DIY: Gift Box
Learn how to make the DIY: Gift Box featured in our November 2015 issue! They make for impressive gift toppers – and they can double as ornaments, too. Here’s how to make it:
You’ll need the template, one 81⁄2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock, ribbon, scissors, hole punch.
Step 1: Print the downloadable template on an 81⁄2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.
Step 2: Cut along the solid outside lines, then use the tip of your scissors or a sharp pencil to carefully score along the dotted inside lines. Don’t cut all the way through the paper!
Step 3: Punch a hole at the tip of each triangle. Fold along the scored lines, then use a short piece of thin ribbon to hold the pieces together.
