Star Gift Box with Video Tutorial

Today's project is the project I shared during last night's Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live! It's a star-shaped gift box that I am absolutely in love with.

Here's another view:

And another (smile):

I originally saw this idea from fellow German demonstrator Heike Böhme-Küppenbender about a year ago and set out to figure out a way to create a hexagonal piece of paper without a compass. After lots of trial and error, I figured it out! It really is a fun box to create, so check out my video tutorial:

Here's the template I shared during the video:

I hope you'll give this box a try! It's a beautiful box for the holidays that you can fill with wonderful things!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

  1. Hi Julie, Goodness, I hate leaving comments that always say the same thing…. but, not only are your project always so fabulous, but I love your easy-to-understand templates (and that you provide those for us) and your presentations! What a fabulous box project; so pretty, and a great video tutorial for us (AND…. they do not run for “too long!”) I love everything… Thank you so much for sharing with us!!! Blessings and hugs for you, Donna <3

  2. Fabulous project and tutorial, and I love having the visual of your beautifully made templates! Thanks so much Julie, it’s beautiful! (I’m not sure if my first post actually took, nothing appeared on the page afterward?!). Love this beauty, thank you for sharing, Julie!

  3. I am so glad you include a template. I have a spatial disorder that causes me no end of grief when I craft. The template really helps with right/left, up/down.

    Buon Natale,

  4. Julie… I’m going to try and make this in blue cardstock and place gold points over the blue and see if my Hebrew friend will like this filled with gold chocolate coins for the holidays??? Do you think it will do???

  5. Love, love, love this box Julie, can’t wait to try it!

    You’re my favourite YouTube demonstrator, I always enjoy your videos. I’m hoping one day to be well enough to become a demonstrator here in the UK.

  6. Hi Julie

    First off, I just love your tutorials and your ideas. I love that you make a template as it is so much easier to visualize where you need to cut. Keep them coming, I’m watching all of the tutorials you have on your gallery.

    Can you please put the directions to make this box on your blog. The only thing you have for measurements is the size paper you need.

    You should also rename this “The Star of David” treat box, because that’s what it looks like and for those of us who are Jewish or those who would like to make something for a Jewish person this is a great box.

  7. Great tutorial made some of these for work colleagues as Xmas presents with mini bath bombs – thank you I tried to include picture of mine but couldn’t work how too lol

  8. Only 4.5 years behind seeing this video, but it is so unique! Thank you so much for sharing! Although I haven’t attempted to make it yet the directions in the video seem so clear and fool-proof. Thanks again!
