Today I’m excited to share this fun new St. Patrick’s day rainbow basket! My newest color-your-own treat box with you!! I love making coloring pages that double as fun treat boxes or baskets! I’ve created a few before like my color-your-own Easter basket and color-your-own gingerbread house. This one is my new favorite! I love how the rainbow handles some right out of the pot of gold! So fun!

To create your own box you can download the free printable which will print on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. I like to use 110lb cardstock for my treat boxes. My printer can handle this weight and it is sturdy enough to hold up and not collapse when I add things to the box.

After you finish coloring the box, simply cut it out and assemble using the tabs. I used a craft knife to cut slots along the top of each pot of gold. If you are creating these with kiddos and want to avoid using a craft knife, just attach the rainbow handle to the inside of the box with tape. Below you can see a box my daughter made.

Supplies Needed

Step By Step Tutorial

Step One: Color the treat box!

Download and print the free file on cardstock. I like to use 110lb paper. Color the printable box using colored pencils, markers, or crayons!

Step Two: Cut out the box!

The pieces for the St. Patrick's Day treat box are colored in and cut out laying on a table.

Step Three: Fold the treat box.

You can use a scoring board and stylus to score along the tabs or just fold by hand.

Step Four: Prepare the box for the rainbow handle by cutting a slits on either side of the box with a craft knife.

Time for the best part! The rainbow handle! If you are making this with kids, skip ahead to the next step! If you’d like to make it so the rainbow is coming out of the pot of gold, use a craft knife to cut along the top of the gold coins on both sides of the box. Use the handle as a guide to know how wide your cut slot needs to be.

Step Five: Add adhesive to the tabs and assemble the box.

Use double-sided tape along each tab then assemble the box. I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape on my tabs.

Step Six: Add the rainbow handle!

If you are making this with kids or decided to skip the step for adding slits into the side of the box, go ahead and tape the handle to the box on the inside.
