This post may help you to design your own gift box for party’s and different occiousn. Its easy to design your own gift boxes. Mostly people buy gift boxes from shop and its more expencive. Today’s tutorials show you ways to make your own gift boxes, add that finishing touch to all your hand made holiday gifts.
First cut a piece of 12 X 12 Inches modern paper(heavier paper that manage gift weight) or cardstock to 8 1/2 X 11 Inches. Next lay the paper lengthwise on your score board and scoreat 1/2, 3 1/2, 5 3/4 and 8 3/4 Inches. Flip yourself paper vertical with your score board and sore at 3 and 6 1/2 Inches. Next use a bone folder to pre-fold on the score lines.
With your paper lengthwise, cut slits on the score lines from the bottom to the score line vertical to it, flip your paper and do the same on the bottom. Your paper should be solid in the middle and have flaps on the top and bottom, and look like this.
Cut off the top and bottom pieces on the side with the 1/2 inches flap so just the center on that end is remaining.
For this I had to fold my box in half at one of the score lines and line up and run each handle through the die cutter one at a time. Make sure to fold down all the flaps so that only the piece you want to is cut. It can be a little tricky but I just eyeballed it and mine came out nicely. If you have a punch you could use that too.
Now use your corner rounder to round the corners of the handle. I did this after I cut my handles but you can do this before to make it a bit easier to handle.
Now we can meet the box. On the inside of the box apply scor-tape to the two non handle top flaps, the two opposite flaps on the bottom, and the outside of the 1/2 Inches flap on the side.
Starting with the 1/2″ side flap in the middle remove the liner from the scor-tape and create the box by joining the small flap to the inside of the other end to form the box. You may need to fold the flaps out of the way for convenience. To create the bottom of the box fold in the two flaps without scor-tape first. Then fold remove the liner and fold down one bottom flap with adhesive. Then repeat with the other flap. Now you have a completed box and you are ready to decorate.
You could embellish this lovely little box however you’d like but I’m going to quickly show you how to make your own decorative edge fan fold flower.
