Halloween Cake Boxes Instructions

DIY cake box

The printable Halloween cake boxes are a Halloween DIY as cute as they are practical for handing out treats and candy. If you cut out the “Happy Halloween” panel on the front, you can create a window cake box.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty easy

Materials

  • heavy cardstock or photo paper
  • printable Halloween cake boxes (download below)
  • cellophane (optional)
  • tape
  • greaseproof paper or tissue paper
  • ribbon

Tools

  • craft scissors
  • glue stick or double-sided tape
  • metal ruler (optional)
  • bone folder (optional)
  • single hole punch

Instructions

  1. Print the box. Print the cake box on DIN A4 or US letter size photo paper or card stock. Optionally, print the decorative pattern on the back of the box.
  2. Cut out. Cut out the two front and back following the grey lines. Punch two holes into each top flap where the grey circles mark the spot.
  3. Make a window. To make a see-through window, place the front on a cutting mat and remove the middle with a blade knife. Using tape, attach a piece of cellophane on the back. This step is optional.
  4. Score and fold. Score and fold the box using the bone folder and metal ruler or do it freehand.
  5. Apply glue. Apply glue to all the flaps that say “Glue” or use double-sided tape.
  6. Assemble the cake box. Glue the front and back together. Pop the box open and flip in the left and right side flap. Fold the u-shaped flap in and then tuck gently the locking flap into the center where the other flaps meet. Give the box a tab on the bottom from the inside to nudge everything into place.
  7. Package cakes and cupcakes. To package cakes or cupcakes, fold a piece of greaseproof or parchment paper into thirds. Put a cake square in the middle and use the excess paper to place the cake in the box. Close the box using a piece of ribbon.
