Custom Gift Boxes are all the rage these days.  I know, because I follow like seven companies on Instagram who specialize in them!  Ha!  I love the idea of a thoughtful and beautiful Gift Box that is a bit more personal than a flower arrangement for Hostess Gifts, Birthdays, Celebrations, or even Mother’s Day (wink wink).  The only issue is that these Gift Boxes can run you a pretty penny…and you have to pay for shipping or delivery on top of that!  So what did I do? I started making my own, of course! Today I’m showing you my tips for creating the perfect gift box yourself. This way you can control what goes in it and how fancy you want to get so you can keep the cost down.  Happy Gifting!

And don’t forget Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Here are a few of my favorite “Gift Box Goodies” you can use to create a perfect box for Mama.

    I love this! I would place the los at the bottom, that way the receiver can use the box for pictures or any other thing.
