A little gift box

Today I am sharing a little cube gift box template with you.

First you need to click on the template to enlarge it and then right click and save to your computer. Print the template out onto the reverse of a piece of card that will go through your printer. I have sized it to print on A4 paper, but you can probably tweak it to fit letter size if you are in the US. Next score on the dotted lines and cut out the solid lines.

Glue the tabs where marked and you have yourselves a cute little cube gift box. Dress it up with punched flowers or ribbon to make it special. I like raffia, I think it works well for spring.

If you have a circle punch you can take a "bite" out the front of your box for easy opening.

You can then fill it with mints or chocolates and with the aid of a lollipop stick and a circle of card, you could use it as a name card holder for a spring tea party. Your guests can then take this home with them as a little keepsake.

The flowers I used to decorate my boxes are punched using my Petal Pairs punches from Tonic Studios. There is now a free download on their facebook page of a fun little magazine that can be used with their punches. I made the daisy flower from a tutorial by Kirsty Wiseman, and the pretty mixed flowers were from a "print and punch" sheet in the same magazine. (All you need to do to get access to the magazine is to like their page on facebook.)

The circle on the lollipop stick was cut using my Shape Mate and the beautiful  butterfly was made with the Multi Detail Punch.
