Need a last-minute gift box? I designed two little Christmas gift boxes featuring vintage artwork for you to print. The pillow-shaped gift boxes are easy as pie to assemble. Perfect for tucking a little gift inside for for neighbors, postal workers, coaches or teachers.
The gift boxes are just the right size for holding a gift card or small gifts like jewelry or magnets. Each box fits on a 8.5"x11" sheet of paper. You can also scale down the size of the box when printing to make a smaller box if you want. Simply print off the the free printable template at the link that follows, cut it out and double-side tape it together. Link to the printable and directions for gift box assembly after the jump.

Directions for gift box assembly
1) Just print the PDF file onto the card stock or similar paper you wish to craft the box from. (If you want a smaller box, just reduce the PDF size.)
2) The printed 8.5" x 11" PDF download will tell you how to assemble the box.
3) Cut out the box on the solid lines.
4) Score along dotted fold lines. I use the edge of a scissors or my Martha Stewart bone folder to make the fold lines.
Use a ruler or straight edge and the bone folder to make your straight fold lines.
Trace all of the dotted lines with the bone folder pressing hard enough to leave an impression on your card stock. This step is very helpful to make the curved lines fold easily.
If you want extra help with the curved fold line, use a small bowl to help you trace the curve with the bone folder.
5) Put a strip of double-sided tape (or strong craft glue) along the tab to secure it to the long side of the box.
6) Press the two sides of the box together to secure the tape.
7) Fold in the curved end flaps on one of the box ends.
8) Place the gift inside. You can add confetti or tissue if you want to help give the box a pillow shape.
9) Fold in the remaining curved end flap.
10) Depending on how secure you want the box sealed, add a sticker or small piece of tape to secure each end. Add ribbon if you desire.
