We want to help you get into the holiday spirit with a fun DIY project. All you need is a printer, glue, an exacto knife and a steady hand. The final product can be used as a gift box and/or decoration suitable for minimal lovers. These boxes are Scrooge approved and are perfect for making your desk & home more festive without going overboard (put down the tinsel).
You will need:
Print out your templates on thick paper or cardstock for best results. We printed our templates at Kinkos on 11" x 17" 80 lb. cardstock
Cut along the outside edges of the template using an exacto knife & a straight edge for more accurate results. Scissors will work too.
Use an exacto knife to lightly score the inside lines of the template. Be careful not to score too hard or else the tabs will come off.
Bend all the edges of the box and carefully glue the tabs to the backside of the box walls. We used rubber cement because it’s a fast & strong adhesive.
DO NOT glue the top flap If you intend to use these as gift boxes.
