EASY DIY GIFT BOX MADE USING ONE SHEET OF PAPER.

Hi, we're kicking off the week with this super easy diy gift box that can be made using a single sheet of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper or cardstock,

By now you may have noticed that I love making my own gift boxes. This box is a bit bigger than the ones I've made in the past. It measures 6 x 2½ x 3 inches and I think it'd be great for holding chocolates, small candles or even some posh biscuits. I love that a handmade gift box can really dress up a simple present and turn it into something extra special.

With a little practice you should be able to make one of these in around 10 minutes. Perfect for those last minute gift giving emergencies.

1. Using either a scoreboard and bone folder or an embossing tool and a ruler score lines at 3 inches and 9 inches.

2. Rotate your paper 90 degrees and score lines at 1 in, 3½ in, 6½ in and 9 inches.

3. With the 1 inch scoreline at the top cut along the 3½ in scoreline down to the 3rd scoreline (6½ in mark) and cut down the 9 in scoreline to the 3rd scoreline as well.

4. From the bottom cut along the 3 and 9 in mark this time only to the 1st scoreline.

5. Next cut off the corner tabs. You can see the tabs you need to cut off in the photo in the top right corner.

6. Fold along all the scorelines.

7. Stick the box together using some double sided tape or paper glue making sure to fold the smaller side tabs on the inside.

8. To close your box you can either fold the lid inside or seal it on the outside with a sticker like I did.

I love this stripey cardstock so much I nearly didn't use it. It's the same one I used to make my diy paper picture frames last week. Sometimes I find it so hard not to hoard my supplies. When I find a pattern or design I love the last thing I want to do is cut into it! I want to keep it in pristine condition locked away in a drawer. Sadly I've lost quite a few craft supplies by holding onto them for far too long. I've had inks and pens that have dried out and washi tape that I can't peel anymore so I'm trying to do better and actually use them. Does anyone else have this problem? It's definitely something I need to work on.
