Thanksgiving is over, December has begun—it’s officially the holiday season! And it’s time to get ready for Christmas gifting. Today I’ve got an extra special design that would make a perfect present for Harry Potter fans (particularly ones with a sweet tooth). Use this fun template to make a chocolate frog box that looks like it came straight from Honeydukes!
When my husband and I visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter a couple years ago, I absolutely loved the sweet shop! And the chocolate frogs in their lovely packaging were pretty much irresistible. So, this Christmas, I thought it would be fun to make some boxes of my own to give out to family and friends.
What you need:
- My Chocolate Frog Box Template
- Bone Folder (optional)
- Ruler/Scoring Tool
How to Make:
1. Print the box design, and cut out the shapes.
2. Use a ruler and scoring tool to prep your creases (particularly the ones on the top section). Use a bone folder to make your creases.
Note: If you don’t have a scoring tool or bone folder, you can always fold it normally. I just really like the crisp look this creates.
3. Top: glue the tab to the neighboring section to creat the pentagon shape.
Bottom: glue each of the triangle flaps to the neighboring section. Fold down flaps and glue over the top.
Connect the top and bottom box sections (the box will open like a clam shell).
As part of the download, I’ve also included an SVG cut file. In order for this to work, it needs to be set up as a “print then cut” file. I’ve been hesitant to offer “print then cut” designs on my blog because of the number of intricate steps involved in the execution of the cut. Plus, it only works in Cricut design space, so Silhouette users are left out.

I’ve also included an insert for a “famous witch or wizard” card along with the chocolate frog box template. You can customize this with a picture of the person your gifting this to, a favorite celebrity, or maybe a picture of you (because everyone could use more pictures of your pretty face)!
I use a Cricut Explore to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it! For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome Harry Potter freebies available on my blog!
I’m loving how this box turned out! Now all I need is a frog candy mold and I’ll be set.
Enjoy putting this fun chocolate frog box together! Do you have a Harry Potter fan in your life that would appreciate this?
