Learn how to make a basic design of a gift box so you can change the measurements to make it suit your box needs.
Now you can make the perfect gift box to suit your gift perfectly.
Start by drawing out the base of your box. Mine is 8×8 cm. Make it any size you want, and yours don’t have to be a square, it can be rectangular or any shape you wish!
Then your box need some walls!
I decided mine should be 5 cm high, again, yours can be as high or low as you wish.
Then you will need something you can glue on to make the box stick together, I call it wings.
My wings is 3 cm high, I find that enough for such a small box. But it can be as high as the walls if you wish.
The wings should also be slightly smaller on the top, just make the lines little diagonal, it don’t need to be an exact angle.
Then I’m just going to add 1 cm on top of the walls, this is going to be glued down when I fold the box, and its going make the walls a little bit steadier.
Now your basic box design is done, and its ready to be cut out, folded and glued! Check out our box tutorials to see how you fold, and different box models.
