Tag Archives: how to make a gift box

Homemade gift boxes for fragile or breakable gifts or jewelry


I wanted to showcase, protect and wrap the homemade Christmas ornaments to be given as gifts for my daughter’s teachers and so I came up with how to make a simple gift box at home.

I used a small medicine box and cut it in half, taped the sides together and used a small piece of wrapping paper to cover the bottom. I folded it so it covered the sides and taped each side to the inside bottom. Next I used a paper towel as the cushion for the inside and placed my ornament inside. Lastly I cut a small piece of cellophane to cover the top, taped in place on the back and put a to-from label over the tape to hide it.

The boxes turned out lovely and this would be simple to make for any number of gifts.
