It's a wrap

Posted by  ·  September 30, 2008  ·  Last Updated: May 23, 2016

I love boxes and fun ways to wrap gifts.  Here are a few links!

Download this template and print on patterned card stock.  Cut on solid lines then lightly score on dotted lines to make a pillow box. These boxes are great when you are in a pinch and need something quick.

Cool fabric baskets

fun cereal gift boxes

These darling printed cone boxes double as ornaments for your tree

Recycled greeting card box

Classy gift box —actually made from a recycled cereal box

A little girl or your girlfriends would love something special package in this cute purse box

boxes made from inside out cereal boxes

Wouldn’t these cute Elf Shoes make a cute container for a small gift?

…and so that all of your handmade gifts are tied up with the prettiest tags, Cassi of Bella Dia has made it easy with the Free Gift Tag Round-Up!

Some of my favorite gift tags are from Sugarloop
