Making treat boxes is one of my favorite ways to use paper and my Cricut and I have made dozens of different boxes for holidays, special occasions and more. Today I’m excited to share these new fruit party treat boxes – they are my new favorites!

I created five different box designs that make seven different fruit boxes. Strawberry, watermelon, grape, pineapple and the fifth one can be a lemon, lime or orange. They are perfect for holding small treats and sweets and are great for summertime. They would also be adorable party favors for a fruit-themed birthday party or baby shower.

I made my fruit party treat boxes using paper from a box of American Crafts Tropical Cardstock. I found it on Amazon and it had such great reviews I wanted to give it a try. It was a great weight for these boxes and had a really lovely texture to it. The tropical colors were a lot of fun. There are different themed boxes that I’m hoping to try in the future. The paper is 12″ x 12″ which meant each sheet of paper could fit two boxes.

The boxes each have a lid with a cut out design. I originally planned to put craft plastic behind each lid as I have done for my Christmas boxes and Autumn boxes, but decided instead to back them with colored paper. This worked really well especially for the watermelon! The cut files come with all of the pieces to fill the cutouts plus a large piece that can be cut from craft plastic to make a see through window. For these boxes I cut the large piece from blue cardstock.

These fruit boxes can be filled with any small treat or sweets. I filled mine with Tootsie Roll Fruit Chews. The cardstock I used was not food-safe, so wrapped treats were best. You could also put unwrapped treats like cookies into clear plastic bags before they go into the boxes.

Below is the tutorial for making these sweet fruit party treat boxes! The cut files are available in my Etsy shop!

Supplies Needed:

Supplies needed for tutti frutti boxes including paper, scissors, glue and tape.

Step One: Start by cutting the boxes out from Cricut Design Space. The files come with score lines but you can also score them by hand using a scoring board and stylus. The cut file comes with a guide for attaching the score lines in Cricut Design Space.

Step Two: Fold the boxes along the score lines.

Step Three: Fill in the cut outs on each box lid. You can do this with the matching pieces that come with each cut file. Swap the blue piece out for clear craft plastic for a peekaboo window.

Step Four: Use double-sided tape to adhere the box pieces together. I used 1/2″ Scor-Tape on the flaps for the bottom of the box and the box lid.
