    You really inspired me. I have to make boxes for crafts at school. And I'm not very good at that. Until I saw this site! Thank you!???

    Nice ideas for making boxes. I especially think that house turned out very beautiful! I had boxes printed for my company so that I can put promotional gifts in them. That's a bit too much work to do yourself!

    very nice boxes and I'm going to try one myself. May I also give a small tip? to make score lines I turn my box cutter over so that I am working with the blunt top. Too blunt to go through the paper and strong enough to give nice tight fold lines.

    Beautiful boxes, I will definitely make them, great

  5. What a super nice blog you have! I'm going to follow you. I think you will also like my blog because it is also a creative blog.
    Love Cindy

    Very cool!! I leave the cutting part to my husband because he is much more precise than I am. Really great tip!

    Those are some beautiful gift boxes, girl

  9. I like this, and I have done it very often...
    I think I have an e-book somewhere full of boxes of patterns, so I'll have to look for it again...

  10. What a useful and practical idea! I think I can do this. Thanks for the tip!

    How wonderful this is! I really like cute gift packaging:-)

    I usually make origami boxes from paper, or bags. There are some templates that I know to make cardboard boxes, but these are a nice addition!

  13. What super nice gift boxes!

    They are super cool, but me and a Stanley knife, pfffff I always make mistakes with those things, how many passe partouts I have already had to cut again, for example to finish my work, hahahaha so I would rather cut this, I can do that tighter, but I once worked at the cutting information service and there you really learn to cut on the lines and tightly 😉


  15. I LOVE gift boxes! So much fun to make yourself!

    Well done. You have inspired me.

  17. Look how nice!! That first box is just like a takeaway box from the Chinese, but very sweet 😉

    Very nice, Els. I assume that the paper you use is a bit sturdier than “normal” wrapping paper?

    What nice boxes these all are. This is really cute and useful for many occasions. I am also a fan of Pinterest myself. You can get so much inspiration from it.

    What really nice boxes to really brighten up your gift!

  21. Connie says:

    Very nice, Els. The boxes themselves are already gifts! Nice to give as a gift and nice to receive.

    What a great idea! I would never think of printing this on the back? the result turned out very nice! You used nice colors and patterns

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
