Need some last-minute gift ideas for the holidays? Wrap up some treats or chocolates in a handmade gift box! Our paper bird treat box is easy to make with some cardstock paper and a cutting machine. And you can even make a few extra to use as Christmas decorations.
Just download our SVG cut file (or PDF template if cutting by hand) and follow our simple instructions below.
We love making treat boxes for every occasion. A few years ago we made some holly leaf treat boxes for Christmas and felt like it was time to come up with something new for the holiday. So Lindsay designed this paper bird treat box that looks like a dove — a popular Christmas decoration and a sweet, little symbol of peace and love.
Along with gifting these treat boxes or using them as Christmas tree decorations, you could also use them as table decor or as place settings. Just write the name of each person at your table directly onto the paper bird treat box and then personalize it with their favorite treats!

Lia what is the size of the finished item? Patricia
It is about 5 inches beak to the tail.
Thanks for replying Lia. It’s working now. I also needed to restart my computer, something I’m not good at! Merry Christmas
Oh good I’m glad it’s working 🙂
I have a cricut maker. I’ve downloaded the file and extracted it. When I try to upload it into design space it says it’s an unsupported file. Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong would be appreciated.
Hi Jayne! That message pops up when one tries to upload the zipped file instead of the extracted SVG file (so the file should end in .svg, not .zip). If you are still having trouble, please send us a screenshot of the error message to firstname.lastname@example.org!
