NAPKIN FOLD GIFT BOX WITH VIDEO TUTORIAL

Today’s project is a Napkin Fold Gift Box that I demonstrated during this week’s Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live!

Here’s what the box looks like as you start to open it:

And then all the way:

And here’s what it looks like closed and tied with a bow:

Wouldn’t this be an amazing way to give a gift?!? I’d like to give credit to Samantha Clayton (Mixed Up Craft) for this project – I love her stuff!

This box measures approximately 1-5/8″ H x 3-1/8″ W x 3-1/8″ D. It’s a fantastic little size! Here’s my video tutorial:

The napkin fold part of the box is 3″ x 3″ and can just be used as a card if you don’t cut it apart to adhere to the box. It’s also easy to adapt to different sizes. I started with a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper and it folds down into 3″ x 3″, so once you determine the size napkin fold you’d like, just double the size to get to your starting size. Then the scorelines will be at 1/4th of the starting size. So, with a 6″ x 6″ starting piece, you score at 1-1/2″ on all 4 sides. And the tick marks you add are always at the halfway point, so 3″.

Here is the box base template:

Here is the box lid template:

And here is the napkin fold template:

This box is so much easier than it looks to create and I hope you’ll give it a try! If you do, please post it on social media with the hashtag #paperpixie and I’ll look for it!

  2. Can I just mention, that I think this box is great. So, different from other forms of a presentation boxes.

  3. I just love this little box. The perfect little box to put a baby’s necklace in for the new baby coming in August. Can’t wait for my new Granddaughter.
