How To Cut Your Honeycomb Treat Box
Begin by downloading the cut files needed for this Honeycomb Treat Box here. Then, upload to your design software that is compatible with your die cutting machine. You will need to set up the score lines so that they score instead of cut. If you don’t know how to do this, have no fear! I have created videos down below – one for Cricut users and another for Silhouette users – showing you exactly how I set up the project with the score lines. I promise it is not as hard as you think!

Video Tutorial: How To Assemble Your Honeycomb Treat Box
Below you will find a step-by-step video of me assembling the box. If you’re a little bit more visual, this video could be a big help!
Once you’ve finished cutting out all of the pieces, organize them by size.
Begin with the bee shapes. There are three different layers to it: the white one goes on the bottom, followed by the yellow, then the black goes on top.
Since the bee is so intricate, I recommend using a pen-tip liquid glue. Glue all the bee’s layers together (as mentioned in the order above).
Move onto the treat box pieces. The large black piece will the base of the box. The white piece is the treat box’s cover. The yellow piece goes under the white lid, giving the honeycomb’s colorful detailing.
Fold the pieces around the white and black pieces. It is best to use a bone folder to get clean edges.
Now, it’s time to glue! Begin with your white piece and use your crafters glue to glue all the long tabs along the cover’s edge You will also add glue to each of the triangular tabs. Finally you will glue the yellow/orange piece in the center.
To secure everything together, take one triangular tab and attach it to its adjacent piece to the left. Next fold down the longer pieces to start creating the box top’s edge. Continue along the entire piece.
Repeat the same steps for scoring/folding and gluing and attaching for the black piece.
Once the box top and base are assembled, glue the bee anywhere you want on the box top.
Fill with your gift of choice and present it to a loved one!
