Make Your Own Gift Boxes.
These tree ornament gift boxes add to the sparkle and festivity of giving. Easy to make using card and fun embellishments, with ribbon to hang on the tree. The box can be made any size. So you’ll always have the perfect box for any gift no matter the shape or length.
Quilty gifts are often awkward to wrap, like a new fabric scissors or rotary cutter. These boxes are quick to make using paper and card you most likely have at home. A brown cardboard box takes on true holiday spirit when festively wrapped. Embellishing is the most fun since buttons, ribbons and anything to do with sewing, quilting or fabric would be suitable! Make some right away, they’ll be done in no time.
The Box Tree Ornament is a cute, fun paper project you can fill with goodies and hang from your tree, mantle, or anywhere you want to give a surprise to someone you love. Make ornaments that go from the tree to the table. Embellishments such as broad ribbon and a different card image on the front turns the gift box into a party favour!
The pattern provides the template and instructions for using 8-1/2 x 11-inch card stock. Simply increase measurements for a larger box, or increase the length for a long gift item such as fabric scissors or sewing pouch.
The gift box pattern is taken from Lynette Jensens ‘Thimbleberries Christmas Cottage. The book is deliciously packed with quilting inspirations, family recipes and design ideas, including ornaments, quilts, fabric inspirations, and more.
