VIP Thank You Gift Box Tutorial and Process Video

During this month I am celebrating my 5th year with Close To My Heart. I knew I wanted to send a little something to thank those customers who have supported my business all these years as well as being a part of the VIP Program with me through Close To My Heart. I came up with this cute "pizza box style" gift box that I put a sticky note holder, a Petite Perks stamp set, and a pen in to send to them with my thanks.

I am including a link to a downloadable PDF with instructions as well as a process video at the end of this blog post. The PDF contains cutting diagrams along with more detailed instructions on the cutting, preparation, and assembly of this gift box.

I designed this to be like a pizza box in that the base, lid and sides all fold in together to form the box. For this box you will need 1 piece of 12" x 12" cardstock, a 12" trimmer, scoring blade and/or platform, scissors, and strong adhesive. Cut the cardstock to 11" wide by 10 3/4" tall. Score according to the following diagram.

After scoring cut away the areas shown in grey on the following diagram and cut to the score lines as shown to create the tabs. I also cut the lid sides corners at an angle to make it easier to close.

Fold along the score lines. Add strong adhesive to the front side of the box on the tabs as shown. Add strong adhesive to the back side of the box on the side outer sections as shown.

Remove the backing from the adhesive on the tabs and fold behind the sides. Remove the back from the adhesive from the side outer sections and fold over to hide the tabs and add extra stability to the box base. To close, tuck the lid sides inside the box.

I added a sticky note holder as a treat inside the box. To create this cut a piece of cardstock to 6 3/4" x 3 1/8". Score at 3 1/8" and 3 5/8". Fold along score line and adhere a sticky note pad inside.

Decorate the box and sticky note holder with patterned paper and stamped images. Fill with some treats or gifts!
