Make It: Shirt & Tie Gift Box
Surprising the men in your life with a little treat this Father’s Day? Whether it be baked goods or a new tie, we love the idea of using Paper Crave’s Shirt & Tie Gift Box DIY as the gift wrap! The box itself is adorable. And as we have an array of wrap styles in the studio, we thought it would be a good idea to see what “outfits” we could come up with. We think they turned out rather stylish! – Julie
What You’ll Need
– gift box template + bow tie / necktie template (via Paper Crave)
– a printer
– cardstock for the box and tie(s) (We used K&B wrapping paper)
– a ruler
– a pen or pencil
– double-sided tape
– 1/4 inch circle hole punch (optional)
– a scoring tool (optional)
– a cutting mat (optional)
1. Print the box template onto lightweight cardstock, cut out along the solid lines, and assemble according to the directions found in the template file.
2. Print bow tie/necktie templates, cut out, and trace onto your choice of patterned or solid colored paper. Cut out the tie(s) and attach to the box flap using double stick tape or glue dots. If making the bow tie box, punch out three 1/4 inch “buttons” using a hole punch (we freehanded this part), and attach to the front of the box.
3. Add your gift!
* We wanted to add a gift tag of some sort and opted to make a little pocket square tag. Looks pretty sharp, don’t you think?
