Quick and easy beautiful gift boxes
DO NOT use the stencil with the blue background, it was made from a photo taken from a slanted angle and therefore will not work! I will upload a scanned stencil at a later date

These are just something quick and easy to present little presents in

I ordered my friend a pendant online but had no suitable gift box to give it to her in, so I made this :) works very well, but be sure to make it out of card and not paper else it won't be strong enough

Look at picture 3, the blue stencil for reference to which flaps are what as I have numbered them

    Cut out your stencil - you can try to copy mine but printing the one I have supplied will not work, it is slanted (I will try to upload a scan at a later date).

    Cutting the slits in parts 2 and 4 at the top is the most tricky part.

    It is nice to add a bit of tissue paper inside and helps to make sure that whatever is in your box is kept safe
