First, I printed all four papers on one 16.5 × 23.4 paper and this time I used Tecco’s Digital Photo 330 Gallery Board paper (it’s a little bit thick, but that’s all I had at the time). Then I simply cut the paper in four pieces.

Then following the instructions on the YouTube video, I assembled the first box – it turned out really cool Smiley

Now, that looked cool! I was really impressed with the results! Then, I cut a little piece of a shiny red cloth. This cloth will save my Christmas tree glass ornament from breaking and it will make my gift look much cooler Smiley


Backgrounds are available on my blog Smiley

Nice! Could you please change your direction to "my blog" to the specific post with the backgrounds? So it doesn't get too hard to find as more blog posts are entered Cheesy

I've made these gift boxes with old Christmas cards for years.  I found that instead of folding the paper on the diagonal to make the center point, instead draw two intersecting lines on the back of the paper so that you have the same point to work with but no creases in the final product.  The lines will be completely covered up under the folded paper, so they won't show at all.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

Those turned out cute!

Yep, blog links are okay providing there is additional project information here on Craftster, and the link goes directly to where the project is. More info on this here: http://www.craftster.org/craftsterguide.html#anchor9j1

However, web addresses should not be on pictures, only names. So if you could edit those, that would be fabulous! Smiley

Yeah, the new link is great Smiley I'll probably be taking advantage of your great graphics this winter Cheesy
I don't know what phizz means by "not on pictures only names"? The link looks correct to me Smiley

Your pictures can only have a name on them as a watermark, not the actual website address (the .com part)
