These adorable and festive Christmas tree gift boxes are perfect for candy or a small treat.
To make this gift box, you’ll need:
- Paper (8.5×11 or 12×12)
- Rubber Cement
- Toilet paper roll
- Hot glue gun
You’ll also need the freebie files. Included in the .zip is both a printable .pdf doc to cut yourself as well as a silhouette cutter file.
Print / Cut out the Christmas tree box pattern as well as the branch details.
Next, score along the dotted lines in the diagram below. To do this I use either a scoring tool, or the plastic end of the silhouette pick-me-up stick along with a metal straight edge.
Next, glue the small edge “B” to large bottom side “A” with rubber cement, then glue “C” to both of them. The other flaps stay free to be tucked in when closing the box.
Then glue on the branch details, letting the edges hang over the sides of the pyramid box. I like to make them feel random, and put 2-3 on a side.
Next apply the rhinestones like Christmas lights around the tree. I try to cover the corners of the branch details with rhinestones. This helps them feel a little more incorporated into the tree.
Use a marker to draw on the string connecting the lights. You could also draw on other ornaments.
After the little tree is decorated. Cut about an inch off of a toilet paper roll and hot glue it to the bottom for the trunk. Try to make the cut as even around as possible, so that the tree sits straight upright.
I keep finding new ways to use these gift boxes and new things to fill them with. I was thinking about lining a mantel with 25 of them, each filled with an ornament, to open each day before Christmas. They would also make great classroom gifts filled with Christmas candy. I would love to hear ya’lls ideas for the boxes. Happy Holidays!
