How To Make A Gift Box For Any Occasion
Whether it is a birthday, engagement, or simply a house warming party, presenting a gift almost never goes out of fashion. It is believed that the gift cover doesn’t matter as much as what is inside but we bet you will disagree on this one.
Giving an interesting gift is only half the job done but making it look presentable completes the purpose. After all, you wouldn’t want to miss your loved one’s priceless expression when you hand over an elegantly decorated gift, would you?
Here is when gift boxes come into play. They are the stylish new alternatives to gift wrapping paper. Although these are available in the market in varying shapes and sizes, you can also try creating handmade gift boxes to give a personal touch to your gift.
Special gifting occasions
Your planner for the year may be filled with important events like family gatherings, birthdays, weddings, and festivals. So, your gift box should reflect the occasion you are attending. This means that if you are attending a festival party like Diwali, it would be appropriate to have your gift box look more decorative instead of sticking to pastel hues. Likewise, presenting a gift on someone’s fifth birthday in a festive-inspired gift box would not be a good idea. Also, searching high and low in the market will only waste your time and money. So, making one yourself using fun craft ideas will not only let you customize the design depending on the occasion but also prevent unnecessary expenses.
Materials needed to make your gift box
The materials required for this DIY craft activity include a ruler, blending foams, blending tool, toothpick, A4-sized handmade papers, pencil, scissors, glue, craft punch, artistry inks, and a cardboard box set (you can use only one box if desired). Alternatively, you could use cardboard papers, to create the skeleton of your box. Since this type of paper is available in most stationery shops, you will not have trouble finding it. If you’re too lazy to go out, you can find all these craft items right here.
