This is even easier, because I just used the front of the Christmas card…
Turn this year's Christmas cards into next year's gift box…come on in and see how easy.
Store your Christmas cards in a box, so they are always handy for a quick project.
Any size and design will work, because the box is rolled into a tube.
Just cut the front of the card from the back.
Roll into tube and hot glue together.
Now squeeze the top opening, so that it's flat from right to left and glue together.
Next, you will add your little gift, trinket or present inside before gluing the box shut.
Once filled, take the bottom opening and squeeze front to back…hot glue together.
Done!! The shape is formed by gluing the openings closed in opposite directions.
If you want to have a hang tag for your gift box, just punch a hole at the top.
You can also make this box reusable if you only glue the bottom section and have the ribbon close the top for easy access (instead of gluing the top).
Add a pretty ribbon.
You can use these little boxes for so many things…
- gift cards
- advent calendars
Here is the link to the previous post, click HERE. You will make 25 different boxes and add numbers for an advent calendar.
Just hang them all from a ribbon to make a garland of advent boxes. The kids will just untie one box each day for a little treat inside.
Again, if you want this to be reusable, only glue the bottom and the ribbon on the top will keep it closed.
You can also use other occasion cards too. Fun with birthday cards, Valentine's Day etc.
Hope you like this one!!
