Ribbon Holly Gift Boxes





  1. Step 1

    Download and print the template onto card stock. Cut out the shape along the outside line. Punch holes where the circles are marked. With the lined side facing up, gently fold the card stock toward you, using the inside lines as a guide. Fold along the lines.

  2. Step 2

    Shape the box into the closed position, and make any necessary adjustments. Starting at the bottom, thread the ribbon ends from the inside of the box.

  3. Step 3

    Tie in a half-knot. Thread a bead onto the ribbon, finish the knot, and snip the ribbon ends using the scalloped scissors. Carefully close the flaps on one end, place the gift into the box, and fold the other end closed.

    Unless you have a postscript printer that accommodates 17" paper and enlargements, you should print the template as large as you can on 8.5" x 11" paper.

    Then use your printer/copier to enlarge by desired percentage - - then piece the pages together for your pattern.

    Any trick to enlarging the template and getting it to print out? I can't seem to make it work.

    I made these for my daughters wedding and filled them with homemade peanut butter fudge. BIG HIT.
