Gift boxes

With gifts, it’s also what’s on the outside that counts.

Decorative gift boxes are a great way to show how much you care. And with personalized design elements, you can make your gift count inside and out for the person who matters most. Create your own canister-shaped gift container for that someone special by following the simple steps below!


• 13” metal canister with removable lid
• 10 kinds of fun, colourful papers
• Size of “FOR YOU’ text: cut to 1.96” x 2.76”
• Rhinestones
• Ribbon
• Lace flowers
• Glue

Step 1
Create the side pieces that go around the can. Use a tape measure to measure the can’s circumference. If it’s longer than 12”, cut as multiple pieces.

Tip! When cutting dark-coloured material using Direct Cut, use a white or other light-coloured pen to draw the cutting lines on the back of the material for better recognition. Function: Direct Cut

Step 2
The circumference of the can used in this project is 13”. Since it’s greater than 12”, cut the side piece in two parts, each measuring about half the length (6.75”).
