DIY Gift Boxes

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people that thinks that – on occasion – the packaging can be part of the gift. You know what I’m talking about, right?

The Christmas gift that comes in the little box shaped like a gingerbread man. The birthday treats in a special container with confetti in the little clear window. I guess sometimes I’m like a little kid that enjoys playing with the box more than what’s in it!

I didn’t always feel this way. I used to be the worst gift wrapper on the planet. Just ask my mother! I had a lot to work on in terms of presentation. It wasn’t until I realized that you could make the gift box or bag a craft in itself that I got more excited about delivering my gifts in handmade vessels that make an impact.

Which brings me to these DIY gift boxes. When you’re giving smaller items for birthdays or the holidays, gift boxes are a must! Jewelry, keychains, mugs, candles . . . there’s a ton of stuff that is either small or a strange size that goes really well in a box.

And while you’re giving someone a present, why not go ahead and make the container something special too? I’ve got a variety of DIY gift boxes for you to check out – ranging from simple to a little bit more elaborate (gingerbread house!). But all of them are easy. And all of them add a special touch to what is likely an already amazing gift.
