Tall Ribbon Tied Gift Box

Hi everyone, today’s project is this Tall Ribbon Tied Gift Box.


I ended up using these to hold some tall heavy candles. With the reinforced base and lid, these are perfect for heavier items.


To make these you will need…

2 pieces of 8.1/4 x 8.1/4 card.

First pull your card slightly away from the side of your board and score along the 8.1/4 side at 4″ the push the card back in and score again at 7.7/8.

2 pieces of 8 x 8 card for your lid and base.

Score both pieces at 1″, 2″, 6″ & 7″ on both sides. You will need to hole punch one of these pieces, I used my favourite Xcut Screw Punch

4 pieces of 3.5/8 x 5.7/8 patterned paper to decorate the box. My papers were purchased from The Works UK. I’ve found similar papers here.

4 pieces of 27″ length ribbon. My ribbon was from The Range UK.

Matching card and paper to make a matching tag.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I put them all together.



This is a pretty simple looking box but by adding the ribbon the way I have I think it transforms it.

Hope you enjoy making today’s project.

  1. Hi Sam, this is another great 3D project of yours. I love both colour combos but my utmost favourite has to be the Kraft and black, so classy looking. I love ‘The Works’ too in the UK and it is great if you can get the craft stock if it is available. It looks like you may have bought quite a lot to take back home with you. Thank you for sharing this project with us crafters. :O)

    1. Thank you Lorraine, the Works is great as they sell a lot of good quality stuff and sometimes have discontinued lines from branded UK companies. It’s great for crafters who are just starting up or who have a budget, because there are always such good bargains. As always I have lots to bring back! 😬
