Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here is a free printable gift box for you to make up. Or for any reason actually. It’s sweet packaging for birthdays, anniversaries or any reason you need to give a little gift!
To make them up, you need:
Scissors or an x-acto knife and cutting mat.
Adhesive. I’ve used double-sided tape and a normal Pritt glue stick and both work well.
Two pieces of A4 card stock per box. I used 200 gsm and it worked splendidly. Print out the PDF template attached below onto your card.
Cut out the template and lightly score along the dotted lines to give yourself a nice crisp edge. A blunt butter knife run does a good job if you do not have a bone folder.
Fold along all the dotted lines.
This is what it looks like from the front at this point.
Then, wrapping the border piece around the heart, use your choice of adhesive to stick the tabs to the heart and opposing border piece as shown.
Repeat for the two bottom pieces to create the point on your heart.
Do this for both pieces and you’re done!
One box is very slightly smaller to allow you to slide one inside the other.
I’ve created the box in three colourways. So you can make one or all of them!
