I've been trying to find a cute way to package the gift sets in my Etsy shop and this is what I came up with. My own box - made from card stock - and without a cutting machine!
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 pieces of card stock - heavier weight is better (I used 12x12)
- cutting mat (optional - to help ensure straight lines)
- long ruler
- glue stick
- scoring tool (I used a butter knife, but there are tools specifically for scoring)
Make the squared edges of the paper meet
and finish off the edge of the triangle.
Step 5: Repeat for all 4 corners.
Step 6: Glue the insides of the corners together.
Step 7: Fold the triangles over to the side of the box and glue down. Do this at all 4 triangles. I also added some tape for stability.
Step 8: I also added some tape to the outer corners of the box for more strength.
Step 9: Repeat for the other side of the box. You'll want to adjust the box size just a minor amount so that the box will comfortably fit together. For instance, I scored in exactly at 2" on each size and made this the bottom of the box. For the top, I scored at 1 7/8" instead.
Step 10: Make it pretty and fill it with your items! I added a label to the top and used some tape to help keep the box closed.
If you try this (especially with any other variations), I would love to see!!
