Book Box - Boox?

Do you carefully wrap presents only to watch in horror as people rip open the gifts and throw away the expensive paper, box and ribbon? Here is a great way insure that doesn't happen.

Materials:
small gift box
chipboard or mat board
wrapping paper
ribbon
glue stick

Tools:
scissors
old credit card

Measure your gift box and cut two pieces of chipboard or mat board 1/4"larger around three sides. The box will sit flush on one edge of the chipboard, but needs a small border around the other 3 sides. Measure the height of the box and cut one piece of chipboard as wide as the height of the box and as long as the longest sides of the other pieces of chipboard. This will be the spine of the book.
Cut a piece of wrapping paper an inch or so longer than the combined size of the three pieces of chipboard combined. Cut it an inch or so wider. Snip off the corners of the paper. Glue the boards and position them on the back of the paper, allowing a 1/2" border all the way around. (*Take a scrap piece of chipboard and place it between the larger pieces and the smaller piece to create a small gap. This gap insures that this cover will be able to bend.) Turn the cover over and press the paper to the board with an old credit card.
Glue the edges of the paper and stick them to the chipboard. Press with the credit card to insure adhesion. Cut the ribbon into 2 pieces and glue one end of each piece to the center outside edge of the cover.
Cut the lining paper 1/2" smaller than the width and length. Glue and carefully place the lining on the inside of the cover; first one side, then the gap, the spine, the other gap and then the final side, scoring in the gap as you go. Use the credit card to assure adhesion and remove air bubbles. You should be able to see 1/4" of the outside paper around the outside of the lining.
You can, at this point, cover the outside of the box, but I liked the red and the box was in good shape. If you decide to cover it, just cut out a strip of paper a little longer than the perimeter of the box and an inch wider than the height. There is no need to cover all of the top of the box as it will be glued to the cover. Glue your strip of paper and wrap it around the box, folding it around the the top and to the inside edge of the box.

Measure the inside of the box. Add that measurement plus the height of the box (doubled for both sides), subtract 1/2" as you don't need to go all the way to the top edge of the box. Cut out the corners as pictured above.
Dry fit the paper and make any adjustments necessary. Glue the paper and place it on the inside of the box. Glue the box to one side of the cover, positioning one side of the box along the inside edge of the cover. Center it up and down. You should have a small cover border around three sides of the box.
Fold the other cover over and tie the ribbons in a bow. Trim the ribbons.

Tips:
This is usually a twofer as you can make a book box out of the bottom and one out of the lid of a gift box.

What a great idea. I run a school library and this would be a great way to store book and CD sets. Will be making some soon. Thank you for sharing

Oh thank you so much for showing how to make these. I have given gifts in pre-made book boxes before, but now I can make the exact size and color I want. Yippee!!!

Chelsea said...

Very cool! I have a bunch of old books that I may use for this project! Although I may get lazy and just glue a box in there and trim it down to size, since I will already have the book covers!
