Grab these free printables and create your own St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Treat Boxes! Fill with small sweets and treats!
Create these fun shamrock treat boxes for St. Patrick’s Day! They are quick and easy to put together using my free printable! They are designed to look like little shamrock seed boxes. I chose to fill mine with green jellybeans, to look like seeds, but any small candy would work. You could even fill them with gold coins or stickers!
Pillow boxes are fun treat boxes that are the perfect size for holding small gifts and treats! They only have one tab that needs to be adhered making them one of the easiest boxes to assemble! You can make them using decorative paper or use printables like these to make special boxes for holidays and events. If you enjoy making these, be sure to check out my other pillow box printables, like these cute Harry Potter Pillow Boxes and my Love Bug Pillow Boxes.
Below is the tutorial and free printables! There are two boxes on each printable page and the finished boxes measure about 3.75″ long, corner to corner, and 1.5″ wide. I like to print my boxes on 110lb white paper. This is a great weight for treat boxes if your printer can handle the weight.

Step by Step Tutorial
Step 1: Print and cut out the pillow boxes.
Grab the free printable boxes and print them on white cardstock. I like to print my treat boxes on 110lb cardstock. Cut out the boxes using a scissors and paper trimmer. You can use a paper trimmer on the straight edges. I like to trim the outline on the left side of the box off as you can see in the picture below.
Cut out the rest of the box with scissors.
Step 2: Fold along the dotted lines!
Start by folding the treat box in half along the center dotted line.
Next, fold the tab over the top of the box along the dotted line.
To fold along the curved parts of the treat box, I find it easiest to trace the dotted lines with an embossing stylus. This will score the curved edges making it easier to gently fold along the curved lines.
Step 3: Adhere the sides of the treat box together.
Use double-sided tape, glue or a tape runner to adhere the left side of the box together. You will want to use a strong adhesive so it stays together after you fill the boxes! I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape.
Push in the bottom of the box and it is ready to be filled with candy or small treats! The paper you use will most likely not be “food safe” so you may want to put unwrapped candy in a tiny plastic baggie or choose wrapped food. If making these for kids, they are the perfect size for stickers, plastic cold coins, and tiny toys.
