Tall(ish) Reinforced Gift Box

Hello again 🙂

Today’s project are these handy sized tall(ish) reinforced gift boxes.


I’m in love with these “Love Santa” papers by Docrafts Papermania and I’m now at the end of my pack. I purchased them for a bargain at Hobbybase UK however they are now sold out in the 12 x 12 and only have the 6 x 6 pad and A4 die cut papers left which I will link to below.

I love reinforced boxes and try and make them wherever possible.


To make these you will need…

1 piece of 12 x 12 paper for the base get mine here.

Score along the 12″ side at 2.7/8 & 7.1/2

Score along the other side at 2.7/8, 5.3/4, 8.5/8 & 11.1/2

1 piece of 6.7/8 x 6.7/8 paper for the lid.

Score along the 6.7/8 side at 1″, 2″ then pull the paper out slightly and score again at 5″ & 6″ repeat these score lines on the other 6.7/8 side.

Embellishments and a tag to decorate I used the matching “Love Santa” Christmas lights and tags.

 2 pieces of 8″ ribbon.

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

This is a great size and a good style to have on hand for any occasion.


I love the ribbon wrapped around the lid and the detail with the mini Christmas lights.

Thank you for stopping by and I will see you Friday for my last Christmas project.
