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!

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  6. I am also having trouble printing. I love this template and can’t wait to use it. But when I print, I only get the words at the top of the document. No house or wreath. :( Any help would be greatly appreciated…

  11. 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!

  14. s better to use whole foods made from scratch for
    good health. Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be
    done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved.

    Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.

  15. 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 :)

  16. The internet is fueling the success of music because it can be listened to at any time of the day and anywhere in the world.
    Regular workshops ensure that the staff at PVM Radio subdivision is not only up to
    date with the latest technological innovations, but also ensures that the
    customers from diverse backgrounds are offered the best possible services to suit
    their tastes. Whats more is that 2G phones can come in a tinier and slimmer package, even its
    batteries.

  17. 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.

  18. These boxes are adorable.. Think about designing one as a barn…I have a farm in the U.S.A. and would love that…
