Hello again, it’s Adelle on behalf of Get Away Today! Do your kids love jelly beans? What about Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans? I know all things Harry Potter are super popular on ‘Or so she says…’ so today I’m sharing a DIY for making your own Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans Box.
Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans DIY Box
With this free printable, you can fold your own Harry Potter Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans Box. Perfect for a family movie night, Harry Potter-themed party or maybe even Valentine’s Day.
I wanted to create a Harry Potter candy treat that could be easily made for parties at school and would also work for little Harry Potter gatherings too! One of my favorite treats from Hogwarts is Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans. I am not sure if I would actually eat them because even eating Jelly Belly candies is a little bit of a risk for me!
Bertie Botts Every Flavor Bean DIY Box Supplies:
- Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans Box Template
- Double Sided Tape or a Glue Stick
- Jelly Belly Candy for Filler
Start by downloading the cute template here. You will want to print the template on a heavy cardstock paper. The firm paper makes the Every Flavor Beans Box sturdy; you don’t want to spill the beans! Each template makes one box, so print as many as you need and use color ink for the best results.
Cut around the outside of the entire template. Take your time to make straight cuts.

Lay the Every Flavor Beans template so that the printed side is facing down onto a table. Fold on each of the lines. You will fold everything up away from the table. Crease the lines with your finger so the fold stays in place. There are little tabs and then the big lines between all of the rectangle boxes. You will make 12 folds in all.
Notice here are green tabs that have the word “glue” printed onto them. Those are the tabs that you will use to create the box shape. I decided to use double sided tape instead of a glue stick because it has a very short drying period. Zero seconds! But, a glue stick would totally work for this step as well.
Place the tape or glue on the green tabs and then line the tab up with the connecting piece of the template. It’s pretty easy! You can use a pencil with an eraser to poke into the inside of the box to help secure the tabs in place.
The top tab folds and tucks into place so it can be opened and closed easily. You need to have access to the candy so do not secure this tab with tape or glue.
Fill the Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans Box with Jelly Belly beans.
These jelly beans have over 30 flavors. I ordered a huge bin of the Jelly Belly jelly beans off of Amazon, but I’ve seen them at Costco sometimes, too. You could fill at least 30 boxes with this container of candy.
If you are handing them out to rowdy kids, I would use a little square of tape to secure the opening flap in place just so they don’t spill the beans on the way home from school. Folding this simple candy box could even be part of the a class party if the kids are 8 year or older. Have fun!
