Mother’s Day Gift Box

These boxes can be used to hold gifts such as jewellery or chocolate or can just be used as decoration.

To make the boxes you will need:

Follow these simple steps:

  1. Paint the boxes a colour of your choice and leave to dry. Why not use your mum’s favourite colour!
  2. Cut out colourful or patterned paper to fit inside the bottom of the box. Use the box as a guide to draw around.
  3. Cut out some shapes from magazines or wrapping paper. Why not try cutting hearts, flowers, initials or other simple shapes.
  4. Add any decoration you like for example sparkly gems, sequins or ribbon!


  • Why not fill the finished box with some chocolate or jewellery
  • Why not decorate the box with cut outs from family photos or use your own drawings!
