Day 7 -boxes

Day 7
Why is it that all year long, I fill the recycling with all kinds of boxes but come December there isn’t a box to be found?
Here is a super easy way to make and decorate a box that is perfect for those smaller gifts.

For the 3” box (middle size) you will need:
9”x9” printed Cardstock (bottom of box)
5”x5” printed cardstock (box lid)
Red Tacky Tape
Scor-pal or paper trimmer with a score blade.


1.     Score the bottom of the box at 3” and 6” on the top and side.
2.     Cut the sides.
3.     Add Red Tacky Tape to sides and fold.
4.     Score the top of the box at 1” and 4” on the top and side.
5.     Cut the sides
6.     Add Red Tacky tape to sides and fold.

To make the small box
6”x6” cardstock, scored at 2” and 4” for the bottom
4 x 4  cardstock, scored at 1” and 3” for the lid

To make the large box
12 x 12 Cardstock, scored at 4” and 8” for the bottom
6 x 6 cardstock, scored at 1” and 5” for the lid

Follow the rest of the instructions.
You can either cut the box out of printed cardstock or from a solid color and then add squares of printed paper to each side.

Add a tag and some ribbon and you have the cutest little box, perfect of that special, one of a kind gift.

I used Bella Blvd, Christmas wishes paper.  The tags were made using the Journaling stickers from the same line.  Easy peasy!!!
