The Steps for How to Make the Easy Paper Crafts: Gift Box Gift Tag or Ornament:

Print and cut out the pattern pieces.

Fold the solid color paper and place the largest box shape with the labeled edge along the folded edge of the paper.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 1 fold paper

Cut around the edges of the box shape - except for the folded edge.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 2 cut out box shape

Position the four smaller shapes on the decorative patterned paper.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 3 place shapes on patterned paper

Cut around each of the four shapes.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 4 cut out shapes

Glue the four shapes to the front of the solid color box shape matching the edges.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 5 glue pieces to box shape

Finish gluing all four of the shapes to the front of the Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag. Trim the edges if necessary.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 6 finish gluing box front

Fold the 8-inch piece of yarn in half. Place a small amount of glue in the creased area. Position the ends of the yarn over the glue. Fold the shape to hold in place.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 7 glue yarn inside

Fold the 12-inch piece of curling ribbon into three sections. The sections do not need to be exact.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 8 fold ribbon in thirds

Hold the three sections together and tie a knot in the middle of the three ribbons. Cut the folded ribbon such that there are three cut ends on either side of the knot.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 9 tie knot in middle of three ribbons

Use the edge of the scissors to curl each of the six ribbon ends. You may want to curl each ribbon end twice to make smaller curls.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 10 curl ribbon ends

Split each ribbon down its middle to form 12 narrow ribbon curls.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 11 split curled ribbon

Place a dot of glue in the "X" area on the front of the box.

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 12 glue ribbon to box

Clamp the knot of the ribbon on the dot of glue until the glue dries.

If you have a hot glue gun, you can use it instead of the liquid glue. (Hot glue guns are great, I'm just not a fan of burned fingers and glue "hairs.")

Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag step 13 clamp until glue dries

After the glue dries, remove the clamp and fluff the ribbon curls.

Last step, address your Easy Paper Crafts Gift Box Gift Tag before adding it to your package.

Or, you can add the pretty little gift boxes to a Christmas tree.
