DIY Paper Gift Boxes

Most people try not to judge a book by it’s cover, but when it comes to receiving a gift, it’s almost impossible!  I would say that a gift’s wrapping is really almost half of the gift!  I know, that percentage my be a stretch but if you think about when you’ve received a gift, before you even open it you have feelings based on the packaging.

For example, if I had two identical gifts before me, but one was wrapped in a Wal-Mart sack and the other was nestled in a wicker basket filled with paper shavings, wrapped with cellophane, and tied at the top with a satin blue ribbon, I would choose the package in the basket hands down.  I think it’s safe to say most people would.

You can make a gift appear to be expensive and thoughtful just be putting some time and effort into the wrapping of it.  I was so excited when my friend Tammy taught us to make these cute paper gift boxes at a MOMs Bible study about a year ago.  I went home that day and made a ton more!  They’re easy to make and are a great way to package small gifts such as money, gift cards, or candy.
