The Cutest Mail Box Gift Boxes!

Hi everyone, after sharing my Christmas Mail Box, I received many comments and messages asking to make another smaller version.

Rather than doing the exact same, I’ve decided to make this adorable version.

Adorable Mail Box Gift boxes

These cute gift boxes will hold 3 Lindor chocolates perfectly or any small gifts.

No specialty dies are needed and they are pretty straightforward to make too!

I’ve decorated these for Valentine’s Day, however, they will be perfect for Christmas with a ‘Santa’s Letters’ theme.


Love Letter stamp set available here.

The paper pad is an old one from The Range in-store only.

My Pink & Purple Scoreboard by Hunkydory is available here.


1 piece of 4.1/2 x 12 card for the main centre of the box.

Score along the 4.1/2 side at 1/2′ & 4′

Score along the 12′ side at 1/2′ & 3′ and then at 5.1/2 & 9.1/2 just to the first scoreline on both sides.

2 pieces of 2.1/2 x 4.1/2 card for the sides.

1 piece of 4′ x 8.1/2 card for the draw.

Score along the 4′ side at 2′

Score along the 8.1/2 side at 2′, 4′, 6 & 8′

1 piece of 2.1/2 x 2.1/4 and 2.1/4 x 2′ for the front of the draw.

2 pieces of 1/2′ x 2.1/2 for the draw stopper.

1 piece of 4.1/2 x 5.1/2 card for the base/stand.

Score at 1′ on all 4 sides.

You will also need to score along the 5.1/2 side at 1.1/2 & 4′ down 1/2′ and then at 1.1/2 & 3′, 1/2′ down along the 4.1/2 sides. Join up the scorelines as I show in the tutorial.

1 piece of 3/8 x 2′ card and 1/8 x 1.3/4 black card for the mail box slot.

1 piece of 1.1/2 x 1/4′ card for the handle, score at 1/4′ at each end.

3 strips of 1/4′ wide card for the decorative trim.

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