Do you ever wish you had a gift box for any occasion on hand? Today I’m going to show you just how easy it is to create your own gift box. As long as you have some 12×12 cardstock weight paper, and the 1-2-3 Punch board, you’ll be set. Whether it be a Thank you gift, Birthday gift, Get Well Soon gift, or a gift just to brighten someones day, this is the perfect gift box for giving that gift.
The beautiful Jen Hadfield Home + Made Cottage Living Collection is the perfect paper for this project.
Of the goodies I received, I picked out a few things I thought would work well for what I was putting together. If you’d like to make some Simple Gift Boxes yourself, you’ll need (affiliate links):
- Patterned Papers
- Phrase Tags from the Jen Hadfield Home + Made Collection
- Paper Trimmer
- We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board
- Baker’s Twine
Start off by deciding what size of box you want to make, then follow the chart on your punch board, trim your paper to the size needed.
Follow the instructions on the punch board to make your box.
Fold your box on the score lines.
Now you are ready to embellish your box. I cut a strip of paper to wrap around the box.
Use adhesive to attach the paper to your box.
Tie some baker’s twine around your box, over the strip of paper you just attached.
Now it’s time to pick what phrase you want to put on the box. This was the hardest part for me! These Phrase Tags are so much fun. I love that there is something for any occasion in this tag set. I decided to make my box a Thank you box, but you could use any of these cute tags, making this box be useful for any occasion.
Once you have your tag picked out, use the string that is already attached to the tag, to attach it to the top of the box.
Your box is all finished and ready to be given to who ever you have in mind.
The possibilities are endless for these fun boxes. There are so many pretty and fun patterned papers in Home + Made Collection, you’ll be making boxes for days!
