EASY WAYS | How to make a Large Reinforced Gift Box!

Hello friends, I’m always being asked to make larger and stronger gift boxes and bags so I made this reinforced 11′ x 4′ x 4′ gift box.

I worked the size around a gift I had. This will hold bottles of liquid, candles, tools, and many other heavy gifts.

I used the fabric paper I picked up from the Creative Craft Show to cover the lid, along with huge Nuvo drops for some fun dimension.

My little Gingerbread dies matched perfectly!

SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THIS GIFT BOX

Unfortunately, I’m unable to find the fabric paper I used. Kraft-Tex on Amazon has some colourful Kraft paper.

The Nuvo drops are available here.

My card stock was from Lidl supermarket in-store only.
