Step 1 Print Out Template
Making these gift boxes is an easy craft project. Make sure you download and print out the template. You can find the free template at https://stylenrichdiy.com/template-diy-paper-gift-box-craft/. Make sure you print the template out on size A4 colored paper. Carefully cut out the template by cutting around the outside lines of the box.
Step 2 Cut Out the Template
You will need to fold the sides of the box to create its shape. To make the sides easier to fold, take your cutter and run it along the lines. It's important that you avoid cutting these lines.
Step 3: Paste the Edges
To put the box together, add glue to the box's edges and stick them together. Cut a small section near the upper part of the box to secure the upper flap. Make sure the box is glued together, and the glue is dry before continuing.
Step 4: Paste the Printed Pattern on the Box
Grab your printed paper and trace the hexagon on one side of the box. The hexagon should measure 5x5 cm. Cut out the hexagon shape and paste it on the box's opening flap. Cut a 1.5 cm strip of the printed paper. This strip needs to be 1.5 cm in length. Paste the strip around sides of the box.
Step 5: Decorate the Box
To give your candy box a completed look, you can add decorative elements to the top and sides. Pearls are one type of embellishment you can add to the top of the box. The little embellishments add a nice touch to the box. You have now made a gift box that's ready for gifting.
