Last week, I brought you a fun set of color in gift boxes for kids. I did promise you an adult version, so here you go!
Coloring adult coloring pages can be fun, and I do offer some here on the blog.
But isn’t it more fun when you can make something 3 dimensional and functional?

I kept these relatively simple so that you can use them even if you are giving multiple gifts. They are small (so that they can fit on a single sheet of paper) and perfect for chocolates, jewelry, magnets, and other trinkets and small gifts.
I decided to go all out on this one and try a new twist. For one of the boxes, I tried some metallic accents using a gold paint marker. It added a great touch, though, with my toddler’s help, I wasn’t able to be too much of a perfectionist. Tip: test it outside the lines to make sure you have the right flow before coloring your boxes.
For the other, I just went with a fun, floral color scheme using markers for a bold, easy finish.
I think that this is a great way to add a personal touch to a gift! It’s free, easy, and so on-trend now.
How to assemble your color in gift boxes:
Assembly is super easy, as I’ve placed the markers directly onto the printed box:
- Print on cardstock (or your box won’t be worth much)
- Cut along the outside solid edge.
- Fold dotted lines inward
- Tape along the two front edges using invisible tape.
You can see step-by-step photo instructions on the kid version if you’d like.
Some pro tips:
- For a cleaner fold, you can score using the dull side of a craft knife and a ruler.
- Print on light colored cardstock for a fun alternative. Keep in mind, some color might show through.
- You can glue it shut using tacky glue if you’d like (it just takes a little longer – but it’s more discreet.)
