For our Christmas dinner this year, I’ve been trying a few different ways to incorporate a papercraft into our table setting. Obvious option is to make a festive place card. In experimenting and playing around I somehow ended up with a treat box instead. Not sure if I’ll be using this for our table setting, but I figured since it’s a cute template I’ve already created…might as well share!
You basically just fold along the dotted line guides and then cut out the whole shape. You glue the white flap to the inside and fold up the bottom flaps in the order numbered, slipping the last flap into the slit that remains. So it seals up nicely by itself. These would be a great Christmas treat boxe as party favors or punch a hole and hang them up in a garland…lots of possibilities. I was thinking to put names in the circle label so they could actually be place cards… but I’m just not sure I want to give everyone treats before dinner 🙂 Let me know what you think and enjoy!
To try to make it clearer, I’m adding a photo of my sample, so you can sort of see what it looks like. Basically, the circle label is on the front side of the long top flaps. I’ve just attached them by punching a hole and tying with ribbon, but you could staple or punch two holes to string ribbon through. For the box itself, I guess more of a bag – you basically fold the entire paper along those dotted line guides. Then it’ll be easy to glue the white flap to the inside. Then the bottom section doesn’t really require glue at all, just push down the flaps in the order numbered and the fourth flap is slipped into the slit… you might have seen this kind of construction in other boxes. Really simple… have fun!
