Bespoke Box for Gift (Video)

I needed to make a gift box to place a gift for people I’m rooming in for OnStage Local in Sydney next weekend, I think my Bespoke Box for Gift will do the trick.

Now there’s lots of photos and the video, so I hope you like it. I would be interested to read your comments.

This was my first which was made before the video. I explain my process in the video too. Here’s the top view:

I haven’t trimmed the ribbon yet as I’m not sure whether to add another bit around the box and then tie on top. What do you think?

Thanks for watching today.
If you gave me a thumbs up or subscribed, thanks so much. I appreciate your support.

That Metallic Edged Berry Burst Ribbon is great and really lifts the colours in this box, don’t you think? The boxes are quite easy to make once you work out the template and measurements.


  • Use some scrap paper or brown paper to make a template before cutting into your designer Series Paper
  • Measure the length of you item and add the ‘width’ plus 1/2″ or 13 cm to the top and bottom if you want the box to open and shut
  • Work out the width by starting with 1/2″ or 1.3 cm for the tab to place the Tear & Tape Adhesive on to close the box
  • Wrap the scrap/brown paper around the tube creasing as you go and this will give you the measurements and score lines for the width
  • Use good quality Designer Series Paper like Stampin’ Up! and good quality coordinating ribbon
