Fun Stuff- Gift "Baxes"

Gift Baxes are a mix between a gift bag and a box.  

Here is how you do it:

Supplies Needed:
  • Cereal Box
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Ribbon*
  • Tissue Paper
*(For the Ribbon use as thick and wide as you want.  I used a sheer ribbon 
because it was what I have but I would go something much thicker)
1- Trim the top flaps from a cereal box

2-Wrap the box like you would wrap a present.  Leaving about 2 inches of paper free at the open end of the box. 

3- For the free paper cut at the corners down to the top of the box.  This will make it cleaner when folding it in.

4- Fold the free paper inside the box and tape to secure it
5- Grab your hole puncher and punch two holes in each side towards the top.  You can decide how far apart you want them.

6- Measure you ribbon and feed it through your punched holes to make the handle.  Knot a few times so the ribbon will not come loose when you carry it.

7- Put your gift in with tissue paper and you have your sturdy "Gift Bax"
