Welcome to day 25 of my 25 days of Craftmas series. Today, I’m showing you how to make these Santa Suit Treat Boxes.  These boxes are so quick and easy to make and they turned out so cute.   They can hold small toys or some Christmas candy.  They would look great on a festive holiday table and also are perfect classroom or office treats.  I just love how they turned out.  I’m excited to show you how to make your own.  Read on for the full tutorial!

The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project.  I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library.  These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others.  This library is open to everyone and is free!  You can access the library here. Look for the file called Santa Suit Treat Box BA2325. It will be listed under the Craftmas 2023 Category-Day 25.



Open the design in your cutting software and resize it to 11″ wide.  This makes a box that is about 2″ x 2″ x 2″.  The bottom of the box has perforation lines that will be cut with a regular blade.  If you’re using Cricut Design Space, you’ll need to attach the perforation lines to the shape behind it.  Once everything is sized correctly, cut out the pieces with your Cricut or Silhouette.

Once the cardstock is finished cutting, remove it from the cutting mat. It’s best to flip over the mat and gently bend it over until the cardstock releases. This way, the cardstock shouldn’t get bent.



Grab your box piece.  The two flaps with the handles are the front and back.  The flaps with the slits are the sides.  Start by gluing the small white piece of cardstock onto the front.  This will look like the fur of Santa’s coat. The front and back flaps are exactly the same, so it doesn’t matter which one you glue it on.  Just make sure the bottom of the white fur piece lines up with the perforation lines at the bottom of the front flap.  You don’t want it to go below those lines.

Glue the black belt piece right above the white cardstock.  The edges of the belt should line up with the edges of the front flap.

Glue the larger piece of fur above the belt.  The top of it should line up with the opening of the handle at the top of the front flap.

Glue the belt buckle over the belt and buttons above the belt, centered on the white cardstock.

Next, fold along all the perforation lines.

Set the box on a flat surface and fold up the front, back, and sides.

Hold the pieces in place with one hand while you add candy with the other.

Bring the two handles together and pinch them together.

Next, fold over one of the sides.  The handles should go right through the slit.

Fold over the other side,  The handles should go through that slit, too.

If you look really closely at the handles, you’ll see a small slit on each side.

Once the side is over the handles, push the cardstock into the slit.  This should keep the sides in place and stop the box from opening on its own.

And that’s it, this cute little box is finished!
