Create a Paper Plate Gift Box

I’ve seen things like this online and thought that it would be fun to try.  I have some really amazing friends here in the mountains, and thought that these would be fun to make for them.  They were pretty easy to make, and could be decorated in any way that you see fit!  You could also make mini ones for a bridal, or baby shower.

You could add anything you want to these, and even use colored plates for a specific theme.  They were pretty easy to make, and fun to decorate.  What do you think of them – do you think that it’s something that you would enjoy making?  Let me know in the comments below.

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks!!

Create a Paper Plate Gift Box


Materials/Tools Used:

  • Paper Plate
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Misc. Decor
  • & Time!

Instructions:

I started by drawing some lines on the paper plate.  The will be on the inside, and almost hidden, so you really don’t have to worry about them being on there…but it’s nice to try and make them light.  Two (2) of the lines are about 1/2″ from the edge of the middle, and the other two (2) are about 1.5″.  You’ll see why in the next few steps.

Next, I cut on the most narrow sides to just the center line.  I did this for only the two (2) sides, not cutting the lines of the larger area.

After that, I bent and creased the sides where I had cut, using the lines as my guide.

Next, I bent the parts that I didn’t cut, and folded in the flaps.

After I had folded it all together, I then taped the flap pieces to the bottom of the box.  Be sure to have the small area that you had cut inserted inside. Do this on both sides.  You might also want to add some tape to the inner corners to help with the inside stay together better.

I then used some craft ribbon to run around the box, for some added decoration.  Just glue or add tape where it comes together to secure it.

After I had the ribbon finished, I glued some greenery to hide the part where the ribbon came together.

I then filled it up with some cookies, and can’t wait to surprise some friends!  I hope you like it!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment, and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc.  Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thank you!!
