The quickest, easiest and prettiest gift box

Do you like to give little token gifts?

Perhaps just a little something that says Thank You at Christmas. . .

Maybe it is the hairdresser who gives great service. . . or the friendly lady at the local store. . .

Or maybe it is a simple gift of ‘joy’ for a lonely neighbour.

Or. . . maybe like me, you want that little something special for each place setting at a dinner party.

A pretty little Christmas gift box that bursts open to reveal. . .

If you like to give little token gifts. . .

I have the easiest, quickest and dare I say, prettiest wrapping ever!

It’s the pyramid box.

Each box takes just a couple of minutes to construct . . . no glue required.

Simply print, cut, score and fold!!

And you have yourself a fancy schmancy gift box that’s sure to impress.

All you need to do is print off my wrapping paper download onto a piece of cardstock. . . any colour. . . I chose white for a touch of elegance at my Christmas table.

Then you will need my box template from HERE.

You can either print it onto the reverse side of your card. . . or as I did, simply mark the inside square and the box outline with pencil so no lines are obvious inside your box.

Then you cut the box out around the perimeter line.

Score the lines. . . fold it up . . . and then crease the score lines to produce sharp edges.

Use a small hole punch to make a hole near the tip of each outer point. . . thread some pretty ribbon though the holes.

Fill the pyramid box with something delicious and sweet. . . and tie it up.

I added a dainty rhinestone button to the bow for a touch of bling for my dinner party pyramid boxes. . . but you could add a handmade tag, a small Christmas decoration or maybe a sprig of holly.

  3. Love those very pretty boxes, I too make thank you gifts that I hand out to all the people who do such a good job each and every day, from the people in the supermarket, the crocer, the butcher, the people in my favourite op shop and the people in my favourite st ore (Spotlight) and my nearest neighbours. Every year I make and give at 50 hand made gifts. I adore your box creation.

  4. Oh these are just perfect for wrapping some bracelets that I have made. Thank you Kerryanne.

  9. Hi Kerryanne, I have downloaded and printed off you vintage christmas paper. I am doing a craft class next week and we are using it for the idea I have just posted on my blog. Thanks for you generosity in sharing your work. Your download was just what I was looking for. As the classes are run on a budget it helps to cut the cost down.

  10. Thank you so much for your generosity, I have downloaded the template and gorgeous paper and have even made up a quick one in the office with paper, love it!

  11. Yes that’s definately me. I love giving little presents for each person at the dinner table. This year I am using noodle boxes and hope to fill them with scented candles or chocolates.
