Making paper boxes is a fun way to add custom details to a party or a celebration. These paper box templates are super cute and very simple to craft. All you need is your favorite craft paper, liquid glue, and a pair of scissors or a Cricut machine.
Whether you prefer to hand cut with scissors or use a cutting machine, both PDF and SVG cut files are provided in the free paper box templates below. I recommend using a scoring board if you are cutting with scissors.
You all know how much I love color, so I made one box in each color of the rainbow! Love rainbows like me? You probably will adore my Unicorn Rainbow Paper Flowers!
These paper box templates are most ideal for small treats like candy or small favors. And they are quite addicting to make especially when you get to the fun twisty top of the box!

Free Flower Paper Box Template and Tutorial
Below are the supply resources I used to create these colorful paper boxes.
- Scissors or cutting machine. Cricut Maker makes this job much easier with the rotary blade!
- Text weight metallic paper
- Glue gun
- Small pearls (optional for the center of the flower on the top of the paper box)
- Scoring stylus or wheel. (If you are not using a cutting machine I recommend this scoring board option)

Some crafters ask about opening the boxes with the flower on top. After some testing foam tabs work well for holding the paper flower on the top and allowing the receipt to easily remove the flower when it’s time to open.
