Materials + Tools:
- 8.5 x 11 cardstock paper
- Brit + Co’s gift box template 1 and gift box template 2
- X-ACTO knife
- cutting mat
- thin gold paint pen
- optional: scissors, single hole punch, ribbon and mini bows
Print out the templates on thick cardstock. Then use the X-ACTO knife to cut out the box templates and gift tags. Be sure to use a ruler to get clean lines on the tree tags.
After the template is cut out, put your gift in and start folding (without actually folding!) the non-patterned edges and use tape on the bottom and top side. Repeat for the patterned top edges. Pro tip: Since this cardstock is thick, you’ll want to make sure these edges are super secure… so the more tape, the better!
Next, fill out your tree gift tags and let the gold paint dry. Use tape to attach these to the folded edge side, and voila! No-fold, tiny, adorable (and free!) printable gift boxes.
If you’re feeling extra fancy, break out the ribbon and bows and add a hole to your tree to attach the tag. Happy gifting!
