All Boxed Up! Wood Paper Boxes

Real Wood Gift Boxes

Create Real Wood Gift boxes easily and in minutes using only paper and a box die. These boxes came together quickly. We cut each box using a generic box die, Real Wood Paper and a Big Shot die cutting machine. There are many unique shapes and options on the market. Check out the variety available at Sizzix.


Little handmade boxes are great for any occasion. Fill the box with your favorite treat or gift and make a memorable impression.

A gem of a year

Only 5 days into 2017 and this year is already a gem! Check out these wooden gems we created using our Real Cherry Wood paper, 3D gem patterns and a few Darice products. These gems look like they have been carved from chunks of wood and then painted. The illusion is real, Real Wood Paper.

These jewels can have multiple uses. Make the gems into boxes that open for little treats. Pair the gem boxes with fun puns like; you rock, shine on or have a sparkly day. These gems also look great as home decor. Set of few jewels on a shelf next to books or plants. See how many people pick them up and then marvel at their weightlessness.

Add a little Real Wood to your Holiday Cards

This week we are sharing a round of Holiday cards using our new Real Wood Tags. All cards use one similar template for slightly different looks. Season’s Greetings!

Tag It! – Tag those gifts

Tagging those holiday gifts has never been easier. Make a statement with our beautiful Real Wood tags. Or create a design of your own using our Real Wood paper. Real Wood paper is easy to cut, punch and print on. We create the above Merry Christmas Tag design and printed multiples on Real Cherry Wood paper. After printing a full sheet of 12 we punched out each tag with a shape punch, added a red berry and a little hemp twine. These tags will really help us dress up our gifts. Happy wrapping.

1. Measure the top of your box. Our box is 7″ x 9″. Cut the Birch wood adhesive backed paper to 7″x 9″ (or the size of your box top). Remove the adhesive liner and adhere the wood paper to the box top. Lightly sand the outside edges with a sanding block if needed.

3. Cut out a heart from the pink colored Birch Wood paper and one from plain Birch Wood paper using a heart die and a Big Shot.

4. Place the cut out pink Birch wood heart into the negative space created from the cut plain Birch wood paper. Image should fit like a puzzle piece. Flip over and adhere the perimeter edges of the pink heart down to the Birch wood paper with tape. Check to be sure all edges nestle tightly.
