Free Printable Gift Boxes

I was totally going to be done with holiday posts, but couldn’t resist offering these free printable gift boxes. I think they qualify as non-holiday, because they are great for year-round gifts too! Anyway, I made these originally to box some small gifts for my brothers, and then decided to turn them into files that you can download and use for your own gifts.

These simple free printable gift boxes are perfect for small gifts. I made them the largest I could on a letter size paper while still keeping them on one sheet. They will generously fit small electronics such as flash drives and jewelry, are great for chocolates, and work as treat boxes too!

 

I used modern prints and patterns in a bold but neutral blue and yellow combination. It’s fresh and invigorating. I have a habit of veering toward plaids while designing with patterns, and I did it again here! I added a canvas texture to it for interest.

Anyway, I really and truly hope that you like these free printable gift boxes and make good use of them! You can print them as many times as you’d like (as long as it complies with the terms of use), and you can print each box separately, so that if you don’t like one of the prints, you can skip it.

A big change I made on this design from my previous free printables is that I did not add bleed. Bleed basically means that the design actually spills out of the “cut” area a little, so that if you don’t cut it accurately, there are no white lines around it. But that requires you to use a template to cut out the perimeter. So this time you can just use the template to score (instructions to follow) the folded parts, and then cut around the outline. See the step-by-step instructions below.

What you need to assemble these free printable gift boxes:

  • The printed files (get them here.) Print the colored files on card stock. The template can be on any paper. I recommend NOT scaling to fit your media, as scaling can differ between the printed file and the template, causing them to not align properly.
  • Craft knife
  • A good ruler (I like to use a metal one).
  • A surface for cutting on (as you’ll likely cut through and scratch/cut the surface below). I used a padded mailer,or you can use a cutting mat
  • Tacky glue, or something similar that glues paper nicely and holds in place. If you want to go neat and easy, washi tape in coordinating colors can look great. 
  • A pair of scissors.

 

How to assemble these free printable gift boxes: 

 

1. Tape the template in place over the print file (note: this image and the next is from my this post., not these gift boxes. I added it here so that you can see exactly what I mean.)Oh, these are so stinkin' cute - and you can print it for free!

2. Do this step before you cut out your box. SCORE on the dotted lines, using the back of your life. Do this by placing a ruler along the dotted line (to ensure you get a straight, clean line) and press on the template (through to the print layer) with the BACK of a craft knife (the dull side.) This destroys some of the fibers, making it fold nicer.Oh, these are so stinkin' cute - and you can print it for free!

3. You can now remove the template if you’d like. This is how a scored line looks. It’s creased and easier to bend, but not cut.

4. Cut out your box along the outline (look at your template as a visual guide too. In a few spaces, you need to cut into the box a little to “open up” flaps). You can also do this how I’ve done it other times – leaving your template in place, and cutting it out with a craft knife (see this post.)

Fold the box along the score lines so before you glue it.

5. Glue your box! There are two sets of narrow flaps – those glue to the bottom and sides of your box. Spread tacky glue on the flaps, and hold it in place for a few seconds to ensure that it sets.Download these FREE printable gift boxes for your holiday or year-round gift-giving needs!
