As I was finishing up the last minute gift wrapping (at least for all the gifts that are done, still DIYing a couple things), I decided I wanted a better way to wrap up the gift cards we are giving.

Gift cards are a great gift, but those tiny envelopes just look so sad under tree. I wanted a cute little gift card box that would make those gift cards look as special as they are! I mean who doesn’t like to receive money for Christmas?!

The first one I made is a pretty standard gift card box, but of course I jazzed it up with some sparkly scrapbook paper. Then a quick tie with some twine and it’s the perfect way to wrap a gift card.

And this box is so easy to put together!!! It’s easier than wrapping an irregular box (or those kids toys that have open fronts on the boxes, I hate wrapping them!).

But I also had an idea for another style of gift card box. One that would fall open and reveal the pop-up gift card inside.

This gift card holder almost didn’t happen. The top of the box was giving me oh, so many issues. I used up about 12 sheets of paper cutting, redesigning, and cutting again. It was late last night and I almost gave up.

Luckily, I didn’t have to wake up early this morning and I persisted!

They say 3rd times a charm, but this one took me 6 tries. It was worth it because the gift card box opens like a flower to reveal the prize inside.

And it too is easy to make (now that I have it figured out). You can leave the box as is, add a cute little tag or bow. But I can’t wait to see how it is opened up in a few days!

How to Make a Gift Card Box

Supplies:

  • Gift card box templates
  • Cardstock
    • You will need (1) 12″x12″ sheet and (1) 8 1/2″x11″ sheet for the rectangle gift card box and (2) 12″x12″ sheets for the hexagon gift card box.
  • Glue
    • I prefer my hot glue gun for 3D paper crafts, but a glue stick would work too.
  • Gift cards
  • Optional: Electronic cutting machine like a Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Maker

For the Hexagon Gift Card Box

Cut the template out of the cardstock. You will need 1 of the gift card holder centers and 2 of the box side pieces per box. Fold along all the dotted lines.

Pinch the triangle sections between the sides together in your fingers while folding up the sides. Glue the two side pieces together at the tabs to create one large circle.

Secure the bottom with glue. Fold the pop-up gift card holder together and secure with a small line of glue just around the outside. Glue into the bottom of the hexagon box.

To close the box, latch together opposite sides. You will have 3 latches total to close the entire box.

For the Rectangle Gift Card Box

Cut the template out of the cardstock. You will need 1 of the outer gift card box and one of the center gift card holder piece per box. Fold along all the dotted lines.

Secure the side tabs on the bottom of the box. Then repeat for the top lid of the box.

Fold over the edging and secure with glue.

Fold the gift card holder inner piece as shown. Pinch the sections between your fingers to get a clean line.

Glue the bottom of the inner piece into the front bottom of the box. Then glue the top of the inner piece into the front top of the box.

Create a rectangle gift card box with this free template. The box holds the gift card snuggly and it pops up to display when the box is opened. Housefulofhandmade.com

Now you are ready to load up your new gift card boxes. Don’t forget to write down how much is on the card (just under the gift card in the cute holder is the perfect place).
