Gift Box DIY 4

If you’re anything like me, sometimes you drop the ball on holidays not because you don’t care, but because your memory isn’t stellar. Well, there is a solution! Gift boxes are a great option to gift something handmade and in a simple yet thoughtful way last minute. I never know what to get my mom so throwing some of her favorite things into one box works on so many levels. I try to include a little bit of everything – candy, beauty products, something random and fun she’ll like. This gift box is something that requires zero cutting, minus the chipboard, and can be made in minutes.

Gift Box Instructions 1
Step 1. Start by gluing the sides together in the shape of a box, letting each side dry before moving to the next. TIP: If you want to add a top, I only did on one, then you want to glue the opposite pieces the same way. For example, two of the wood slats opposite of each other are glued inside the other two.

Step 2. For the top, place 2 slats on top to make sure they’re flush with the sides. Glue the 3rd piece right on top.
Step 3. For the base, I cut down some chipboard and glued it around the edges.
Step 4. Lightly sand the edges and side to get rid of any spilled glue or rough edges.

Step 5. You can paint if you’d like, but I really enjoy the natural wood so I just added some white and a pop of blue.

The box is super simple but effective, especially when filled with delicious things… like candy! Every mother should be totally cool with that.
