Gingerbread Man Gift Box

from $1.97

Here’s a classic that will bring back fond childhood memories and add a wonderful decorative detail to your holiday gift wrapping.

Instructions:

Step 1: Using a ruler and precision knife, cut a 2- or 3-inch wide paper strip along the length of the sheet or roll of kraft paper. Make accordion folds, measuring each fold with a ruler to make sure the sections are all approximately 1.5 inches wide.

Step 2: On the top section, draw half a gingerbread man along the folded edge. Cut around the gingerbread outline, but avoid cutting along the folds!

Step 3: Unfold the paper strip to reveal your gingerbread man paper chain. Use the white paint crayon to draw a few simple details, such as eyes, a mouth, buttons, hands and feet.

Step 4: Tape the paper chain around the gift box. Use some ribbon to tie an attractive bow to the top of the box and add a few bells as a finishing touch.

You will need:

  • Gift box to decorate
  • Roll or large sheet of kraft paper
  • Scissors
  • Precision knife
  • Opaque white paint crayon
  • Ruler
  • Ribbon
  • Bells
