DIY Gift Box

Hey party people!

It happened again this year. I was in my wrapping present groove, when all of a sudden I realized I didn’t have enough gift boxes. It’s like being in the middle of a recipe to realize you don’t have any cumin. ;p Thankfully, I knew how to DIY my own. And NOW…you will too! Here’s the simple video tutorial for a DIY GIFT BOX…

Supplies: 

Heavy Card Stock (I used a 12×12 piece in this video. You can use any size, just make sure it’s SQUARE!) 

Scissors

Tape

How-To:

Follow the folding and cutting demonstration in the video. This video shows the top of the gift box. To create the bottom of the gift box, just cut your square 1/2 inch around all sides. For the bottom of my gift box, I used an 11.5 inch x 11.5 inch square piece of card stock (since the top was 12×12 inches). You can make it as large or as small you’d like.

Just tape to secure on the inside and out, and your gift box is ready to go. 

What I love about this is you don’t even need to wrap it on top of this. Just use a pretty piece of card stock, add a ribbon, and it’s ready to go.
