Christmas lidded gift boxes – video tutorial

Hello!

One of the best parts of being a paper crafter is being able to make pretty packages for gifts. And what better time than Christmas for gift giving in gorgous boxes like this one…

This box is 2 inches high and 3-1/2″ square. In this video, I make a smaller one….

The finished size of the smaller box is 1-1/2″ high and 3″ square and is the perfect size to fit in 8 tea lights…

To make these boxes you’ll need the following:

The larger box

  • Cherry Cobbler card measuring 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ scored at 2″ on all 4 sides, for the base
  • Cherry Cobbler card measuring 5-1/16″ x 5-1/16″ scored at 3/4″ on all 4 sides, for the lid
  • Tidings of Christmas designer series paper
    • 4 pieces measuring 1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
    • 4 pieces measuring 1/2″ x 3-1/4″
    • 1 piece measuring 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Scraps of Cherry Cobbler for the flowers
  • Scrap of Basic White Thick card and DSP for the tag

The smaller box

  • Cherry Cobbler card measuring 6″ x 6″ scored at 1-1/2″ on all 4 sides, for the base
  • Cherry Cobbler card measuring 4-9/16″ x 4-9/16″ scored at 3/4″ on all 4 sides, for the lid
  • Tidings of Christmas designer series paper
    • 4 pieces measuring 1-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
    • 4 pieces measuring 1/2″ x 2-3/4″
    • 1 piece measuring 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Scraps of Cherry Cobbler for the flowers
  • Scrap of Basic White Thick card and DSP for the tag

Here are the 2 finished boxes together, ready for lovely little Christmas gifts – what would you pop inside them?
