Free, custom templates.
Custum sized papercraft and packaging templates for free 😁. You don‘t even need to make an account to start
using these free printables straight away.✂︎
This site offers an unlimited amount of templates (also knows as ’dielines‘ or ‘nets’) for paper craft, packaging,
package design, learning materials, decoration and much more.
All the models are custom sized. Usually, that includes the length, width and height of an object. Some models
also have some angles you can customise or a number of facets.
A typical paper bag that can be stored completely flat. This template can be used to create both a slick little goodie bag or a large grocery bag. This design is also used a lot for gift wrapping wine bottles. The top of the bag is folded for reinforcement. Do not use paper or cardstock that is too heavy as it will make it more difficult to fold the template.
Print template for box with lid, for example a shoebox or a board game box. Length, Width and Height are all inner dimensions. This template is economical for rather shallow boxes. If the box is tall, use the card box instead.
The most common box. A long, thin box. Suitable for chocolate cigaretes, playing cards, etc. The default dimensions are fine for a set of standard, European, playing cards (“bridge size”).
Coffin or Casket shaped box for Halloween, decoration or maybe for a deceased pet. Do you want to serve your ‘trick or treat candy‘ in style? Present the candy in a coffin! This design consists of a box and a lid. Use some extra scotch tape to secure the lid to box, or it might open at midnight… allowing the content to wander around your house. Mwhahahaha!
A cone, optionally with the top cut off. (In that case, it’s called a frustum). Can be used to help create the geometry for a beaker, vase, party-hat or lamp shade. If you'd like a real cone, just use zero for the top-diameter. Tip: do not score or fold the fold line this template to keep seam smooth.
An elliptical or oval box. The template consists of 4 parts and comes with a paper jig that can be used to assemble the box in a neat way. The top and bottom parts are duplicated in the template. When they are cut out you are left with the jig plus 2 tops and 2 bottoms. You can destroy the spare top and bottom. The jig will need to be folded, as shown in the diagram.
A box consisting of a tray and a lid. The sides of the tray are not glued, but kept together by the lid. Once the lid is removed, the box ‘explodes’ as the sides fall outward.
Gem Stone Box
Gem stone shaped box, consisting of two identical polygonal pyramids, glued together bottom to bottom. It‘s a real box that can used for packaging. It can be stored (and shipped)completely flat. When you pull the two apices apart, the box will get it‘s full shape. It‘s easiest to glue this shape when both halves are flat. Just fold the glue tabs all the way in an glue the top to the bottom. Just remember not to glue the rounded flaps.
A typical, straight-forward gift box. This box is very similar to the Card Box, but the layout is different. This template makes most efficient use of your sheet of paper if the dimensions are close to eachother. Templatemaker will try to correct impossible values automatically. Be aware of this if, for example, the thumbhole is smaller then you expect.
The mailer is an extra thick envelop that can be used to pack items that are flat, but thicker then just a sheet of paper. It can hold, for example, a pile of cards of a bag of flower seeds. Use a piece of sticky tape to keep the cover in place.
A simple Tray and Sleeve Box. The dimensions are inner dimensions. The clearence is added twice and to both height and the width. The tray can be assembled without glue, although a little glue won‘t hurt, ofcourse.
Tube, cylinder, toilet roll core, regular polygon based prism. Optionally ‘mitered‘ or truncated at an angle. With default settings, this template gives standard toilet roll. You can also choose to have a ‘mitered’ cylinder, with different miter-angles for the top and the bottom and with a twist between these two. Use these settings if you need to create tubes that are welded (or glued) together at an angle. If you choose 12 segments or less, fold lines are drawn along the length of the cylinder and glue tabs are placed on the top and bottom.
Multi Sheet Box
How annoying that a sheet the size of an A4 or a Letter is so small, isn‘t it? This template allows you to construct much larger boxes by using 6 separate sheets. It takes a bit more glue but you can make a much more impressive box! Use some sturdy material. You might use scavange some old cereals boxes or pizza boxes. Be aware that your desktop printer might need some ”convincing” to accept these.
A three-dimensional figure formed by six parallelograms. Imagine a regular box that is slanted in three directions. You can also use this template to create a simple brick shape or a dice (cube). In that case, just keep the angles at 90º.
Passepartout, Photo Frame or Shadow Box. Glue-less, hollow, double-walled tray. Create a photo frame for your photo‘s with a posh, wide and deep frame. Enter the dimension of the “inner space“ (the size of the picture or object to display), together with how thick and wide you‘d like the border of the frame to be. The eventual model will be larger, because of the width of border of the frame. The model can be constructed without using glue, although a bit of glue won‘t hurt.
A simple, economic yet charming shape for packing items like vouchers, jewelry or clothing. Do not make the pillow pack too thick, or the paper will tear when you fold the ends﹕ keep the width at least twice as long as the height. Once folded, the widht and length will be slightly smaller then the values entered because of the curves of the cardboard.
The Platonic Solids
All five so-called Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids are the five regular convex polyhedra. The Cube is the most famous one, of course, although he likes to be called “hexahedron” among friends. Also the other platonic solids are named after the number of faces (or hedra) they have. I.e. Tetrahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron. (Now you know how to count in classical Greek, too!) There is only parameter：the diameter of the midsphere. The midsphere is the sphere from the center of the object that touches all the edges exactly in middle.
Tube-shaped (or prismatic), polygonal box with gusseted, integrated lid. This box is very decorative and ideal for gift wrapping odd-shaped presents. The lid uses both mountain and valleys folds. The glue tabs on the bottom fit together precisly. The lid will fold easier if you remove some material from the place where the five fold lines meet. (The model does not work for 3 or less sides)
A box in the shape of a pyramid. The base of the shapes functions as the lid, so to open it, you would hold it upside down. (The default values yield a pyramid in the same ratio as the Cheops pyramid)

Rhombus Shaped Box with Lid
Rhombus (lozenge, or lop sided), prismatic box with lid. The box consist of a base and a lid. The dimensions are given for the base. The lid will be scaled with the given percentage (clearance).
A round, cylindrical box. The template consists of 4 parts and comes with a paper jig that can be used to assemble the box in a neat way. The top and bottom parts are duplicated in the template. When they are cut out you are left with the jig plus 2 tops and 2 bottoms. You can destroy the spare top and bottom. The jig will need to be folded, as shown in the diagram.
Collection of the 7 concave polycubes with 4 or less cubes. These seven pieces together can form the SOMA cube. That is, if you manage to solve the puzzle. The SOMA cube was invented by the Danish mathematician and poet Piet Hein.
Star-shape with arbitrary thickness and number of points. Depending on the dimensions,
you'll either get one pyramid-like shape for every point of
the star, or flatters (pancake-like shapes) for either side of the star. The
latter is the quickest and easiest way, but thin stars with long points look the best.
To obtain this one: use a large height, large inner radius and a low amount of points.
The given parameters will work for this.
Star Shaped Box
Have you ever dreamed of just sprinkling stars? ✨Now you can, and you can even hide a present in them! The folds are a bit origami-like, score them well and make sure the star is reasonably thick. “5“ Is indeed the ideal number of points, but fewer or more is certainly possible. Shine!
Also called a trapezoidal prism or a trapezoidagon (just to sound impressive). One typical use for this model is packing pralines. It can be the basis for many shapes, as long as the top and bottom are paralel and oposing sides have equal draft angles. If you use yellow or gold paper, you can use it to make paper ‘gold bars’. (Or gold pressed latinum, if you prefer.)
