Quick gift boxes

This time a year the need of quick and easy gift boxes increases…. And the closer to Christmas one is the more the need for the quick and easy part. :) So I thought I’d share the box that has saved me many a time. It looks real nice and is done in a couple of minutes.

Sorry for bad photos, wasn’t able to take photos in daylight.

The boxes are made out of paper stripes 3 x 8. the papers are scored at half at 4”  and on then scored like a diamond shape from the short ends. Start on the center of the short end 1 1/2, and score to the outer edge of either side of the center scored line of the long side. When this is done from both sides simply fold along all the five scored line and punch a hole and tie a ribbon to hold it. Sorry for bad explanation, hope you get it.

The boxes are decorated with cutie pies Dudley & Warren. Colored with distress inks and cut out. Sentiment from Christmas Tidings set.
