When the Holiday’s come around, many of us like to give little gifts or baked goods to the people we love. This One Sheet Gift Box is perfect for those special occasions, can be made in a flash and uses only a sheet of 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper! That’s it. How cool is that? Most of us have plenty of scrapbooking paper laying around.
How to make a One Sheet Gift Box
- Using a Score Board, score one sheet of 12 x 12 paper (27 x 27 cm) at 3″ and 9 inches
Metric: 7.62 cm and 22.8 cm
- Rotate paper and Score at 1″, 3 1/2″, 6 1/2″ and 9 inches.
Metric: 2.54 cm, 8.9 cm, 16.5 cm and 22.8 cm
- Cut down to the middle score lines
- Cut tabs off the corner op of sheet to make lid.
- Fold on score lines
- Tape with box together using a strong adhesive
Such a easy and cute box, huh? What’s great about this One Sheet Gift Box is it can be customized for any theme! All you have to do fill it up with your favorite cookies or treats. If you don’t have time to make it now, just print off the instructions!

Hi Holly, great project, you’re right about that paper not needing much so your rosettes and raffia were just the right touch.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

I found your idee via pinterest. Thank you for the instruction.

Love the cookie box. Very cute and easy to make. Assuming bought cookies, since the box is deep, just wondered if you had a choice of cookies that fit. Now to think of what cookies would be best. Looks like it could hold a good amount. Just curious. If anyone can email me what you used, hugs in advance. email@example.com
Susan Duncan saysNovember 14, 2014 at 5:35 pm
I love this box, so I thought why not try to make a smaller one. So I used a 6×6 paper and divided the score lines by half. Worked great! They can hold four little tea lights inside, and with a few simple decorations with a tea light holder included you have a nice little gift for not a lot of money! Oh and small slices of fudge work inside as well!
Holly Gagnon saysNovember 15, 2014 at 3:24 pm
Yay! Thank you so much Susan for sharing this great idea! Holly 🙂

My kids and I make cookies for their teachers every year for Christmas and we just made one of these to put them in! It turned out awesome…so simple, affordable and soooooo cute. I don’t have the scoring tools but improvised and it came out great! Thanks for posting…I’m sure I will be using these for many years to come ?
Holly Gagnon saysDecember 17, 2015 at 9:28 pm
Thanks for sharing that Julianna! So happy it worked out still without a score board. Happy Holidays to you! Holly 🙂
Christiane saysMay 9, 2016 at 7:47 pm

Such a great way to make a unique box for someone special. It’s often the little things people appreciate the most. Muslin or Burlap gift bags are also a great back up for gift giving. You can make them unique with stamps, ribbons or tags.
Holly Gagnon saysJune 8, 2016 at 2:30 pm
Yesm it a great little box. Thanks so much for stopping by. Holly 😉
