DIY—Handmade boxes!

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be back with this really easy—yet super fun, tutorial. I’ve always been interested in making my own card boxes; and one day I felt like searching the sea of videos on Youtube to find a quick, easy, and fun handmade box tutorial. When searching, I came across this really cute duo, from the UK, that has a blog and Youtube channel dedicated to handmade crafts; and, I immediately feel in love with them. They’re so cute, funny, and delightfully entertaining. You can find them here and here.

What I did was take the box making instructions they’ve provided and made a box according the dimensions that I needed. I wanted to make a box for my handmade ‘Thank you’ cards, but I also wanted room to include handmade envelope seals and a black and white bakers twine for a little added cuteness.
For this tutorial I’m going to simply show photographs of how I made these boxes, but you can check out their video for detailed instructions on how to cut and assemble these boxes. I don’t want to take full credit for these—I’m hoping to get them the exposure they deserve for this wonderful idea. You can click here for the video.

Enjoy!


Now wasn’t that just the cutest?! I love that I know how to make these now—these would work great a gifts, favor boxes, and so much more. I hope you give this a try! Happy Crafting!
