Handmade Gift Boxes – Stripes or Polka Dots

How to make Handmade Gift Boxes – Stripes or Polka Dots

Today’s project is focused on How to make Handmade Gift Boxes – Stripes or Polka Dots design – I can’t decide which I love the most.

Project one is a striped lid and Night of Navy Base. Project two is a polka dot lid and Coastal Cabana Base.

I can’t decide which is my favourite! What is yours?

The stripe lidded box is lovely blue and yellow tones. The night of navy and bumblebee colours compliment each other well. The bumblebee ribbon makes the project even more colourful.

The mix of colours on the polka dot lid make this box really fun. The coastal cabana base reminds me of summer days. That little hint of Misty Moonlight in the form of the ribbon finishes this box off perfectly.

I need to do more 3d projects and make more gift boxes.


1 – Box Base measures 6 x 6 inches
2 – Box Lid measures 6 x 6 inches also
3 – Score box base at 2″ on all four sides, fold and burnish. Cut up two lines on two opposite sides and adhere together to form the box.
4 – Score box lid at 1″ and 2″ on all four sides, however, on two sides, move your paper away from the edge a tiny touch before scoring. This will allow for a slightly bigger lid that will close flush with the base.
5 – On your lid piece, cut an “L” shape from each corner and cut up score lines as directed in YouTube video below.
6 – Adhere together.
7 – Add ribbon to finish off (remember put your goodies inside first!)
