How to Make Personalized Gift Box

Everyone loves to receive gifts -- kids, teens, adults. and yes, even the aged.

Wrapping a gift is an art. The easiest and most convenient way to do it, however, is to simply buy ready-made, same designed bags and boxes that are available almost anywhere.

But how about setting aside some minutes in making a personalized box or bags to place your gifts in? Not only will the receiver appreciate it because of the time and effort you put in making it; it will also enhance your creativeness.

For a starter, try this simple yet love-filled creation.


  • Flip-top-box (big enough to hold your surprises)

  • Color papers

  • Pictures of receiver's favorite items from old newspapers

  • 1/2 x 4 in. color ribbon

  • Fancy ribbon for bow

  • Scissors

  • Construction paper for the card

  • Glue, tape, color pens or pencils

  • Chocolates, candies, cute novelty items, or anything that serves as your gift.


  1. Wrap your box with color paper.

  2. Decorate box with pictures.

  3. Cut out hearts. Glue one to top end of 1/2 x 4 in. ribbon. Write "pull string, please" on the heart.

  4. Tape your surprises -- chocolates, candies, etc - on ribbon with hearts as background.

  5. Write your Valentine message on a personally made card from a construction paper. Glue card to bottom end of ribbon. Wait for glue to dry.

  6. Put your string of surprises inside the box, card first.

  7. Tape glued heart-on-string to flip-top of box. Close the box.

  8. Tie box with fancy bow.
