I don’t know about you, but I can never find cupcake box inserts at any of my local stores. Sometimes my Walmart has boxes with the inserts included, but they can get a little pricey, so I figured out a way I could make my own on the cheap.

You can always order these things online, but honestly sometimes, I just don’t think ahead and I need them in a pinch. The great thing about this tutorial is that you can make the inserts to fit any sized cake or cupcake box that you have on hand. Really it’ll work for any type of box you’ve got.

With these inserts, there’s no more worrying about your cupcakes toppling over when you’re traveling. And even if you don’t plan on traveling with them, it’s a handy way to keep your cupcakes covered and fresh. No more plastic wrap messing up your cupcakes!

Okay, since you’ll be using plain poster board, this project is fairly cheap to do AND you can probably get a couple sets out of just one poster board.

Supplies You’ll Need for the DIY Cupcake Box Inserts:

  • Poster Board (any color you want)
  • The box you plan to use (you can use whatever size you want)
  • Round Circle Cutter (you’ll use this to trace around) I used a 2 ½ inch round circle cutter, which is a good size for a standard cupcake. You can grab a circle cutter set here: Circle Cutter Set
  • Exacto Knife
  • Ruler (I used an acrylic ruler because it’s see-through, large and really handy to have.) You can grab one like mine here: Acrylic Ruler
  • Scissors

Making the DIY Cupcake Box Inserts:

First you’ll need to find a box. You can use any box you’ve got. I used a cake/cupcake box I’d bought from Michael’s craft store.

Take your poster board and set the box on top of it. Trace around the box onto the poster board.

Now take your ruler and mark one inch around the line you just traced.

Make sure to do this all the way around.

Now use your ruler to make a straight line where you just marked.

Cut around the outside line.

Cut on that outside line on all four sides.

Cut out each corner.

Take your circle cutter and trace around it as many times as will fit, or for the amount of cupcakes you’re needing to box up.

Take your exacto knife and cut slits into each circle. I cut mine like a pie.

Take the ends of your insert and fold them in along that inside line you made when you traced around the box.

Now, fold back the areas you cut in each circle.

Turn it over and make sure everything looks good and that it’s not folded too wonky.

Now, just add it to your box. It’ll be snug, but you’ll need to push down the corners of your insert, down into the box.

I like to go ahead and add my cupcakes before icing them.

How to create DIY individual cupcake boxes

Are cupcakes your passion and are you looking for the right packaging to increase the value of your creations and start selling them? In this blog post I will shortly explain how to create DIY individual cupcake boxes in a quick and simple way.

Firstly you have to define the internal dimensions of your package. Once muffins, toppers and design are ready you can measure the final sizes of your product. Being do it yourself products they are slightly different from each other, for that reason I suggest measuring various cupcakes. In this way you can find the right sizes to contain all your sweets, regardless of slight variations.

Once set the dimensions, you might choose the shape of your DIY individual cupcake boxes. Packly offers a selection of basic models that could be easily customized both in sizes and graphic design to create bespoke packagings. Once chosen the box type, you only have to enter the internal dimensions previously defined, choose the material depending on the cupcake weight and you are done. The online application will automatically generate the dieline of your bespoke cupcake carrier in real time and you might download it as vector PDF. The die-cut template is the cut and fold 2D drawings of the box and it is essential to create your graphic project.
