On to the top part..

  • Mark at 1cm on all sides and draw out the lines.
  • Should look like you have a border and a large square in the middle.
  • Fold lines.
  • If you look at each corner, there is a small box.. with every corner box, cut the right side. Repeat for all corners.
  • Bring the sides together and glue to create a top lid.

And now you completed the top part of the gift box!

Step 3: Assembling the Gift Box

  • Put together the bottom box and top lid.. voila! You have a gift box!

  • You can use (mini) gift bows or curling ribbon to give your box the finishing touches ✨

Step 5: Making the Craft Stick Sleigh

  • Take 5 craft sticks and align them to look like a sleigh.
  • With another craft stick, cut it in half and fix the edges to make it look nice.
  • With the 2 pieces of craft stick that has been cut in half, place them on the sleigh and glue.
  • Let the glue set.

    Note: be patient and let the glue set before moving on.

Step 7: Decorate

  • Take a strand of (satin) ribbon and tie it to the 2 candy canes.
