3D Coffee Cup Paper Gift Box Tutorial!

Hi everyone! I have a really fun tutorial for you this week! Now that it’s October, pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolates are everywhere. I’m always trying to think up fun gift box ideas, and I got thinking, why not create a 3D paper coffee cup gift box design!

Click the image below to watch the video tutorial:


I think these turned out so cute and fun! It’s one of my favorite gift boxes I’ve designed so far! Put a coffee shop gift card inside, and it makes the perfect gift for coffee lovers (or hot chocolate lovers)! This would also make a great gift for a teacher who loves coffee.


  • Card stock or other heavy paper in 3 colors (you’ll want to use heavy paper for this)
  • Hot glue (you can always try other types of glue, but you’ll need something with a very strong, quick hold)
  • Score tool (or an old pen that no longer writes)
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

As you are assembling the box, be sure to “stretch” the sides around the bottom of the cup as much as you can, everything needs to fit tightly together.
