I needed a quick 'thinking of you' gift box.
This is such an adorable pattern, and it only takes a few minutes from start to finish!
Gift Box Pattern (picture and instructions below)
8.5x11 piece of paper
tape or glue
stylus (or mechanical pencil)
Print out a copy of the gift box pattern found below:
Again, I still haven't figured out how to attach a PDF file,
but you can copy this picture and paste it in Microsoft Word.
Re-size it to fill the page, and you'll have a digital copy.
Next, cut out the circles. Use a stylus (or the tip of a mechanical pencil) to trace the dotted lines.
This will imprint the paper enough for you to fold on the dotted lines.
Start in the middle, and work your way out.
Once all my creases were made, I decorated the edges with some markers
(these are also ADORABLE if you use colored/printed paper),
but I already had a copy made on white...
Then you can start folding it up:
Be sure and secure 3 sides with tape or glue
You will obviously leave one side open,
So you can fill it with the goods:
Then you can close it up,
and tie on some matching ribbon...
And you have the perfect little gift box! Love it!
