Today’s project is a Mug Cake Gift Box featuring products from the Peaceful Place Suite! This would make a great teacher gift!
This gift box is sized to fit either a Betty Crocker Mug Treat or a Duncan Hines Mug Cake (without the frosting packet)! It will also fit 2 Rip Van Wafels too! Here’s a closer look:
You could easily tuck a gift card inside this box! Here’s another view:
And here’s how the box opens:
I’ve added a Velcro closure to it, but you could also have a magnet or ribbon closure as well! I just love the neutral feel of the Peaceful Place Suite! The white, gray, and silver are all beautiful together making this a perfect project for the Winter or Christmas!
Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:
And here’s the template for reference (not to scale):

Julie, I am loving your boxes and the information is easy to make reference sheets with. Do you have a program for your templates? I like the clean and simple look of it and would like to do that for other boxes I have made?
Hi Kristin! I create my templates using Adobe Illustrator.
I love this packaging Julie, I posted a picture on FB. I would love to hear from others what they would put inside.
I can imagine this cute little box holding all kinds of goodies – and not just for Christmas. You’re very clear on your instructions which is wonderful. Thank you!

Good morning….was always able to save your videos to my Pinterest board…but I’m unable to do this one….am I missing something…I don’t see a P sign anywhere…..thanks for all you do……Cathy
Hi Cathy! There’s a Pinterest button at the very bottom of this post where it says “Love it? Share, save, or print it!” Hope that helps!
I too am having no success at getting a message saying “Love it? Share, save, or print it!” at the bottom of your post by the Pinterest icon.
Hi Dee! It’s at the very bottom of the post just after the shop button and just before the comments section. I can see it on both mobile and desktop.
I love the mug box. But when I went to the store I bought tge wrong mix . I didn’t realize it until after I made my first box.
I wanted you to know I got it to work by changing the paper size fron 7 x 11 to 8 x 11 keeping the the other dimensions the same. I have a picture if I can figure how to post it
Love your post and you tube
Thanks for all you do.
God bless you and your family
