Make your own Mug/Cup Gift Box

Positivelypapercraft Mug gift box


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog. I just want to say that this will be my last post before Christmas! I just want to wish all my followers and very Merry Christmas. I hope you have a fantastic day. I will be back before he new year. Its surreal to think it will be Christmas in a couple of days.

Today i wanted to share this large gift box i made. I had bought a beautiful Mug for my Mam for Christmas but it didn't come with a box. I wanted to create my own as i think it would be a much better way to gift it. Also it would protect the Mug from any chips etc.

I also created a kind of slot in holder so that the Mug can sit in the bottom of the box. This just stops the Mug from rolling around in the box & it also gives a more professional look to the box. Its really easy to make & i was so pleased with the finished project.



I decorated the top of my box with my favourite Poinsettia flowers. They are from simply made crafts & you can find the link in the description of my YouTube video.  Please check out the video, you can find the link at the end of this post. Below you will see the measurements in Metric & Imperial.
