Good morning Fantabulous Friends! It is another lovely day here at Fantabulous Cricut. I am sure you must all be like busy little elves getting gifts and shopping and cutting and crafting done! This week’s challenge here at
FCCB is all about gifts and gift giving. So today I wanted to share a tutorial I made for a great little box that you can make quickly and easily from paper folding.
You can create your boxes in different sizes but the base is always from one piece of 12x12 paper (or smaller).
folded boxes-500
Here are some boxes I made using the same technique in the tutorial. I only changed the size of the box that I started with to get a bigger box.

folded boxes opened-500
Here is a shot of the biggest box open. I have a Walmart gift card and some candy in this box. Perfect for the “tween” in my life who really wants money Smile

Here is the link for the tutorial.
It is on my website. GO HERE


This will take you step by step through making the box and the lid.

Please be sure to join us in our challenge now! No excuses…Plus enter to win our great daily giveaways!!!
Merry Christmas….Melin

  18. I remember making a couple of the stacked boxes ones a few years ago! I even decorated the lid of one to look like a scarecrow and one to look like a snowman. Now that I've been reminded of them I'll have to make a few more! lol

  28. I never thought to use a box like that for a gift card. What a great idea. I also love the non-traditional pink and green colors. I have three gift cards to give and can't wait to make this box for them!

  29. Perfect timing for me to find this box tutorial ... As I have ben thinking lately that I needed to make my own boxes. I was going to just take boxes & cover them ... but I think I'd rather make them from the paper now!
