After many hours of searching the web for the perfect printable template for a Honeyduke's Chocolate Frog box, the web seemed to come up short. I ended up downloading what appeared to be a scan of a used box (crease lines and all) and modifying it heavily in Photoshop myself. I'm providing that edited template along with a star pattern I created for the inside of the box in a zip file with this tutorial. You'll need to download it and extract the files before you continue.

Also, make sure you have the following:

  1. Scissors
  2. Permanent double sided tape
  3. Heavy card stock paper
  4. A printer

If you're interested in making the Chocolate Frog cards as well, you can view those instructions here!

Step 1: Print the Template

The first thing you'll need to do is print the images from the zip file onto a sheet of card stock paper. Print the front of the box on one side, flip the paper over, put it back in the printer, and print the star pattern on the other side.

Step 2: Cut the Template Out

Next, cut out the template. Follow the lines as closely as you can, making sure to not leave any white around the edges. There are small tabs that you can safely cut off. Refer to the images above.

Step 3: Fold and Crease

Now you'll want to fold the flaps and make creases in the bottom side of the box. You will basically want to fold and crease the box everywhere you see the borders with the small circle patterns. Refer to the images for reference.

Step 4: Apply Double Sided Tape

Apply strips of double sided tape around the inside of the box as shown in the images above. You'll want to add small pieces of tape to the little triangle folds in the corners of the box as well, and a couple of thin strips to the top of the box.

Step 5: Fold Again

Fold in the small triangular corners and crease them. You will want to push them against the edges of the double sided tape you applied to the inside of the box and then pinch them so that the smaller pieces of tape you applied to the corners hold them closed (See the first and second image above).

Once that's done, fold the flaps down on all four sides of the box and pinch them against the strips of double sided tape.

Now pull the edge of the top of the box, where you applied tape, under the other side. Line up the word "Frog" and line up the circle pattern at the bottom, then pinch along the overlap to get the tape to stick.

Once you have finished this, close the box.

Step 6: You're Finished!

You're all done!

This was kind of difficult to explain with all the folding, creasing, and taping. I Hope the images help!

<p>Hey, These are so great! Would you do cards for Harry, Hermione, and Ron? My kids would really love those.</p>
<p>Made 100 of these as wedding favors. Everyone LOVED them!</p>
<p>hi, this is amazing! I was just wondering if we could use a glue stick instead of double sided tape?</p>
<p>I made this too and they look so so so awesome! I'll post some pictures soon. I found that the lid wasn't very tight for my first few. What I ended up doing was only folding the two lid tabs on the sides and leaving the others unbent. I found that this provided just enough friction to keep the lid closed on its own. I'm also using a heavy card stock. </p>
Hi, I'm on my third trial box and no matter what I do I can't get the top to fit the bottom of the box. I did see your comment about the dots bordering the top and bottom of the sides but no matter how I fold it, it makes no difference. Any suggestions? I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
<p>Sorry to hear you're having trouble. From your photo, it looks like the corners of the box are a bit loose. Try folding them in tighter so the sides of the box aren't 100% vertical. They should be at a very slight inward angle. Does this make sense?</p>
<p>I'll give it a whirl. I'm determined to make this work. Thanks for the reply!</p>
<p>This is so great! Thank you for sharing and putting in all of that hard work! It will definitely be great for my daughter's Harry Potter birthday party!</p>
<p>Wonderful! Thanks! Glad you like it!</p>
<p><em>I made it and it is AWESOME</em></p>
<p>Amazing! I made it and it turned out awesome</p>
<p>Heewy,</p><p>It can be that my question is already answered and I didn't see it, but on what size of paper is the template printed? A3 or A4?</p>
<p>I printed it on 8.5 x 11 inch card stock, but it should print fine on A4 as well.</p>
The template for the box is gorgeous! One of my favorites of the many I've seen. My only qualm (and it may most likely be operator error) is the dimensions of the box didn't quite match up with the lid once folded and taped. Is this an issue you ran into while folding?
<p>Thanks! Actually, I did have that problem the first few boxes I made <br>and then I realized I was folding it slightly wrong. The borders with <br>the little circles on it should line the top and bottom of the sides of the box <br>when you're finished, if that makes sense.</p>
<p>Hi! What do you mean by 'heavy' cardstock? My country doesn't have cardstock so I'll have to find regular paper that weighs the right amount. Do you think 180 grams (0,4 pounds) will work? Loved this Instructable!</p>
I'm not sure, but I think that weight would work. To be safe, you could order some heavy card stock online.
<p>cool!</p>
<p>Thank you for this! My son loves Harry Potter<br>movies and will definitely love this - I just need to make a chocolate frog to<br>put inside the box :)</p>
<p>I'm glad this will contribute to something fun with your son!</p>
bravo!
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>This is so cool! I need to print and make a few. Excellent work, than you for sharing this.</p>
<p>Thanks! I just added how to make the chocolate frog cards to go inside the boxes if you're interested: </p><p>https://www.instructables.com/id/Honeydukes-Chocolate-Frog-Cards/</p>
cool! now get a chocolate frog to put in i. ?
<p>Actually, I am planning on making some chocolate frogs to go in these boxes at some point!</p>
stupid key pad! I love this instructable you got my vote!
<p>Thanks!</p>
