Flower Kraft Boxes {tutorial}

Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had a little incident with our front door! haha! Buuuut I’m happy to say that we now have a front door again. Yay! So it all worked out. ;) It’s the 2nd Monday of the month which means it time for another Silhouette Challenge. Yay! This month the theme is flowers. At the end of this post I’ll have links to almost 30 different flower projects made by some of your favorite bloggers & their Silhouettes. One of my favorite things to make with my Silhouette are the 3D boxes. They are perfect for gift giving. Today I’m going to show you how I made these sweet little flower kraft boxes. So keep reading! :)flower kraft boxes from #SihouetteCAMEO #SilhouettePortrait #tutorial

For this project you’ll need a few supplies:
kraft paper
a Silhouette
hot glue & glue gun
Elmer’s X-TREME glue stick
wrapped chocolate candy
images from the Silhouette online store {download here, here & here}
trim & scoring board & scoring tool (optional)*

*You can get 20% off this trim & scoring board when you use the code GINGER & shop here.

First you’ll cut out your boxes using your Silhouette. I used my Portrait. Tip: If you score the lines on your boxes to make them a whole lot easier to fold. ;)

  1. Ginger, your little boxes are adorable! And yum...your pictures reminded me that I have chocolates that were given to me yesterday still to enjoy! Your children have lucky teachers to be remembered so sweetly. When I use files for boxes and other things that need folded, I definitely prefer to remove the scoring cut lines and use my scoreboard instead...I think it looks cleaner...and it does fold easier, as well!

  2. I don't know what I like better - the amazing little boxes you made, or the candies you put inside! What a treat for your kids to give these to their teachers. I love the little button add on!

  3. These are great, Ginger. I'm particularly fond of the short, squatty pillow box -- I'd never seen this variation, so thank you for sharing it.

  4. Love anything in craft paper! So cute! I need to get it together and do the next challenge!

  5. These are so pretty! I can think of some little girls who would love some treats in these! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Ginger,
    Adore your boxes! I'm hosting a bridal shower for my niece this summer and I think I just found the favor boxes. :) Thanks.

  7. Cute, cute, cute! Love these and they're perfect for any kind of party since you can change up how you decorate them to match any occasion. Pinning!

  8. Love how simple these are but they look great!

  9. Two of my favorite things.... flowers and craft cardstock . I love your little gift boxes.

  10. These flower craft boxes are so cute. They are simple and so beautiful at the same time. Perfect for little presents! Thanks for the tutorial. Pinned.
