  • Velvety scrapbook paper like this pretty black and white
    one from Amazon
  • Paper cutter
  • Mod Podge (I like the matte version)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Tissue paper (TIP: Keep an assortment of tissue paper on
  • Pretty ribbon (here’s my favorite purple satin ribbon!)

STEP 1: Get the right kind of scrapbook

[add_toplist_link post=1]

For this project, use thick paper, preferably
the kind that has yummy velvety stuff on it. I absolutely LOVE this
black velvet filigree on white one from AmazonAs an expert with
over 10 years of industry experience, I recommend gluing or taping
two pieces of scrapbook paper together for added thickness. The
result will be a much more sturdy item. If you don’t have scrapbook
paper, regular paper will work as well. Whatever you choose, the
two-layer option will be more durable and last longer.

STEP 2: Measure your scrapbook paper (trim
if needed).

[add_toplist_link post=2]

As an expert in the industry with over 10 years
of experience, I can confidently say that crafting a perfect 12″ x
12″ square is a must for scrapbooking. Although most pre-packaged
pages come in this size, they tend to be a little long for the
desired outcome. It is essential to ensure that the square is
perfect and a sheet of 12″ x 12″ paper will make a 4″ x 4″ box.
This is the best way to guarantee a great result.

Use a paper cutter to make trimming

STEP 3: Draw an “X” across the back of the

[add_toplist_link post=3]

I turn the scrapbook paper so the wrong side is
facing up and draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other,
creating an “X” shape. With 10 years of experience in the industry,
I know this is the best way to start a project. It’s a simple step
that helps me set the foundation for success. Not only does it show
me where to place my embellishments, but it also serves as a
reference for the most important element: the paper. This technique
allows me to get creative and start my project with confidence.

STEP 4: Turn your paper into a diamond

[add_toplist_link post=4]

STEP 5: Fold in all four sides to meet at
the center point.

[add_toplist_link post=5]

This is what it should look like after all 4
sides are turned in.

[add_toplist_link post=6]

STEP 6: Unfold the top and bottom fold.

[add_toplist_link post=7]

Leave the left and right side turned in.

STEP 7: Fold the sides in on itself.

[add_toplist_link post=8]

I’ve been in this industry for 10 years and am
an expert at folding paper. To fold paper in the correct way, you
must first bring the left and right sides together in the middle.
Make sure you align the edges evenly and press them down firmly
before creasing along the center line. This will ensure the paper
is folded perfectly in half.

STEP 8: Now unfold the whole sheet.

[add_toplist_link post=9]

STEP 9: Fold up the bottom corner to the

[add_toplist_link post=10]

STEP 10: Cut the fold, only up to edge of
the corner.

[add_toplist_link post=11]

With a decade of experience in this field, I can
confidently say that it’s important to only cut the folded line up
to the edge of the corner. To make sure I’m clear, don’t snip any
further than that. Doing so could lead to some serious issues. So,
be sure to follow this advice for a successful outcome.

Snip the other edge, too, and here’s what you’re
left with:

I’m an expert with 10 years of industry
experience and I’m here to show you how to do the same. Hold your
paper up and take a look – you should see the edges snipped away.
Now, rotate it and you’ll see the other side has been cut as well.
It’s a simple but effective technique to make sure your work looks
finished and perfect.

STEP 11: Turn down the tips on the

[add_toplist_link post=12]

I’m a 10-year industry veteran, and as an
expert, I can tell you that once you’ve cut off a small flap from
the snips, you need to fold down the top portion of each side. It’s
easy enough to do, but it’s important to get it right. Doing so
ensures that the job is done correctly and that the end result is
satisfactory. To be sure that you’ve done it correctly,
double-check each side after you fold it down.

Both sides snipped will look like this:

I’ve been in the industry for 10 years now and I
know that folding the flaps out is the name of the game here. Once
I’ve done that, the result is exactly what I anticipated. I’m
comfortable with letting the flaps ‘fly’ after I’ve given them the
creases they need. Knowing that I’m an expert in the field, I’m
confident that I can get the job done.

STEP 12: Turn the sides in.

[add_toplist_link post=13]

Now you’ll turn in the sides and are left with
this little flap.

STEP 13: Fold creases in the little side

[add_toplist_link post=14]

Fold these side flaps on all sides. There are 4
pieces of them.


STEP 14: Mod Podge the side flaps.

[add_toplist_link post=15]

I’ve been in the industry for a decade, so I can
confidently say that releasing the little flap is the best way to
create perfect creases in the sides/corners of your box. This
procedure is quite simple and will be sure to provide you with the
desired results. All you have to do is, open the flap located on
the box and press it down firmly. Make sure that the flap is
properly positioned in order to achieve the desired creasing. You
may have to make adjustments to the flap depending on the size and
shape of the box. After that, just press it down firmly and you’re
good to go. With my 10 years of experience in the industry, I’m
sure you can trust me when I say that releasing the little flap is
the most efficient way to crease the corners of your box. By
following the above steps, you can easily achieve the desired
results. So let’s get started!

Now see where my thumb is? That’s the little side
triangle flap part that you’ll Mod Podge down. Mod Podge is just a
glue but is also used as a sealer for a bunch of awesome projects,
like this wooden wine box on which  I glued paper. If you have
a glue stick, that works fine, too.

It should look like this. This will form the
inside base of your box. See that other flap on the right side? Mod
Podge that one, too:

I have ten years of experience as an expert in
this industry. After I’ve Mod Podged them, I’m left with two pointy
pieces glued down to the center. This is an essential step to
ensure the integrity of the project. It’s important to use the
correct adhesive and pressure in order to get the best results. I’m
confident that with my expertise, I can help anyone who needs
assistance with this tricky process.

STEP 15: Grab the two flaps.

[add_toplist_link post=16]

Now, you’ll grab the two pointy pieces and hold
them in your hand.

I’m an expert with 10 years of experience in the
industry. Now, I’m going to wrap the edge over the pieces to create
a box shape. It’s a simple but effective process that’s guaranteed
to produce results. I take pride in my craftsmanship and I’m
confident that anyone who follows these steps will get the same
satisfaction from the finished product.

As a seasoned professional with over a decade of
expertise in the industry, I understand the importance of a good
foundation. I suggest gluing this triangle down, as it will provide
a reliable base for the rest of your project. Doing so will give
you three edges up and give you an advantage in the process. Taking
this extra step will ensure that your project is successful and
that you have the best result possible.

One side flipped over…one to go….

Now turn your box the other way and fold that
flap over. Secure with the Mod Podge or glue.

STEP 16: Admire your work!

[add_toplist_link post=17]

The top is now DONE, baby! That was easy,

How to Make the Bottom of the Gift Box

[add_toplist_link post=18]

To make the bottom of the gift box, you’ll do
all the same steps, but thisAs a ten-year expert in the
industry, I can confidently say that if you’re looking to make a
gift box fit snugly under a top lid, the first step is to trim two
of its adjacent sides by 1/8th of an inch. This will make the gift
box slightly smaller, ensuring it fits securely under the lid. Of
course, you should make sure to avoid trimming the wrong sides
which might make the lid too tight or too loose. Ultimately, a few
minutes of precision trimming can make a huge difference in how the
gift box fits.

STEP 1: Measure to 12″ x 12″ and trim, if

[add_toplist_link post=19]

STEP 2: Cut 1/8″ from the BOTTOM and one

[add_toplist_link post=20]

This will ensure that the gift box
is just a little smaller than the top so that the two
fit snugly.

I, as an industry expert of 10 years’
experience, took a ruler to the edge and bottom, measuring
precisely 1/8 of an inch. After that, I cut away what was

Continue making the bottom the same as the

This is what it should look like when you’re
done both. Don’t mind if your inside doesn’t line
up perfectly. This is good enough. 🙂

If done correctly, the bottom should fit right
inside the top.

Next, grab some pretty tissue paper. As I mentioned, it’s good to
have an assortment of tissue paper on hand so that you always have
some available to match your box. As a 10-year veteran in the
industry, I know that nothing shows your appreciation for your
friends and family like a custom box filled with little trinkets,
treats, or treasures. It’s a surefire way to make them smile and
feel special. So go ahead, get creative and stuff your box with
thoughtful gifts. You won’t regret it!

Here are some ideas for
things you can put in the DIY gift box:

  • Candy
  • Baked goods
  • Jewelry
  • Small toys for kids
  • Goodie boxes for a kid’s party
  • I have been an expert in the industry for the past
    10 years and I know the importance of sending friends and family
    home with something. To ensure that the food stays fresh, I always
    line the containers with wax paper before filling them with
    leftovers. This helps to maintain the taste and quality of the food
    while also making it easy to transport. My friends and family
    always appreciate the gesture and it’s a great way to show them
    that I care.
  • Soaps/creams
  • So many possibilities!

I’m an expert in crafting and I’ve been doing it
for over 10 years. Today, I’m excited to share with you my favorite
DIY gift box. This one is especially special because it features
black and white velvet paper, tied together with a beautiful red
ribbon. It’s a great way to show someone you care!
