Father’s Day DIY Pillow Style Gift Box

My new gift wrapping video tutorial is for the Father’s Day (and any other occasions too!).

In the video tutorial, I will show you how to create a pillow shaped box from scratch using whatever paper design you like. This project is super easy to get really cool looking results.

Since it is a gift box you should choose a heavier and more durable paper. Heavy weight paper, card stock, magazine covers and product packages (cereal boxes, etc.) are perfect materials for making this style of box. Make it more personal by using magazine covers your husband or father reads or from a box of his favorite snack food.

Here is the template (Pillow Gift Box Template) used in the video. This creates a 4″ (width) x 6″ (height) x 1.5″ (depth), or 10cm x 15cm x 4cm, box. You can also shrink or enlarge the template to create a different size box if needed.

  • Double Sided Tape
