3D Paper Pie Slice Gift Boxes πŸ‚ Thanksgiving Crafts

Hi everyone! I’ve got a fun papercraft tutorial for you this week, these pie themed gift boxes! We’re making a pumpkin pie box, a “traditional” pie box, and a lattice pie box!

These would be fun gifts for your Thanksgiving dinner guests, or for just about any occasion during Christmas and the holiday season. They are easy and quick to make (the lattice one is a bit more tricky) and great for filling with candy, treats, or other small gifts.

Click the image below to watch the tutorial:

 

Materials:

  • Card stock – you’ll want paper that has some weight to it for this.
  • Score tool (or an old pen that doesn’t write)
  • Ruler
  • Glue (I like using hot glue for this, but use whatever you prefer!)
  • Scissors

 

Here are the patterns:

You’ll need the main pie box pattern for all of the pie styles, in addition to the decoration pattern for whichever pie you want to make.

3D Coffee Cup Paper Gift Box Tutorial!

Hi everyone! I have a really fun tutorial for you this week! Now that it’s October, pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolates are everywhere. I’m always trying to think up fun gift box ideas, and I got thinking, why not create a coffee cup gift box design!

Click the image below to watch the tutorial:

I think these turned out so cute and fun! It’s one of my favorite gift boxes I’ve made so far! Put a Starbucks (or any other coffee place) gift card inside, and it makes the perfect gift for coffee lovers (or hot chocolate lovers)! This would also make a great gift for a teacher who loves coffee!

 

Materials:

  • Card stock or other heavy paper in 3 colors (you’ll want to use heavy paper for this)
  • Hot glue (you can always try other types of glue, but you’ll need something with a very strong, quick hold)
  • Score tool (or an old pen that no longer writes)
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

As you are assembling the box, be sure to “stretch” the sides around the bottom of the cup as much as you can, everything needs to fit tightly together.

3D Paper Trophy Treat Holder for Father’s Day!

 

Hi everyone! In my latest tutorial, we’re kicking off the Father’s Day crafts with this 3D paper trophy! Although this trophy is made of paper, it’s pretty sturdy and just the right size to hold small gifts or candy, or would even work as a gift on its own. I designed this with Father’s Day in mind, but it would of course work for other occasions, or even as a party favor.

This isn’t the quickest project, but the most time consuming part of this is just cutting out all the pieces. The bottom part of the trophy will require some small folds and careful glueing, but it’s definitely do-able.

Materials:

  • Card stock or other heavy paper – this is a project that won’t work too well with thin, regular paper, especially if you will be putting candy or a gift inside – it won’t be strong enough. Gold colored card stock works best! You’ll need two colors of paper.
  • Scoring tool – you’ll need some sort of tool to score the fold lines. I use a Cricut scoring stylus, but an old pen that doesn’t write will work also.
  • Hot glue – you can try other adhesives if you don’t have hot glue, but I always find that it works best because it sets so fast and strong, which is necessary for this project.
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler – to assist with scoring lines.

3D Paper Tea Cup For Mother’s Day!

 

 

Hi everyone! I’ve been really loving three dimensional paper projects lately, and in this new tutorial, I’m back with another one – a paper tea cup for Mother’s day! (or any other occasion!) These are so cute and an especially fun gift for anyone who loves tea. In the video, I filled mine with tea packages but the tea cup could hold candy or small gifts also!

Click the image below to watch the video:

 

Materials:

  • Card stock (heavier weight paper should be used for this, it will make it much stronger)
  • Glue (I used a glue gun, but other adhesives such as Tacky glue or a glue stick should work)
  • Ribbon (works best if it’s 1/8″ width or thinner)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
