Cake Gift Box with a Window
Making the see a see-through window is optional. You can use the regular lid instead.
Prep Time: 20 min
- card stock or photo paper
- self-adhesive paper
- glue stick
- printable cake gift box (print it out below)
- colour printer
- crafting scissors
- metal ruler
- self-healing cutting mat
- blade knife
1) Print the box
Print the treat box on DIN A4 or US Letter size cardstock or photo paper. Read our tips for printing perfect printables to achieve the best results.
2) Cut out the pieces
Cut out the pieces along the grey lines and fold the flaps inwards. Crease each fold down firmly. Once you’re done, you should have two sides with flaps, two without flaps, one bottom piece and the lid. We also printed our decorative pattern on self-adhesive paper and applied it to the back of the back of the various elements.
3) Make the lid
To make a see-through window, place the lid on a cutting mat and remove the white piece in the middle with a blade knife. Using tape, attach a piece of cellophane to the back of the lid and glue the side flaps together.
4) Assemble the box
Apply glue to all the flaps that say “Glue”. Attach the side to the bottom piece and then glue the sides together, making sure the top edges meet evenly. Run your fingers down each seam a couple of times so the glue adheres firmly. Finally, adhere the lid and fill your box with cakes and treats.
Tip for transporting cakes
It’s a good idea to place cakes on a cake board or cupcakes and petit fours in cupcakes liners (cases) before putting them in the box, so the moisture of the cake doesn’t soften the box.
Use the printable as a template
If you prefer another pattern, use our cake gift box as a template. Simply cut out the different parts of the bag and arrange them on the back of the paper or cardboard you wish to use. Trace the pieces with a pencil and continue as described.
