Paper Drum Gift Box Tutorial

Hello, G45ers!

  We are so thrilled to share these incredible Paper Drum Gift Boxes with you today!  The drum set was created with our Stacking Circle Box set and our Nutcracker Sweet – DCE and Come One, Come All! Patterns and Solids pad which make them perfect for holiday gift boxes that double as home decor.  This idea could also be fun for a music lover or a boys room by just switching up the paper.  We encourage you to grab your papers and play along with Crêté Angélique aka Boule de scrap‘s step by step tutorial, and/or grab a cup of hot cocoa and take the video tour to see all the delicious details of these Christmas boxes.


Christmas Drums (Gift Boxes)

By Boule de Scrap


“Hello everyone,

 today, I came to present to you a new idea for a gift box. With my previous creation, I proposed you to create a gift box with the Window Shoulder Box. This time, I propose you use the Stacking Circle Box Set.

The Nutcracker Sweet collection inspired me enormously. It is a fabulous collection to emerge in the magic of Christmas tales.

I immediately wanted to create gift boxes in the shape of a drum, and the round boxes were the ideal support. I let you discover in images and video my project.

Step by Step Tutorial:


We will first ink the edges of our two boxes.





Then we will create our drums. We will give height to our round boxes thanks to our papers. For this we will cut two strips of paper of 20 cm x 30 cm, and two strips of 15 cm x 30 cm.

The measurements are only as an indication, because we can create boxes of all sizes by following the same process.

We will stick our papers inside our boxes (on the base part of the box). Follow the photos as an example.











We will then cover the lids of our boxes. For this, I use them in templates.









With the help of small strips of paper 1 cm wide, I will create the spirit of the drum.






To finish, I move on to decoration, thanks to paper cutouts, chipboards and various embellishments.







Our boxes are ready to be filled with surprises and to be offered.





Happy Papercrafting.”
