These free printable Christmas candy box wrappers are a fun little DIY gift for the holidays. Tie a bottle brush tree on top with ribbon or twine for the perfect finishing touch.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy little Christmas gift for your kids to give to their friends or to hand out to your students or neighborhood kids, these free printable Christmas cars are sized perfectly to fit around a theater box of candy. The cute car is on the front and it says, “Merry Christmas” on the back. Tie a bottle brush tree on top with a bit of bakers twine and you’ve got a darling Christmas gift. And the best part is that you can make a whole bunch in just a matter of minutes.
- Free Printable (Download at the bottom of this post)
- White Cardstock
- Ribbon, String or Bakers Twine
- Bottle Brush Trees
Step 1: Download the files below. There’s a red car and a green car. Load your printer with white cardstock, open the files on your computer, then send them to print. They will look like this:
Step 2: The arrows on the outside of the usable area are to help you score fold lines in the correct places. Line up a ruler with the arrows, then use a bone tool or knitting needle to make a gentle depression (score line) in the paper.
Scoring helps you get super crisp fold lines. You can totally skip this step and just wrap the paper around the box, but I think it makes the finished product look more clean.
Step 3: Cut along the solid gray lines using scissors or a paper trimmer.
Step 4: Fold down all the score lines, then wrap the paper around the candy box and secure with double sided tape on the bottom where the two flaps overlap.
Step 5: Tie a bottle brush tree on top using ribbon or twine.
And that’s it! Done-zo! Aren’t they sooooooo cute? I love them so much and I think my kids’ friends will be thrilled to receive them. Hurray for easy + cute + yummy Christmas gifts!
