Free Printable Template

First Edition Wild at Heart 12x12 Paper Pad, First Edition Textured Card Stock

Dovecraft Border die, Ribbon

Fiskars Punch

How to Make

1. Print the free template and stick it down with washi tape to your chosen design from the First Edition Wild at Heart 12x12 paper pad. Cut out the template, fold and score where indicated.


2. Use Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to adhere the side and bottom of your template together to create the gift box shape.


3. Pick another Wild at Heart paper design and cut out a  6.5cm x 4cm piece. Adhere to the front, at the top of the box to make the roof.


4. Die cut the Dovecraft border die on to a complementing Wild at Heart sheet and adhere to the top edge of the box, trim if needed. Use the Fiskars punch to make two holes at the top to thread a length of Dovecraft ribbon through.


5. Cut a piece of card to make the door and windows, adhere to the front and sides. Add a door handle with a 3D foam pad. We’ve used one of the circles from the waste of the edge die cut.


6. Create the sentiment, ‘Dad’s Shed’ with the Dovecraft Wooden Alphabet stamp set. Adhere your phrase above the door on your gift box.


7. Use the green, First Edition Textured Card Stock to cut some small strips of grass to adhere around the bottom. Make the green strips fringed to create the look of grass.
