Origami Treat Box

This is a super-easy folded box (with lid) that you can whip up in just a few minutes.

I use them all the time for:

  • “Shoot!  She’s invited my daughter over again and I haven’t had her daughter here yet!” hostess gift.
  • “I made way too many and if I don’t give some away, I’m going to eat them all” gift.
  • “Tell me if this tastes okay?” gift.
  • “Sorry I didn’t make the kids to their homework last night and we just got caught” gift.

and the less common, but still important;

  • “My daughter hit who?!” gift.


(I’ve been doing some painting, sorry about the hands).

You can make this box in any size, just make sure one sheet of paper is 1/2″ to 1″ smaller than the other.  This will ensure your lid fits nicely.

 You can dress it up with bows and tags, but the idea is “quick” and “easy” so I stuck to the basics.

I just made a batch of pumpkin muffins, can you tell?

I should have put a small package of kleenex and maybe a Neo Citron in this one – but I had the tea close by. 

This one could be dressed up with some shredded paper in the bottom.

Quick, easy and no one will be the wiser that it’s a “panic gift”.

      So glad you tried! No need to stop – you can fill them with just about anything. Use them to store earrings, or thumbtacks or as little compartments to organize your desk drawers….
      Now I have to go make some! lol
