I’m so pleased with this little project! I collaborated with Jordan of Polkadot Prints to design a darling house-shaped gift box that is as easy as pie to put together. You’ll want to make one for neighbors, postal workers, teachers — pretty much everyone you know!

Simply print off the free template, cut it out and double-side tape it together.

Fill it with a few small treats and your gift-giving list is done in a flash!


-Printable house template
-X-acto blade
-Double-sided tape
-Ruler & scoring tool

Print the house gift box template. Cut out the house and wreath.

If you prefer, use the X-acto knife to cut out the window panes. The box will still be perfectly cute if the panes aren’t cut. : )

With the ruler and scoring tool, score the house template on all the dotted lines.

Fold on the newly scored lines.

Add a piece of double-sided tape to the small tab.

Connect it with the other side of the house, as seen above.

Fold the bottom flaps in and use double-sided tape to hold it closed.

Add a piece of tape to the backside of the wreath and stick it in place.

Fill the box with a few small treats or a small gift. Add one more piece of tape to the top flaps and pinch the roof closed.

Give to all!



– Christmas party favors
– Teachers, delivery persons, newspaper delivery person, neighbors…the list goes on!
– Schoolmates! They are the perfect size for little hands.
