I’m so pleased with this little project! I collaborated with Jordan of Polkadot Prints to design a darling house-shaped gift box that is as easy as pie to put together. You’ll want to make one for neighbors, postal workers, teachers — pretty much everyone you know!
Simply print off the free template, cut it out and double-side tape it together.
Fill your house gift boxes with a few small treats and your gift-giving list is done in a flash!
SUPPLIES FOR YOUR HOUSE GIFT BOXES:
-Printable house template
-Ruler & scoring tool
Print the house gift box template. Cut out the house and wreath.
If you prefer, use the X-acto knife to cut out the window panes. The box will still be perfectly cute if the panes aren’t cut. : )
With the ruler and scoring tool, score the house template on all the dotted lines.
Fold on the newly scored lines.
Add a piece of double-sided tape to the small tab.
Connect it with the other side of the house, as seen above.
Fold the bottom flaps in and use double-sided tape to hold it closed.
Add a piece of tape to the backside of the wreath and stick it in place.
Fill the house gift boxes with a few small treats or a small gift. Add one more piece of tape to the top flaps and pinch the roof closed.
Give to all!
THESE HOUSE GIFT BOXES WOULD ALSO BE GREAT FOR:
– Christmas party favors
– Teachers, delivery persons, newspaper delivery person, neighbors…the list goes on!
– Schoolmates! They are the perfect size for little hands.
P.S. — We love making gifts! You can find all the posts in this series here.

So cute! I need to remind myself to make these as an advent calender next year!
Great idea!! Might have to do that myself. :)
This couldn’t be more perfect timing. Milo’s last day of pre-school before Christmas is tomorrow and I’ve been stumped about little teacher gifts! I’m printing these right now, filling them with Lindt chocolates, and saying “Merry Christmas” Design-Mom-Style!
Fabulous..printing this off for friends of my kiddos. How sweet!
These are truly lovely! I love the commenters advent calendar idea above.

So cute! And the perfect size for the milk man and the post woman!
Love that you have a milk man. :)
I am thrilled that my laser printer cold print on heavier card stock to make these boxes! I don’t have a scoring tool, but I have an old tool for transferring sewing patterns that worked like a charm. (A spiked wheel that you run along the paper.) I plan to bake biscotti this weekend and give them away in these boxes! I’d love to scale it larger and take it to the printer to make larger boxes too. Thank you for inspiring me.
I would love to see this larger as well. More room for treats!
Thank you very much for the easy template!

I LOVE THEM!!! Thank you so much for sharing! :))
LOVE this! The template is adorable. Thank you so much. I am going to use them as a craft for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. Instead of the wreath, I punched out a circle that says “Grace’s House”. I put one together on pink cardstock as a test to see if it would strike her interest. She loved it. She got her stickers and markers out right away and decorated it. Grace’s party is next weekend. I will take pictures!
What a cute idea! I’d love to see pictures!

Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.
Awww this is taking me back to my high school years when I used to borrow a lot of origami books from the library and create different boxes, pop-up greeting cards, etc. Have not done any of it in the last 10 years!
Your ‘house gift box’ is very creative :)

You might need heavier line and tackle to account
for powerful river flows. One of the benefits of fishing is that it is not physically demanding.
Most of the fishable water in the upper river
is boulder runs in deep canyons and it is scenic.
These boxes are adorable.. Think about designing one as a barn…I have a farm in the U.S.A. and would love that…
