Make Your Own Paper Gift Box
I came across this felt gift box tutorial at Curbly the other day, and I knew I wanted to try making some with card stock.
(Beware, tomorrow I will be sharing a very silly and fun version of these that I made)
I think that you can make this entire gift box in less than a minute.
Go to Curbly and print the free template onto a piece of 8.5 by 11 Card Stock. Cut out the template. (Make sure you cut just inside the lines so that the black line doesn't show up on the box). I used an Exacto knife and a cutting board to cut out the slots. Assemble. I had to fold over the corner of the pieces that go through the slot in order for them to fit. Just fold them back over afterwards.
That's it. You have a cute paper gift box that would be perfect for so many different little gifts, or even a gift card. You can decorate these little things in so many ways (haha, seriously come back tomorrow), but for now I just added a ribbon bow. I punched two small holes, one in each tab, and then I tied on the bow.
