Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve done an unusual gift box, so today I have these awesome Star Gift Boxes.
When I made these a few weeks ago I was unsure whether to hold them back for Christmas in July or even until later in the year and use them in my Christmas Series but I decided to share them now as I have lots of Christmas projects already planned and I already have other ideas for these star gift boxes.
These open from the top in the same way as a pillow box and are surprisingly very roomy.
To make these 5 point stars you will need…
I recommend you first make a template by drawing an 8″ or 20cm diameter circle on some scrap old card.
2 pieces of your chosen pattern cardstock with 8″ or 20cm diameter circles drawn on both.
You can make these circles by using a compass set to either 4″ or 10cm
Then set your compass again to 4.5/8 or 12cm and mark your 5 points around the edge of each circle, as shown in my template and video below.
Ignore the red markers.
To create the 5 curved sides I used my trusty Xcut Cutting System.
Ribbon and a sentiment of your choice, the sentiment I used are from Dovecraft and available from eBay.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.
The trick to making these is precision, so don’t rush these and make sure you have 8″ circles and all your measurements are spot on! 🙂
I hope you have fun with today’s tutorial and give them a go, as I mention in my tutorial I have more shapes to share with you as well as different sizes so look out for them.
Have a wonderful weekend.
