Christmas gift boxes

by - Monday, December 23, 2013


For a couple of Christmas presents I have bought this year, I needed to put them in a gift box as they were to fragile to just wrap up in paper.

These presents aren't very big and so didn't need large gift boxes, so I wasn't going to hunt out small gift boxes in the shops, I decided I would make them.


I found the tutorials on Chicnscratches 12 days of Christmas videos that Angie has made recently and they are perfect size for the presents.

The first box is made using this tutorial from Chicnscratch. I decided to make it with white card and then use some pretty patterned paper from Doodlebug as a layer.

On top I made a bow using the envelope punch board and this tutorial from Knall crafting.

I made a little tag from the Clearly Besotted tag it dies and punched out a little tree.



The second box, I used this tutorial from Chicnscratch. 

I decided to make it with the Doodlebug Home for the holidays papers, tied it with some green gross-grain ribbon and a tag the same as the previous box. Love the papers on this box, so cute!



I won't show the gifts that are in the boxes are the recipient might read this but I just wrapped the gifts in some lovely red spotty tissue paper.


I have finished wrapping all the presents and am so glad. If I haven't got it or done it now it, we will have to do without! I'm 37 weeks pregnant and trying to entertain a 5 year old in the holidays, so I'll be glad to have a rest.

Hope you have a lovely Christmas. See you soon.
