Make a big dramatic statement with little paper boxes. They’re perfect for those times when you need to add a little flair to a small gift for a friend or loved one. They even make great little wedding favor boxes. Make one out of wrapping paper, an old magazine, scrapbook paper, sheet music or a even a discarded picture book from the library. Any kind of paper will work. Pop in a little handmade treat to make your friends feel extra special because not only did you make the gift, but you even made the box it came in. No one needs to know how easy these little boxes are to make. Your secret is safe with me.
Scroll to the bottom to watch my latest ehow video. I still have to pinch myself every time I make one. I love making them for you!!! (Be sure to turn up the music because I worked super hard to get everything to match the beat. 🙂 And Cooper told me that he thought the finger snap was pretty cool. 🙂 )

VERY COOL B, glad to see you are making good use of your time!! AND, nice to see our gifts being so nicely show “cased”.;-)
Oh I’m so glad you liked it, Tom!!! And I LOVE the bracelet!!!
Cute boxes make great dividers for drawers and can be made from calendar pages
Both GREAT ideas Linda! Thank you for sharing!
I made these as a child out of wallpaper sample book pages, then we went around selling them for nickels, dimes, or quarters! I have very fond memories of them! Thanks for reminding me of them.
Oh how fun to have made these as a child, Elisa. Then to be able to sell them, what a great memory!!!
WOW – Brilliant!!
I have a dollhouse full of furniture and household items that the grandkids have outgrown. I want to make “packing boxes” as if the household was moving and pack all the stuff away. These will be perfect! I plan to make them out of plain brown paper and print address labels with the contents. The house itself breaks down into flat pieces to save until the next generation!
Oh what a wonderful idea, Bonnie. How fun to be the one to “discover” this in the future!
Hey I really like your article. Keep it up!
Thank you Jennifer!
