Do you ever find yourself with a few small, odd shaped, Christmas gifts that you need to wrap?
I know some people are a whizz with wrapping paper and they can wrap any shaped item, no matter how irregular, but I can’t. I always manage to put holes in the wrapping paper and the gift ends up looking like a total mess. So I’ve given up trying to wrap irregular shaped gifts, instead I am using fabirc gift bags, or these adorable little print and fold Christmas gift boxes.
These little gift boxes are easy to make and they are the perfect size for a small gift.
You can make these origami Christmas gift boxes out of almost any paper or light card. They look lovely made from an interesting page from a magazine, or try printing out a photograph to fold into a box. They are also a great way to reuse your kid’s artwork, and family and friends will love receiving a gift wrapped in a special piece of art!

How to Make a Folded Christmas Gift Box
To make a folded paper gift box you’ll need two pieced of square paper or card, one slightly (.5 of a cm all round) larger than the other. The larger piece will become the lid of the box, and smaller piece the bottom.
To save on measuring and cutting, scroll down to the bottom of this post and download our free print and fold Christmas gift box templates. Once you have downloaded and unzipped the files simply print the template for the top of the box (topback), then turn it over, choose a design for the top of your box and print that on the other side. Follow the same steps for the bottom of your box, cut out the squares and you are ready to fold.
Follow the step by step folding instructions below:
