What You Need
- Gift box

- Double-stick tape
- Craft mat (optional)
- X-acto knife
Follow These Steps
Trace around the box with the pencil.
Cut out pop-up shapes with the X-acto knife. You’ll need to cut about three-quarters of the way around each shape, leaving the bottom of the form attached. If you’re an amateur crafter and it’s a basic shape, you can use small scissors. Poke the point through the back of the paper and cut out the forms. If you’re a skilled crafter with an intricate design, you’ll get more precision with an X-acto knife. Lay a craft mat or plastic cutting board on the surface first to protect it.
Apply solid color gift wrap to the top of the box.
Wrap the gift with the pop-up paper. Fold up each shape, pressing hard on the crease so that each stands up.
