Perfect packaging for small gifts and stocking stuffers

What a cute way to wrap small gifts… specially those standby gifts for unexpected visitors, or small tokens of appreciation to  delivery drivers, colleagues etc.

  • candy
  • cookies
  • silk scarf
  • perfume/cologne
  • stocking stuffers
  • Blind bag toys
  • jewelry
  • lipstick
  • tree decoration
  • cash
  • Craft Supplies  .. and so much more

This is a great one sheet cut design… only one seam to glue or tape; really quick to cut and assemble…   tie  off the end, stuff, tie off the other end… and decorate as desired.  I actually added a reinforcement band  to mine, for looks and because it will be holding something a bit bulky.  Of course you can make these in any size you want, you can supersize it by splitting the design and using two glue tabbed sections instead and cutting each one on a larger sheet.

Fab way to wrap up  paint brushes, crafters pens and pencils, ink pads, embossing powders, stamps and other small items.  I like to hide presents on the tree as well as under it, so this is perfect for people like me  who like to keep a few hidden presents in plain sight.  These look to be the perfect size for those seasonal stamps at Michaels which we usually grab for the little guys collection.  Fimo Polymer clays would be fun in something like these too… and I bet this would be fab for making small craft kit gifts for kids too.  So many uses 🙂

This is a CraftsUPrint file by Rae Carr  called “175 Christmas Cracker Box”  I cut it on a 12×12 sheet of Craft Smith from their Silver Foil pad.  This particular cracker measure 10 inches in length and  is about 2 1/4 inch  squared.  The main storage area before it starts to curve  in is approximately 3 and a half inches. But of course, you can modify the cut file dimensions to suite your needs..as I did by unlocking the file dimensions if needed.

rae_crackerboxI added in the green glitter card band and  some matching ribbon ties, a few bells and some die cuts …  very easy file to assemble and decorate… and perfect for those of  you who find wrapping paper and tape to be like attempting brain surgery lol.

Love this file, definitely one I will be using a lot next year…. I am already planning ahead for next years projects.. * sigh  haha.  The fun thing is because of the design it could be used all year round, not just Christmas..it kind of looks like a big wrapped candy.

Cracker style gift boxes

This particular design is a single piece of card with only 4 flaps to  glue, so super fast and simple.  You could of course add to the design if you want to by dropping in some cutouts and adding in an acetate window feature.  I kept this one plain to show the original design, and also because the little man will be decorating these.

I can see me making quiet a few of these in the coming weeks, they cut real quick and  clean.  Very easy to resize to fit your gift needs.   These would be perfect for candy, cookies and other small gifts.

 

It works perfectly for these glass jars I picked up at the local craft store for about  $1, Lil man decorated these with clear backed stickers we picked up on sale at Hobby Lobby 50% off.  Super easy and cute  gift for grandparents, or of course you can make them too and they make great coworker gifts … They can be as simple or lavish as you want.

Great cut file and I shall definitely be back to see what else this designer has.  I’ll be adding a link in to the blog cut file section too, for anyone who needs cut files.
