Mother’s Day is such a special time of the year. Becoming a mom myself has been one of the most exciting and challenging times of my life, and it’s shown me just how special my own mom is too.
I’ve created a range of printable gifts you can color and make for mom in my new Mother’s Day range. You can use the printable Mother’s Day gift tags, bookmarks, Mother’s Day cards and more to create a very special personalized gift for a special mom in your life. I’ve made sure to include both “mom” and “mum” spellings on everything, so everyone can enjoy coloring something special for mom or mum!
I’ve also created a template you can use to make these adorable paper gift boxes to fill with a special Mother’s Day gift. Here’s a look at the final boxes:
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to make one of these Mother’s Day paper gift boxes using my free template.
You can download the whole pack of 6 templates in my store.

This 2 minute video will show you how to assemble your paper gift box.
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 Amazon – affiliate link) if you prefer. It’s not necessary to score standard printer paper.
