Squash Box Gift Box

Here is a nice easy project for you today these fun Squash Boxes.


One sheet of card, a few score lines and finished with some ribbon.


I hand stamped my paper by using as many ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiments as I could find and just randomly stamped them all over the paper. I think the results are fab and it just shows you don’t need to always pay out for patterned papers.

To make these you will need…

11 x 8.1/4 card

Score along the 8.1/4 at 1.4, 2.1/4, 4.1/4 & 6.1/4 you also need to score at 3.1/4 & 7.1/4 along the 8.1/4 side but just down to 1.1/2, these two score lines will help the box squash as the ends.

Some ribbon

Velcro dots and a sentiment of your choice

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made these.




Hope you like this quick project.

Happy crafting.
