How to make a pyramid Christmas Gift box for small sized gifts

Do you find the classic rectangular or square models a bit boring? Or is the gift to be wrapped a bit taller and wouldn’t fit in such a box? Pyramid shaped boxes are the solution! And with our templates, crafting a Christmas gift box will be a piece of cake!

craft instructions for cutting folding and gluing the pyramid


Print out the template on paper of any color and cut out the shape. If you want to make your box out of thicker cardstock that printers won’t accept, you can print the shape on plain paper, cut it out, and then trace the outlines onto the cardstock you’ve chosen. Then fold the shape in the designated areas, using a ruler to get straight folds.

Print out a craft template to transfer to paper

Fold all the sides along the dotted line in one and the same direction, for example, by placing the paper in front of you with the pretty side facing up and then folding everything down/inwards. Apply the glue to the outer surfaces of the flaps so that they can then stick inside the triangular sides.

No matter which Christmas gift box you make, the most practical thing about them is that they can be used over and over again as long as you don’t glue them completely shut. This makes the Christmas box more sustainable than conventional wrapping paper, for example, and a good alternative to store-bought gift bags, which are not always available in a small enough size. And with this model you get handles that give the package an even more interesting look.
