Gift-giving is one of the best ways to express our love and appreciation to the people we care about. Whether it’s for a special occasion or just a way to brighten someone’s day, gifts have the power to bring joy to both the giver and the receiver. However, finding the perfect gift is just the first step. Presenting it in an elegant and thoughtful way can elevate the entire experience. That’s where easy printable gift boxes come in.
Easy printable gift boxes are a great way to add a personal touch to your gift-giving. They’re simple to make, customizable, and can be used for a variety of occasions. All you need is a printer, some cardstock paper, scissors, and glue. With these basic materials, you can create beautiful gift boxes that will make your gift stand out from the rest.
There are many different templates available online for printable gift boxes. Some are simple and straightforward, while others are more complex and intricate. You can choose a template that matches the theme or style of your gift, or you can use one that reflects your own personal taste.
One of the great things about printable gift boxes is that they can be customized in so many different ways. You can use different types of paper to create a variety of textures and colors. You can also add embellishments like ribbons, stickers, or even small ornaments to make the gift box even more special.
Printable gift boxes are also a great way to reduce waste and save money.

How to assemble the box
Once you’ve chosen your gift box template, it’s time to print it out and get to work. Follow the instructions carefully, cutting along the dotted lines and folding the paper where indicated. You may need to use some glue (glue stick or glue gun) or tape to hold the edges together, but most printable gift boxes are designed to be folded and assembled without any additional tools or materials.
- Download and print the template you want to use. We recommend using card stock and you can find our favorite card stock in the supplies section, up above.
- Using scissors or an x-acto knife (aka craft knife), cutting mat, and metal ruler, cut along the solid exterior lines of the template. I find it’s easiest to use an x-acto knife for precision.
- Fold along the interior fold lines to form the edges of the box. This is where the metal ruler comes in especially handy as a scoring tool for making sharp, straight folds.
- Use tape to secure the box flaps, preferable taping inside of the box, if needed.
