Boxing Up Giving

These boxes are great to add a little extra something special to any small gift. I like them for any kind of jewelty, stitch markers, and other small handmade goodies for friends. I love these boxes and have been making them for quite awhile. I figured it was about time to commit the templates for them to paper. I keep copying the cut outs I made for the original ones over and over again. This will make it nice and easy for me to make them and it will make a nice little project for you. It’s scary to say it’s getting close to that handmade Christmas time of year, but really, all us handmakers need to start making our supply list, checking it twice, and get going on our Christmas Crafting. These are just the boxes to hold our handmade treasures and keep them safe and sound.

It’s super easy to use them too. Just print out on card stock, cut with an X-acto knife, fold and glue them together. That’s it. Super easy peasy. Enjoy!

Well, speaking of Christmas crafting, I’m going to knit the night away on some of just that.

Best wishes and Happy Crafting!

  5. Very cool… I printed them out on card stock. But I have a silly question.. should I do it backwards? so you can’t see the words fold and cut? okay.. I’m really blond today… you must make sure the words are on the inside.. duh I’m a goof :)

  6. Thank you so much. I have been looking for something like this for ages!!! It will save me a fortune in boxes for my hand painted Guardian Angels. Brilliant.
