As you may know, we usually get pretty creative with our treat boxes. From these vintage camper treat boxes to these cute papercut cabins, we have thought up some unique designs over the years. But this time we’re keeping it simple! Our kraft paper treat box is perfect for beginners and very easy to make, especially with a cutting machine.

If you don’t have a cutting machine, we have also included a printable template if you want to cut your treat boxes by hand. Along with your preferred cutting tool, all you need is some kraft paper and embroidery floss or ribbon to tie a bow on the top.

Because our kraft paper treat box is so simple in its design, you can use it for just about anything! For example, you can use it as a goody bag for treats, as party favors for a birthday celebration, or even to wrap a small gift. However if you are looking for something more seasonal, check out our paper acorns (or this acorn treat box for something bigger), our candy corn treat boxes, or our cornucopia treat cones.

Another fun idea is to add a seasonal gift topper, like how we added a paper leaf from this fall wreath design. You can also browse our labels for ideas on what to put in your treat box. You can then stick one of the labels right onto the box!
