I decided that today Id like to share with you a tutorial on how to make a little Gift box.
And it just so happens that tomorrow is my friend Jennifer’s Birthday lunch, and I need a little box to put her gift in , so I thought that this might a perfect time to share with you a cool little crafty idea and show you how to make a gift box using a Card………
Step 1: Gathering supplies
We will need a card “Duh”, pencil & ruler, scissors and double side sticky tape.
“I purchased my little card from Dave’s discounts a local discount store and I picked a card with no wording inside. Mind you a card with a little verse inside would be nice as well, this would also be a perfect way to use some of those birthday/ xmas cards we can’t seem to throw away.”
Step 2: The cutting
We need to cut our card in half, so we have a top and a bottom. On our bottom piece “which would have been our back” we need to take a smidge off the top & side, 1/8 inch will do nicely….
We only do this to the bottom piece so that the top will fit snugly .
Kinda like two peas in pod.
Step 3: The measuring, cutting and folding.
Using our pencil and ruler, I measured & marked a 3/4 inch line on all edges of both pieces.
Then I ran my scissors (without cutting) down each line, that scores the lines and make’s it easier to fold .
Now on the short edge we make our cuts. Use photo as a cutting guide.
In all you should only have 4 cuts on each piece. After cutting our corner’s we then fold along our lines..
Excited yet………I know I was!
Step 4: The finishing touches.
I then need to cut a little piece of double sided sticky for the 4 corners on each .
At this point, the box should come together very nicely.
Step 5: Place the special gift inside.
I can’t show you what’s inside just yet, I don’t want to spoil the surprise…..
And before I disappear, remember my cute as a button bead from my last post……….
Well It’s now a ring…
