One of my favorite paper crafts is the little flip-top message box I designed for Mother’s Day a while back. I’ve since transformed it into a Father’s Day box and a Thanksgiving box– each one with graphics that can be used for any occasion. Today, I’m sharing a new design and some fun contents for Christmas using faded red and evergreen colors and sweet vintage artwork. Click on the box template image to download the free printable. On it I’ve included small office-style labels, choice of insert, a little note card, and a tag.
Print to cardstock for crafting and refer back to the original message box post for folding and gluing instructions. This time around, I used a stylist and scoring board to score the fold lines of the box, it worked out great!
For gift labels, print them to full sheet label stock and trim out. Click on the image below to download the free file.
And finally, a full sheet of Christmas seals in two color combinations for adding to gifts and envelopes! These were designed to fit 1-inch label sheets from WorldLabel.com, or their full sheet label stock for hand trimming.
Go to the WorldLabel.com blog for the free Christmas seal file downloads and many, many more wonderful free printables!Use the crafted box to hold the tags and seals for yourself, or as a small gift to someone special to use in their gift packaging. Plain kraft paper or butcher paper is all you need for wrapping gifts when embellishing with cute tags, labels and ribbon! I think boxed sets of gift tags and labels would make excellent teacher gifts.
I cut the Christmas seals into sections of 6 to fit into the box. You can also fill your box with many other goodies like wrapped treats, a stack of message cards, even a store or money gift card tucked in with tissue or shredded paper.
