We always like to make treat boxes for holidays, but we have never actually designed one specifically for birthdays. Hello birthday cake boxes! These adorable pastel containers are great for gifting cake slices, but we also love them to use as styled gift boxes. Fill them with little candies and trinkets like you would a treat box, or use them for jewelry gifts like we did in our photos. All you need to do is add some shredded paper to keep your gifts from rustling around in the gifting process!
Printing your Cake Slice Box
Download the PDF at the bottom of the post and print onto white cardstock. The download includes the template for the box, candle, whipped cream and Happy Birthday gift tags. We did not create an SVG for this because using a cutting machine would mean that you wouldn’t have the cute sprinkles printed on the box. If you would rather print your birthday cake boxes in a solid color, you can find the blank template for the box in this post. The template indicates where to fold and glue so that the box fits together nicely. A glue dot roller, double sided tape and tacky glue are all good gluing options.
If you are looking for some inspiration for what to put into the box, find our super easy DIY wooden bead necklace tutorial. Rather than having a birthday gift tag on your box, you can also print a full-sized floral birthday card or striped birthday card for your loved ones. Head over to our membership page to start crafting with us, or follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for daily doses of DIY goodness. We would love to see how you are using your birthday cake treat boxes, so feel free to share your project photos with us using #DIYDreamingWithLia! Cheers ~ Lia & Team
