Gift Box Instructions

1. Use a Silhouette machine to cut THIS box die from white cardstock. I enlarged it in my Silhouette software so the box FILLS the entire cutting mat (approximately 11.45" square). Use the score lines on the die cut to fold up the sides of the box.

2. Use adhesive to hold the box pieces in place. Place your gift(s) inside the box.

5. Wrap the black strip around the white box and adhere both ends on the bottom of the box (I kept the flaps on the box die cut on the bottom of the box).
