DIY Cookie Box Gift Printable

Hello, it’s Kati from Houseful of Handmade back again to share one last gift idea before Christmas! If you are like me, neighbor gifts, teacher gifts, and coworker gifts are the last thing I think about. Sometimes realizing the night before that it’s the last day I will see them before the Christmas break. But if you are the same way, don’t worry, I have a fun and easy DIY cookie box gift idea for just such an occasion.

The Christmas season is all about baking at our house. We love to enjoy lots of our families favorite treats, and I love to keep the oven on to warm up the house! I always remember having a table full of treats from all our friends and family that we would snack on during the Christmas break and love having the same for my kids. So giving the gift of baked goods just makes sense.

There are a lot of options when you are thinking of baked gifts, but cookies are one of the easiest! You can make up a big batch and spread the joy to lots of friends and neighbors. As much as I can appreciate the classic paper plate to deliver the deliciousness, I decided this year it was time for an upgrade! Since I am a sucker for creating amazing things out of paper, I grabbed a couple pieces of cardstock and I made this easy hexagon cylinder that is perfect for wrapping and transporting cookies to all your loved ones.

Now you may be thinking the paper plate option is definitely faster (and it is) than these Christmas folded treat boxes. But you can easily cut and fold a bunch of these cute DIY cookie box gifts while you wait for the cookies to bake. And who wouldn’t love displaying this cute box on their desk (and sneaking a cookie every now and then). Even if you wait until the last minute to make your gift, no one will know because this cookie box looks like it was your plan all along.

So if you need a quick gift for the season, I’m going to show you how easy it is to make this DIY cookie box gift. Then you can cross a few more names off your list.

Start by downloading the printable file by clicking here and then print it on two pieces of cardstock. If you are using a printed cardstock, print the pattern on the back (plain side) of the cardstock. Then when you cut and assemble the boxes the cut lines will be on the inside.

Cut out the cardstock on the solid lines and crease along all the dotted lines. I used a paper cutter with a scoring blade to make it a little easier to fold on the dotted lines.

Assemble the base of the cookie box by first gluing the tabs on the bottom to the side tabs. Continue around in the circle until you get all the tabs on the bottom glued securely. Finally, glue the side flap to the back side of the side panel.

Assemble the lid of the cookie box by gluing the side flap to the underside of the side panel. Then to secure the top of the lid by interlocking the notches on the side of each flap. The flaps will fold under each other in a circle, once the last one is locked in, the top will be secure.

Fill your box with cookies! I love these Malted Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies or these Double Chocolate Nutella Cookies. And of course, store bought cookies work too.

Slide the lid onto the top of the box. If you want to attach a tag, use a hole punch to punch a hole on one of the lid flaps. String a piece of twine or ribbon through it and tie on a tag. You can download the printable tags I used here.

  1. Great idea.
    I am wondering how to change the measurements of the printable so that my cookies would fit inside.
