Home Made Gift Boxes

Dear Chicago House,

I love scrap book papers but rarely use them for scrap book projects, they tend to get frame and hung within your walls like here and here.
Here is another fun way to use them, home made boxes, which would work perfectly as gift boxes. All they take are a little patience and a bit of folding …scroll down for a video tutorial.




I think I will be making a few more of these in more festive papers as the holiday season rolls in.

Love from

  1. Nice to see a video to review how to make the box. Have not made one in Years so now I can start again to make gift boxes and save money. Thank you for sharing.

  2. wow wow wow – love it! quick question though, is there a way to make the lid less wide, so its quite a bit shorter than the box?

    I just tried leaving more space (where you left 3-4mm) but it just made the lid too wide then 🙁

  3. Thanks for such detail instructions – great video! I have been making these for years but have never seen in the inside divider made .. LOVE it! And it is nice to know how to make the larger tops, versus using smaller paper for bottoms!
