! This is really only an issue when using candy or treats that can get heavy.
Below are some of the menswear groom boxes in different styles. The bride and groom treat boxes coordinate with these dress treat boxes and are sold in a separate listing.
This post wraps up my collection of wedding treat boxes as well as Wedding Week here on my blog! Be sure to check out some of my other wedding-related crafts and Happy Crafting!!
