Let's take a look at the materials and tools for this project.
Easy Paper Crafts: Gift Box Gift Tag or Ornament Materials and Tools:
Paper - solid color for the "box" (for example, colored paper or construction paper) and decorative paper (for example, gift wrap paper) for the front
Yarn or string 8 inches long
Curling ribbon 1/4 inch wide by 12 inches long
Glue (I used a glue stick for the paper and liquid, school glue to attach the yarn and ribbon.)
Clothespin or binder clip to hold ribbon while the glue dries
Pattern - Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag Pattern
The Steps for How to Make the Easy Paper Crafts: Gift Box Gift Tag or Ornament:
Print and cut out the pattern pieces.
Fold the solid color paper and place the largest box shape with the labeled edge along the folded edge of the paper.
Cut around the edges of the box shape - except for the folded edge.
Position the four smaller shapes on the decorative patterned paper.
Cut around each of the four shapes.
Glue the four shapes to the front of the solid color box shape matching the edges.
Finish gluing all four of the shapes to the front of the Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag.
Trim the edges if necessary.
Fold the 8-inch piece of yarn in half.
Place a small amount of glue in the creased area.
Position the ends of the yarn over the glue.
Fold the shape to hold in place.
Fold the 12-inch piece of curling ribbon into three sections.
The sections do not need to be exact.
Hold the three sections together and tie a knot in the middle of the three ribbons.
Cut the folded ribbon such that there are three cut ends on either side of the knot.
Use the edge of the scissors to curl each of the six ribbon ends.
You may want to curl each ribbon end twice to make smaller curls.
Split each ribbon down its middle to form 12 narrow ribbon curls.
Place a dot of glue in the "X" area on the front of the box.
Clamp the knot of the ribbon on the dot of glue until the glue dries.
If you have a hot glue gun, you can use it instead of the liquid glue.
(Hot glue guns are great, I'm just not a fan of burned fingers and glue "hairs.")
After the glue dries, remove the clamp and fluff the ribbon curls.
Last step, address your Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag before adding it to your package.
Or, you can add the pretty little gift boxes to a Christmas tree.
The Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag is fun and easy and can be used on gifts for any occasion.
From children to adults, anyone will enjoy making this interesting Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag for gifts or as ornaments.
