Standard A2 Gift box tutorial


Card stock, adhesive, decorative die, score tool, scissors.

Step 1

Cut a piece of card stock 6 1/4 inches width by 8 1/4 inches length. Score 1 inch on all 4 sides. Pre-fold and snip ends as shown. Add adhesive. This is will be the box base

Step 2

Fold in the snipped edge and secure. This is with one side secured. Secure the other side to form box base. Set aside

Step 3

For the box lid, cut a piece of card stock 6 1/2 inches width by 8 1/2 inches length. Score 1 inch on all four sides and snip the ends just as we did with the base. If you desire a window in your box as I have you will cut that window before you do anything else. Here I have Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles die for my window. Secure your die to the front with a piece of tape and die cut

Step 4

Turn lid over and add adhesive to the inside for the clear sheet of acetate paper. This way you can see the pretty cards through the box lid. Makes for great presentation. Fold the box sides in as you did with the base and secure

Step 5 

Here is the gift box complete. Decorate as desired.

Step 6

Here is a picture of my box with the cards inside and with them displayed. I wrapped some lace trim around the box and added the same jewel to the corners of the box lid. The flowers are called Peonies and Tulips from Power Poppy. Enjoy
