Need a box in a hurry to pop a gift in? Never fear, use an envelope instead and the recipient will wondering how you made it!
This tetra gift box is a great eco-friendly and frugal alternative to standard gift wrapping paper as it is completely compostable. It is also free of plastic that is commonly found on curling ribbon and decorative rosettas.
- An envelope
- Optional: hole punch
Measure out a square by folding the corner over.
Cut the envelope to the size of a square PLUS with a flap as the fold over section.
Open the envelope and pop the gift contents in. Make sure not to overfill.
Fold the end flap twice to make a neat edge. Staple to seal shut.
Decorate the tetra box however you like.
We’ve added a home made paper flower tied with cotton thread through a hole made with a hole punch.
Eco-friendly and frugal is the sustainable way to go!
