Hello Crafty Friends! Today I am excited to share with you a new gift box that just screams spring – a Greenhouse Gift Box! As I mentioned last week, I have been in a gardening mood. Our flowers are just starting to come up and it is so fun to see. The daffodils are in bloom, our peony tree is covered in buds, and our hostas are poking through the dirt in our flower beds. With flowers on the mind, I decided to create something for Mother’s Day that was flower-themed!

I painted the greenhouse with watercolors and then scanned the painting into Photoshop to create the box. You can download it for free to create your own! With the free printable, it really is easy to put together.

I made a cupcake holder that fits nicely inside the box since I was using these boxes to hold flower cupcakes from a local bakery. You could also use the cupcake holder to hold little flower pots, which would make a great gift! With this type of box, you definitely want to put something pretty inside since you’ll be seeing it!

How to Make a Greenhouse Gift Box

Supplies Needed:

*If you are making the greenhouses to hold little plants, you can skip the clear craft plastic. I also added a piece of chip board to the bottom of my box to give more support to the plant. This worked really well!

Supplies needed to make a paper greenhouse lay on a table.

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Cut out all of the pieces using a scissors or paper trimmer.

Step Two: Use a craft knife to cut the windows out of the greenhouse.

Step Three: Score all of the fold lines then gently fold the pieces. A scoring board and stylus will make things really easy and help to create nice folds.

Step Four: Add flowers to the inside of the greenhouse. Since the roof of this little greenhouse gift box has lots of see-thru windows, I wanted to make the inside folds of the box look pretty. Glue the floral triangles to the wrong side of the treat box pieces as shown below.

Step Five: Cover all of the windows with craft plastic, acetate or vellum. I used my tape runner and Grafix craft plastic.

Step Six: Assemble the box by adhering the sides together.

Fold in the bottom of the box. Adding a square piece of chipboard to fit in the bottom of the box will help make the box stronger  – I recommend adding this if you are putting a small plant in the gift box or a heavy dessert.

Step Seven: If your gift box will be holding a cupcake or mini plant, add the cupcake holder.

Step Eight: Fill and close the gift box. To close the gift box, slide a twig through the top or wrap a piece of bakers twine or ribbon around the top. The Greenhouse Gift Box is complete!!A paper greenhouse sits on a pile of coco with a flower cupcake inside it and next to it.

I love the way this gift box turned out. It is so fun seeing inside the box to the special treat inside. The flower cupcakes and cupcake liners worked perfectly! Last week the kids and I went to lunch with my mom and my aunt who was in town. It was the perfect little gift to bring along and a great way to say Happy Mother’s Day to two fabulous moms!
