3D Cupcake Treat Boxes – 3D Cut Files

“Happy Birthday!” Now there’s a phrase we’ve been saying quite a bit around our house lately. Pretty much all of the birthdays in our family fall into the first few months of the year: consequently, I’ve got birthday parties on the brain. So, naturally, today’s design features a classic party treat…but in a less conventional form than you might be use to. Check out these whimsical, 3D cupcake treat boxes, and make some favors your party-goers are sure to gawk at.

How to Make

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the cupcake box pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re not using the SVG file that includes score lines, you can use the PDF version as a reference to know where your folds should go.

2. Start by assembling your cupcake base. Simply crease each of your fold lines, and glue your tabs to the inside of the hexagon bottom.

3.Repeat the process for the lid, attaching the decorative piece around the edge when you’re done (do not add the hexagon liner tot he inside just yet).

4. Take your frosting piece, and curl it by rolling it up a couple times. Then, insert the tabs into the holes in the lid like so. Make sure that the taller part of your frosting is in the center, with it gradually decreasing in size as you get to the outer edge of the spiral.

Once you glue down the tabs on the inside of the lid, you can add your larger hexagon liner to cover up the “mess.”

    Hi! I am having some trouble with the cutting of the box – my Maker is cutting a random ‘V’ shape across the box part after scoring. I have checked all the scores & cuts are Attached correctly but cannot find why it is doing this. Have you come across this before?

      Hi There,

      Hmm, I’m not sure why it would be doing that. It sounds like there could be a couple score lines that didn’t get labeled/attached correctly, or maybe they were moved without the rest of the objects in the design during setup. I’m not 100% sure.
