This is such a cute project to make! I created these easy little DIY Cardboard Gift Boxes for an Advent Calendar project. They turned out great, and were quite straightforward to make, with simple supplies.
I spent a lot of time and thought researching a method that was simple and quick, and that didn’t involve printing templates (score)!
For this project, I used an A4 piece of card, and the width of a ruler to determine the box dimensions. You can tailor the size of the box depending on the size paper you use. And the height of the box can be varied, depending on what size ruler you use. Have a play around until you find one that suits.

Whether it’s for storage or gifts, isn’t it rewarding to make something from scratch?
