‘Tis the season for all things cozy! Relaxing in a winter cabin with some cocoa and cookies sounds pretty cozy to us, which is why Krista created this papercut cabin treat box.

Due to the intricate details of this papercraft, we recommend using a cutting machine. This will make it much easier and faster to cut out. Otherwise, you can always use our printable template to cut your cabin treat box by hand.

Wintry Treats

Our cabin treat box is an alpine-style cabin with an A-shape frame that opens at the top. If you’d like a printable option without papercut details, you can always make these cozy cabin treat boxes instead. Using our template below, you can make as many treat boxes as you want for friends and family. Then add some yummy cookies or other goodies inside!

Although we designed this project as a treat box, you could also use it as decor around your home. Or if you’re having a winter celebration, you can set a cabin treat box on each person’s plate as a fun surprise.

How to Make a Cabin Treat Box

  1. Gather tools and materials.
  2. Cut out and score the paper cabin pieces according to template. If you are not using a cutting machine, use the PDF template to trace onto your paper of choice and then cut it out with a detail knife and ruler. Score and fold along all of the dotted lines.
  3. Glue the vellum window piece to the inside (you can also use clear acetate if you prefer). Glue the railing and trim detail to the front.
  4. Form cabin into a box shape, gluing the small tab to the opposite side. Overlap the bottom flaps as follows: square flap first, then the two side tabs, then the last square flap on the bottom.
