If you enjoy gifting handmade cookies and treats for Christmas and other winter celebrations, you will love this DIY paper cabin cookie box. Our pattern for this project includes two sizes, and the larger cabin is a great pairing for our smaller A-frame cabin cookie boxes.
Though we recommend using a cutting machine to cut your cabins, you are also welcome to cut by hand using our printable template. Once you’ve assembled all of your paper cabins, you can make them look extra festive by adding a tiny bow at the top like we did.

Cozy Cookie Cabins
This paper cabin cookie box is an easy project for a beginner who has a cutting machine. The SVG file is set up with layers for both the cut lines and the score lines, which must be manually set once uploaded into your design software. If you are new to using our SVG files with your cutting machine, you can refer to this video for a full tutorial.
If you do not have a cutting machine, you can print the PDF template and cut your box with a craft knife. This template can be printed onto standard letter-sized paper for the small box. And for the larger template, simply print and tape the template together, then trace the cut lines onto your 12×12 cardstock sheets.
When assembling the box, you will note how the score lines are essential for making crisp corners. Once you have folded the base, add some glue to secure the overlapped pieces and glue the inside base insert into place. This will ensure your treats will stay tucked inside.
Crafting tips: When arranging my cookies into the box, I start with a lining of baking paper. This will keep the butter and oils from touching the paper cabin. This also makes a pretty display when opening the box. Add your snowy cabin room over the top and tie on a pretty ribbon. You now have a gift that is pretty both inside and out!
- Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 (recommended)
- Detail Knife, Cutting Mat, Scoring Tool & Ruler (if cutting by hand)
