Free online handmade gift box step by step tutorial for Christmas, Birthdays or a thank you gift!

This is a project made by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Tricia Smith, based in Fife, Scotland, UK



Hello and welcome to Christmas Series number 24 which is a cut pizza style top folding box – perfect for Christmas gifts or table favours.

I have used my all time favourite DSP wrapped in Plaid along with some basic black cardstock and other elements from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite.

Instructions and Measurements:


Cut an A4 piece of cardstock down to 9″ x 6″ inches and with the longest side at the top score at 1″, 4″, 5″ and 8″ turn once and score at 1″ and 6″.
Fold and burnish all scorelines.
With the longest side at the top, score up x4 score lines to meet the first score line running across – flip and do the same on the other longest side.
Add Dsp to top of box which measures 3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ and one to the front of box which should measure 3 7/8 x 7/8″.  Cut a further two pieces of DSP for the two sides and these should measure 2 7/8″ x 7/8″
Adhere as instructed in tutorial video.


Belly Band

Cut a 1″ strip of cardstock and manually wrap around box to gauge where score lines are. Add your ribbon to the belly band using tear and tape and adhere making sure that the fit is not too tight to allow the recipient to remove and replace the band as necessary.

Add your punched circles embellishment area and punched tree shape and finish off with adding some spring punch shapes.
