After searching for hours for just the perfect gift or lovingly making one, sometimes the wrapping has to be special too.
Not only are handmade boxes fun, but easy to make and so customizable. Simply choose paper that matches the mood of the gift or the personality of the recipient.
To make a 7x7x2 1/2 inch box you will need:
2 pieces of 12x12 card stock
1 piece of decorative 12x12 paper
Double stick tape
Ribbon or other embellishments.
Trim one piece of card stock by 1/4 of an inch. This way the bottom part fits smoothly into the top.
Then, using a ruler and dull point make a crease 2 1/2 inches from the edge along all four sides.
Tape the decorative paper to the other piece of card stock and crease as above.
Next, make a diagonal crease in each corner.
Fold the tips in and tape them to the sides.
(opt) Finish by tying the outside corners of the box with matching dmc floss. Tie with ribbon, add a gift tag and voila, you're done! Works for me!
