How to Make a Gift Card Box
- Gift card box templates
- 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.
- I prefer my hot glue gun for 3D paper crafts. But a glue stick would work too.
- Gift cards
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.
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).
