Sweet Birthday Gift & Treat Boxes
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.

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

Wow , such an amazing idea. I can use this kind of box in form of cupcakes, like Mother’s day gifts for mom on this mother’s day.
Love this box idea but is there instructions on how to do the whip cream?
Hi Vicky! Our cupcake treat box has a similar top, and the post includes a photo tutorial that might be helpful! https://liagriffith.com/printable-cupcake-boxes/. Just start with one and overlap, making sure they all go in the same direction.
Wow it is such a amazing gift idea….
We think so, too! 😉
For the life of me I can’t figure out the whipped cream folding.. I’m sure I’m making it harder than it should be.. any tips??

The cake slice box is adorable. I love that you included the whipped cream and candle. I was just wondering if the cardstock size is 8 1/2×11?
Thank you, so glad you love it! Yes it’s 8.5×11.
