Printable Egg Shaped Boxes

Beautiful Easter egg shaped boxes are the perfect alternative to plastic Easter eggs. 

Are you ready to start filling up your easter baskets? It is one of my favorite times of year. The hope of spring right around the corner… and Easter candy is by far the best candy out there!

One of the things I hate though, is those cheap plastic eggs! They never stay closed! And the kids always end up breaking them. 

Last year I stepped on a piece of broken plastic egg hiding in the carpet. Ouch! Cut my foot good.

So this year I am not using any plastic eggs. Better for the environment and better for me! I made some jumbo zipper eggs that hold large Easter surprises, but for smaller items we have the perfect solution! 

We will be filling our baskets with these pretty egg shaped boxes. Aren’t they so much better???

The egg shaped boxes are easy to make out of paper. I used my Silhouette Cameo to make cutting and folding super easy, but you don’t have to use one. You can easily cut them out with a simple pair of scissors.

These Easter egg boxes are also a bit bigger than those plastic eggs. Which is great for filling with all your favorite treats. A bigger box of Cadbury Mini Eggs is fine by me!

Or they are perfect for small toys too! But the best part, you can even make them bigger if needed for larger items.

If using an electronic cutting machine, open the cut file in your software. Set up your file for Print & Cut. Print and cut out the boxes.

If using scissors, print the PDF and cut along the solid lines. Score along the dotted lines for crisp folds.

Fold along all the dotted lines. Fold all the lines towards the back, except the flaps at the top & bottom of the egg.

Glue the tabs on the smaller piece to the larger piece to make a circle.

Step 1 in glueing the printable egg boxes together for Easter.

For the bottom of the egg shaped box, add glue to the tabs and pinch to secure. Repeat all around until it’s closed up.

To close up the top, you can fill the egg shaped box up and glue to the tabs closed. Better to keep people out until Easter!

Or you can make them reusable by punching a hole in the top of each flap.

Punching holes in the top of the egg box to close it up with twine.

Then string a piece of twine or ribbon through the holes and tie to close.

Now all the is left is to fill them up for Easter! These make great eggs for an Easter egg hunt or to hold items in an Easter Basket!
