- Thin Ribbon (optional)
How To Make Popcorn Boxes Using the Mini Popcorn Box Template
Print the popcorn box template onto your paper (cardstock is best).
If you’re using a printed paper, print onto the back side of the paper.
You can also print one copy of the popcorn box template and then trace it onto your paper.
If you can’t find a printed cardstock you like, you can use patterned paper and glue it onto white cardstock to make it studier. That’s what I did with the one in the center of the main photo with the pink heart pattern.
Cut out the popcorn box template.
Only cut around the solid lines. The dotted lines are for folding.
Fold along the dotted lines on the popcorn box template.
Fold inward so the dotted lines will be on the inside of the popcorn box and not showing on the outside.
Glue the tabs to create the popcorn box shape.
Use hot glue to first glue the tab along the side and then the bottom of the popcorn box.
You can also use other craft glue. I use hot glue because I like things to be dry immediately.
Press on the glue from the outside and inside of the popcorn box to make sure the tabs are touching the box and completely glued down.
Decorate the popcorn box.
You can leave your popcorn boxes just as they are at this point or you can add some fun embellishments to make them even cuter.
Use ribbon, cardstock shapes, felt, craft foam, etc. to decorate your DIY popcorn box.
You’ll want a thinner ribbon for these since they’re small popcorn boxes. A large bow will overtake the popcorn box.
I got my decorations for these at Dollar Tree. The hearts are felt stickers and table scatter.
