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.
Love it! Thanks for the tutorial!
where is the tutorial???
Great addition to the original with the ribbon.

This is great, thanks for the tutorial link. I have been looking for handmade ways to box my jewelry which is handmade as well. This is great, so cool.
Thank you 🙂

I made one for a friend and she loooved it with a gift I stuck inside – I was in a hurry and just stuck a bow at the top with a glue dot. Glad you said you punched the tabs, will now try that. These are just so fun.

Scribd does not have the template.
Thanks for letting me know! It looks like someone took it down… I will try to make a similar template on my own and share it soon.
