Festive Gift Box Creation

Festive Gift Box Creation

My blog today is to share my Festive Gift Box Creation with you. We recently purchased a triple wifi mesh system for the house and the plug adapters came in individual boxes. I liked the design so I deconstructed one and reconstructed it to my own liking.

You can make this easily too! You will need a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock for the box base.


  • Card measuring 9-1/2 x 10-1/4

  • Long side to top score at: 2, 4-3/4, 6-3/4 and 9-1/2
  • Short side to top score at: 3/4, 2-3/4, 6-3/4 and 8-3/4
  • Fold and burnish and cut as per diagram above and below
  • Mitre the four flaps slightly and also slightly curve the edges of the tuck flaps
  • The thin flap on the right side of the diagram (above) is your glue flap. Adhere to opposite side then close the flaps top and bottom of box. Do punch out a thumb notch using a small circle punch
  • Next cut out your DSP mats:
  • Top and bottom of box: 1-3/8 x 3-7/8 (you need two)
  • Sides of box: 2-3/8 x 1-7/8 (you need two)
  • Front and back of box: 2-3/8 x 4-7/8 (you need two)
  • Adhere to your box, make sure you re punch that thumb notch
  • Add some ribbon to top of lid (or you can tie all round but make sure you add your gift first)
  • Make a co-ordinating tag – I used my very best trio punch
  • I would love to see your take on this layout – feel free to share with me across any platform or via email / whatsapp / messenger.
