Gift boxes have been used for years as a means of decorating presents. They are particularly useful if you are sending multiple gifts to a person or family as they provide a decorative means of arranging the presents without needing to wrap each one individually. These days gift boxes can be purchased in a number of card shops and supermarkets, however they are usually fairly small and rather flimsy. Here we shop you a simple and easy details of how to make a gift box, so you can provide personalise a box quickly and easily for that special person. The instructions for how to make a gift box, can be used to make a gift box from any cardboard box available and by carefully choosing the wrapping the box can be altered to fit any occasion, including christmas, birthdays, anniversaries etc.
Making a gift box is easy.
All you need is:
A cardboard box of the appropriate size. Tidy up any rough edges and fold in any flaps remaining on the box.
Some wrapping paper, I like using 2 different types with complementary colours but a single colour is also fine.
Some crafting glue (be careful to check how quickly the glue dries)
Some paper sizers (round ended for safety)
Tinsel or similar for decoration
I also find pegs help for holding the paper in place while it sticks.
