Being part of the crafting community obviously means we love all things handmade. This year we want to pass on our love for craft to our family and friends with these super easy 3D star gift baubles. These festive gift boxes are the perfect way to share small treats with your loved ones and make their Christmas tree look amazing!

We were inspired by this this star template on the website to create this fun design. We’ve included our own free template below to make creating these even easier, so what are you waiting for?


You will need

- Free Printable Template

- Paper Addicts 12x12 pad Krafty Joy

- Dovecraft Acetate

- Dovecraft Perma-fix Tape

- Dovecraft Bone Folder

How to make

1. Print out a copy of the free template.


2. Place this on to your chosen paper design and cut along the outer solid black lines.


TIP – Secure the template with washi tape to hold in place whilst cutting.


3. Score along all of the dotted lines to make it easier to fold.


3. Cut out the window using a scalpel.


4. Using the piece you have cut out, cut a piece of acetate slightly bigger. 


5. Adhere this to the inside of the window.


5. Fold along the scored lines.


6. Use perma-fix to seal the box using the tabs. Leave the tab with a semi-circle cut out free so we can open the box later.


7. Pierce a hole at the tip of a star point and thread some string though to complete your bauble.


8. Fill your finished bauble with a treat of your choice!

FAb idea and it looks fab too and will be perfect for the small gifts for friends or for the kids to give their friends too, and they can even make them themself, if they´re not too small.
