Hello Crafty Friends! It’s the 6th day of my annual “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” series! Surprising friends and family with thoughtful gifts is such a fun part of the holiday season. Today I’m sharing a sweet handmade gift box that is perfect for holding sweet treats and small gifts. 

This country Christmas gift box is a printable that is both quick and simple to assemble. Print the box on white cardstock to create a sturdy box that measures 3.5″ by 3.5″ when finished. The box is a great size for treats like cookies as well as small gifts like ornaments. 

I created this box using a farmhouse scene I hand drew and painted with watercolor. It was a fun painting project that looks so cute decorating the sides of these boxes!

I love creating treat boxes for the holidays and have so many fun tutorials and printable boxes! Handmade boxes are such a sweet way to gift something special! I have tutorials for cut-out boxes you can make on your Cricut as well as other printable boxes and even boxes that can be colored!

Supplies Needed

Farmhouse printable boxes lay next to a scoring board, scissors and double-sided tape.

Assembling the Gift Box

Step One: Print and cut out the box pieces. Start by printing out the box on white cardstock. Each box prints on two pieces of paper. Cut each part out using a paper trimmer and scissors.

Box pieces are cut out with a paper trimmer.

The two parts of the box fully cut out lay next to a small scissors.

Step Two: Score and fold the box and tabs. I like to use a scoring board to get nice crisp folds. I used the edge of the bone folder to go over the scored lines. This helps the pieces of the box lay nice and flat, especially on top.

The box pieces are scored on a scoring board.

A yellow bone folder creases the flaps on the box.

Step Three: Attach the two box pieces together. Use double-sided tape, or another strong adhesive to adhere the two box pieces together along the tabs.

Double-sided tape is applied to one of the tabs on a box piece.

The two box pieces are attached one one end.

The box pieces are attached on both sides forming a box open on the top and bottom.

Step Four: Fold the bottom of the box in as shown in the picture below. The top of the box folds in and creates a neat spiral design. There is no need for tape to hold the box closed, though you can use twine to tie a bow around the box.

The box is finished! Ready to be filled with treats, sweets and special small gifts!

If you are using the box to hold something heavy, cut a piece of chipboard, just slightly smaller than 3.5″ square and set it in the bottom of the box. This adds a lot of stability to the box. If you are filling the box with food items, I recommend wrapping them in something as the box will most likely be made from cardstock that is not food safe.
