Are you looking for Easter basket craft ideas? Or Easter Craft ideas? I love making Easter gifts for the grandkids. Today’s craft project is one of our spring craft ideas. I am sharing how to make Easter Treat Boxes. This is a fun, and easy Easter craft idea. I have a free template for the pillow treat box, which will make this paper craft easy for you.
You can make, and fill these treat boxes to give to anyone special. Or add them to your kids Easter baskets.
Easter Treat Boxes DIY
You won’t need a die cutting machine for today’s paper craft project. Just scissors, and an x-acto knife, and a few other supplies.
How To Make Easter Treat Boxes
List of Supplies:
- Colored Craft Papers – 4 to 5 different colors *(see end of post)
- Cardstock paper – light color
- Craft Glue
- X-acto knife
- Pencil – to trace the template
- Treat Box Template
Trace the large pattern from the template file on the selected card-stock paper and carefully cut out the traced pattern; this is the template for the pillow box. Use the x-acto knife to cut out the egg shape from the box template.
Use a small pointy object or the back side of the x-acto knife to create half cuts along the dash lines on the box template. Apply glue along the thin part of the template.
Fold the large part on the other end and join it with the glued thin part.
Close any one ends of the box by folding in the 2 half circled parts.
Select 4-5 different colored craft papers and trace the small circles, grass, leaf and flower patterns on them. Roll the spiral cut out from is outer edge and glue the rolled part with the center of the spiral pattern to create flowers. You can add more leaves and flowers if you want to.
Glue the grass along the bottom edge of the box. Then glue the flowers, leaves and finally the small circles.
Close the Easter treat box after filling it with treats, simply fold in the half circle patterns and done!
