A Quick Gift Box and Card Tutorial

Hi everyone! Judy here today to show you how to decorate a Quick Gift Box and make a coordinating gift card.  It’s so easy to add paper to the box sides with Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch applied to the paper!  I used E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser for assembly of the card along with  Adhesive Dots Medium to hold the bow in place.

Embellish the Gift Box

To cover the box, measure the sides, ends, and top for paper size.  Next, apply Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch to the back of patterned.

Cut paper into pieces to fit top, sides, and ends. Then simply remove the adhesive liner and apply paper to the box!

With a ball head sewing pin, I poked through the liner only to lift a corner so I could peel it off.

Here’s a quick video on How to Use Adhesive Sheets. Note: at the beginning, it shows how to apply the sheet and it can be used to die-cut, punch, and scissor cut…many ways.

Using contrast papers, I created a faux band.  I applied Adhesive Sheets 6 x 12 inch to assemble a strip as one piece before making the band.

Cut into pieces to fit sides and top.  It’s quick to adhere by simply removing the liner and pressing in place!

I made a multi-loop bow of white seam binding.  It’s fastened with an Adhesive Dots Medium, so it will stay on the box when it’s opened.  Wrap the dotted ribbon around the box and tied with a loop bow.

The Gift Card Details

The little gift card is 2½ x 3ʺ.  I had dotted and black cardstock papers with Adhesive Sheets on them from the box to use for the band.  The rest of the papers were fastened with  E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

This Quick Gift Box and Gift Card is easy and quick when you’re in a pinch for time!  The Wilton box I used came flat. It is easy to decorate with papers and stores flat until needed.  Ready at the last minute to fill and tie with a bow!

Happy Crafting!
