Homemade Gift Box Tutorial
I like to gift box my soaps for the holiday season and I thought I would share one of my Homemade Gift Box Tutorial’s with you for the holidays. You can change up the measurements to fit your gift these measurements fit my soap perfectly. Watch the YouTube video below or follow the written tutorial to make your own boxes.
8.5 x 11 card stock
template (if you have one)
Trace out the box using a template or measurements.
Side 1 – Score 3″, 6″, 9″
Side 2 – Score 1.5″, 2.5″, 6″, 7″, 8.5″
Use a ruler to have straight edges.
Score the lines and the points for the hole punch. I use a finger nail polish Dot tool and a ruler to score my lines.
Cut out the box along the outer lines.
Punch the holes in the edges along the punch marks.
Lay out the gift wrapping paper. Use a template or cut out a 9″ x 3.5 rectangle.
Fold along the scored lines
Line up the center edges with the wrapping paper edges.
Glue the paper in place. (the gluing photos turned out blurry.)
Punch the holes in the wrapping paper along the hole punches in the card stock.
Center the gift or soap in the box.
Close the center flaps.
Wrap the ribbon around the center of the box.
Thread the ribbon through the bottom punches.
Thread the ribbon through the top punches.
Tie the bow.
The box is now ready to gift.
