Terrarium Gift Box

Here's a cute little gift box that channels the trend for succulents and projects in South West colours. The slot-close box resembles a sand-painted terrarium - retro fun. Just the right size for a small treat.

Here are your freebie print-and-cut files, cut by hand, or digi-cut with a Silhouette machine:

Terrarium Gift Box

To make up:
1 Print onto photocopier card.
2 Score the fold lines with a fine-point embossing tool held against a small metal ruler.
3 If cutting by hand, cut the slots first. Alternatively, digi-cut with a Silhouette machine.
4 Crease the folds. Join the side tab to make a ring, then join the bottom tabs to the base. Use tacky PVA glue or d/s tape.
5 To close the box, slide apex tabs into adjacent slots.
6 The tag is optional. Tie it through a slot before closing the box.
