I like to have little gifts on hand, this time of the year. These are perfect to make up in advance and have ready whenever you'd like to spread a little cheer. We wrapped chocolates in rudolf-red tissue for this example.
Box, twigs, 2 google eyes, red pompom nose and treats.
Supplies:Brown CartonPDF Template for pyramid box, here
Print template (here.) Cut or trace onto heavy brown card stock. Score and fold. Assemble. (I've found that using a glue gun makes the process to fast but, ordinary glue works, too. If you have heavier content, re-enforce the box in the interior with tape.) Once the box is complete, fill as desired. We've wrapped chocolates in red tissue paper playing on the Rudolf theme. I like the warm splash of color, too, that comes when one opens the present.
Using an x-acto knife, piece a criss-cross into the sides of the triangle (like above, right). Slide the base of the twig into the criss-cross to secure the twig antlers on both sides. If you need to give these extra support, tape these twigs from the inside. Place three dots of glue on the face area of the box: two for the eyes and one for the nose and place the eyes and red, pompom nose. Once this is complete, Rudolf is ready for gift giving.
These are great gift wraps, party gift boxes, crafts, place cards for the kid's Christmas table or as a decorations! We plan to make up some gift trees dusted with glitter for presents, too (here).
