The Christmas Folding Box

A witty Christmas wrapping can be just as valuable to the person receiving a gift, as the gift itself Apart from the Christmas gift, our Christmas folding box consists of a note, hand-written with a fountain pen that spreads the spirit of Christmas. Curious? Then let’s get started – with our easy-to-use download templates it is no problem at all!

This is what you need:
A fountain pen for inscribing, the Pelikan download templates, Pelikan colored paper to print out on, white paper to print out the label, a pair of scissors and string. If in reach: A star and motif puncher.

Hint: If you should need a larger box, it is no problem at all. Just enlarge our download template to the size you need. This way you can adjust the size of the folding box.

This is how it works:

  1. First, print out the downloaded template on a piece of colored paper:
    1. the Christmas folding box on colored paper ( the download templates consist of a box with printed folding lines and one without lines)
    2. the label on white paper
  1. Cut out the download templates along the lines marked with arrows.

  1. Now fold the box along the marked lines. In order to give the folding box the right shape, only fold the outer edges upwards. The marked bottom of the box should not be folded. You can orient yourself by the marked folding areas.
  1. Now you can use the motif puncher to punch a nice decoration along the top edge to the present box. Alternatively, you can cut hole with a pair of scissors or you can use a regular hole punch, if you like.
  1. Then loom a piece of string through the holes. By pulling the string tight, you can close the box easily, later on.

This way, the surprise will be a success:

  1. Finally, inscribe the label as you like and place it inside the Christmas folding box along with your gift. Then pull the string together tightly and tie it together to a ribbon.
