Easy Dollar Tree Father’s Day Gift Packaging

The Aqua Fusion cologne gift set I bought at the Dollar Tree..it’s readily available at most Dollar Trees. I really like the smell of it and so does Rich.

The bottom of the box dimensions:

7 7/8″ tall

5 1/4″ wide

Score all four sides at 1 1/4″

The top of the box dimensions:

7 1/2″ tall

4 7/8″ wide

Score at 1″ on all four sides

Score on the back of the paper you are using. Fold all of your scores. Then cut a thin triangular slit on the long side on each score to the 1″ and 1 1/4″ score (depending on the piece you are cutting.) Your cut should cut out the score line and the angular cut should be closer to the edge of the cardstock (and not toward the center.) Fold in the flaps you’ve created by cutting the notches out and put glue on the entire flap then fold the flaps so they create a corner of the box and put a clothespin on the corner until the glue is set. Do the same to all corners.

Once the box is made, all you need to do is decorate it. I ran tear tape on the ends of ribbon and cut the 12″ ribbon in half then laid the ends on the inside of the top of the box. I folded the ribbon so it made a knot on the top of the box and used my extra cardstock to make a small gift card.
