This 2 minute video will show you how to assemble your paper gift box. The example box in the video is actually my Free Mother’s Day Paper Gift Box. You can visit the original post here if you’d like to check out the 6 Mother’s Day designs, including the free template shown in the video.

I’ve also included step by step photo instructions of my Christmas boxes below.

I printed my template on 200GSM card stock in this video, but you can also use standard printer paper. The thicker card just makes the final gift box a bit stronger. If you’re using thicker card, it’s a good idea to score your paper before folding. In this video I’ve just used a paperclip and ruler to do this, but you can purchase proper scoring equipment (like this one on Amazonaffiliate link) if you prefer. It’s not necessary to score standard printer paper.
