Cardstocks by CutCardStock is perfect for making these adorable gift boxes, especially the cover cardstocks they are great for sturdy boxes.
Step 1: Prepare a cardstock by referring to the measurement details as shown on the Memory Keeper Gift Box Punch board. In this tutorial, a 8 x 8 cardstock will be used to make a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 x 1 3/4″ box. Score and punch according to the instruction explained on the board. Fold along lines to form a box.
Step 2: Take a decorative die and place it in the middle of the scored cardstock in Step 1. Run the cardstock and die through a die-cut machine. Prepare a clear acetate (any plastic packaging can be used for this step) and adhere to the inside of the box (behind the circle) with double-sided tapes, as shown in pictures above.
Step 3: Die-cut a paper bow using any bow dies you have.
Step 4: Make a band for the box where the bow sits on. Using the same punch board, punch notches on both sides of the band as shown in picture above. Place the bow on top of the punched notches and done.
