In this blog post, we will show you how to make custom bakery boxes at home using simple materials you likely already have in your kitchen. From there, it’s just a matter of following our simple steps and you will have yourself some pretty sweet treats in no time!
What You’ll Need
In order to make your own bakery boxes at home, you will need:
-Cardboard or other sturdy paper box
-Craft knife or a sharp cutting board
-Ruler or measuring tape
-Paint or other crafting supplies
-Decorative papers of your choice (optional)
1. Begin by cutting out a pattern for the bakery box on your cardboard or other sturdy paper. Be sure to account for the thickness of the cardboard before cutting out your shape. The pattern should be large enough to cover most of the bottom of the box, but not so large that it takes up too much space on the page. If you’re using a ruler and cutting templates, be sure to keep 1/4 inch margins all around so that you can easily trim them down later.
2. Using your craft knife or a sharp cutting board, carefully cut out your pattern from the cardboard. Try not to cut into the edges of the template; this will result in a sloppy finish on your box.
3. Once you’ve cut out your templates, it’s time to start painting! Choose one of your templates to begin with and paint it with whatever color you’d like – I used pink for my example box above. Make sure to leave ample room around the edges of the template so that you can easily trim them down later without messing up the paint job.
4. Once all of your templates have been painted and trimmed, it’s time
How to Make the Boxes
If you’ve ever shopped for bakery boxes, you know they can be expensive and sometimes hard to come by. With a little bit of homemade creativity, you can make your own boxes at home for a fraction of the cost. Here are three easy ways to make custom bakery boxes:
1. Make Custom Candy Boxes
Candy is a popular item to include in bakery boxes, so why not make your own candy boxes? Follow these simple steps to create custom candy boxes:
1) Print out your desired box template onto cardstock or paper. Be sure to print in portrait mode so that the box will fit correctly inside the wrapper.
2) Cut out each piece of the template with a scissors. Use a ruler and pencil to trace around the edges of each piece, then cut them out. You’ll need four pieces total: one top front piece, one top back piece, one bottom front piece, and one bottom back piece.
3) Next, use a hot glue gun or adhesive strip to attach the top front and top back pieces together. Do the same thing with the bottom front and bottom back pieces, making sure that they’re aligned properly. Finally, attach the sides together by gluing them along the curved edge (make sure that both ends are glued). Let the glue dry completely before using your new box!
4) To fill your new candy box, place all of your desired candies inside and enjoy!
Tips for Making Custom Bakery Boxes
If you’re someone who loves baking but hates the hassle of making custom boxes every time you need one, then this guide is for you! By following these tips, you’ll be able to make your own bakery boxes at home with relative ease.
1. Get a standard cutter or ruler: This is obviously the most important step, and without it you won’t be able to make any accurate measurements. You can find a standard cutter or ruler in most stores, or even online.
2. Decide how many boxes you want to make: The more boxes you make, the less time and effort you’ll have to spend later on. However, if you only need a few boxes, then it may be easier just to buy them instead of making them yourself.
3. Get ready to measure: Now that you have your cutter or ruler, it’s time to start measuring out your box shapes. First measure the length of your cake (not including the edges), then divide that number by 2 and round up to the nearest inch. Next measure the width of your cake (not including the edges), then divide that number by 2 and round up to the nearest inch. Finally, add 1/4 inch all around for seam allowances (this will allow for expansion and contraction during baking).
4. Choose your fabric: Now that you know how wide and long your boxes will be, it’s time to decide on your fabric choice! There are plenty of
