Cinco de Mayo party favors are super-easy with these free printable boxes. In festive colors, each box has a top flap that reads “Fiesta” and is reminiscent of the papel picado flags that are used at many Mexican celebrations. The boxes are a great size for party favors so you’ll be able to fit lots of goodies in them.

To assemble your box, cut along the solid line. The printable template does not have dashed lines on it so you’ll need to use the folding guide image below as a guide for scoring the paper. Use a ruler and a bone folder to score your lines. If you don’t have a bone folder, you can use a knitting needle or the blunt side of a butter knife to make your lines. The goal is to make a depression in the paper to ensure your folds are nice and clean!
Easter is fast approaching and we’ve got another free paper box template. This pillow box is easily made from plain white heavy paper (card stock). We’ve created the design in 4 Spring colors so you can choose your favorite!
Here’s a great list of little treats you might want to include in your Easter Pillow Box:

I really love how these came out and I was really surprised at how much I could fit in them!
There are so many things that I love about this free Easter pillow box, but at the top of the list is the egg-shaped window that gives a peek to the colorful treats inside (Jordan almonds are one of my all-time fave candies!). Spring has always been my favorite season, mostly for the exciting bursts of color that slowly start to make their way back into the world. The window in this box is easy to make and allows you to let all of those wonderful colors show through.
How to Make Your Box
To make the Easter Egg Pillow Box, print both the box and the folding guide. Cut out both templates and line up the folding guide with the backside of the pre-designed box. Now you can use your bone folder to score along the dotted lines. (Note: If you don’t have a bone folder, use some other object with a blunt tip, such as a knitting needle, to make your score lines.)
Next, use an X-acto knife to carefully cut out the egg shape above and below the “Happy Easter” banner. Once your window is cut, cut out a rectangle from the plastic page protector slightly larger than the egg window. Add a thin cut of tape to all sides of the plastic rectangle and carefully place over the window hole (be sure to tape it to the backside and not the front!). Now you can continue assembling your box as usual.
This free box template is just the right size for a Hershey’s Kiss! St. Patrick’s day is as good a day as any to give away kisses, so why not make the treat a little more special by offering your gift in this St. Patty’s Day themed box complete with a 4-leaf-clover lid closure.
To make the box, you’ll need the box template and folding guide (click image below), small sharp scissors (or an x-acto knife), a ruler, a bone folder, and either glue or double-sided tape. Take special care to make good creases with your bone folder along the folding lines, especially towards the top of the box where the heart clover “petals” are.
