This year seems to be flying past so fast, I can’t quite wrap my head around it.
One minute it is January and long lazy days of summer holidays, the next it is the end of March, and Easter is just around the corner.
But with two weeks school holidays, hot cross buns and a little extra chocolate, there is a lot to be happy about when it comes to Easter!
We’ve been getting into the spirit a little early with a bit of Easter craft. We had fun creating some Easter designs and making these cute print and fold Easter boxes.
These little boxes are easy to fold and perfect for a little Easter treat or two.
We try not to go too crazy with chocolate and sweet treats, so these would be great for wrapping small, non-chocolate gifts as part of an Easter hunt.
You could fill them with:
- hair accesories
- a match box car
- plastic animals
- a bouncy ball
- silly putty or slime
- lip gloss
We’ve had lots of fun filling ours with little coloured chicks!
The boxes come in three sizes – small, medium and large.
You can download the small print and fold Easter box here.
You can download the medium print and fold Easter box here.
You can download the large print and fold Easter box here.
All of the Easter boxes are A4 sized pdf files. If you are printing on US letter sized paper make sure you choose ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer settings.
You need to be able to print on the front and back of your paper to use the template and designs.
We used matte photo paper to print our boxes but they work just as well (and are easier to fold) if you use plain printer paper.
To fold them follow the same instructions as for the Christmas boxes:
Once you learn how to make these little boxes you won’t be able to stop!

I forgot you’d done this! We made these boxes yesterday out of square scrapbook paper as 2 of our neighbours and I got together and did a baking day with our kids then delivered the goodies in these boxes to our neighbours surrounding us!
If only I’d seen your post because this is MUCH better instructions than the origami site I found! I’m pinning this for future reference Kate! Cheers!
You are absolutely right. I ‘m not able to stop producing the boxes. It is so easy and I enjoy folding them with my daughter. Thank you so much.
