Hi! Friends, In this video I would like to show how I made a round gift box out of cardstock Paper. For this gift box, we also use ivory card along with cardstocks. This gift box is designed to have a rigid round shape.To get the round shape, we use a cylinder like container of desired size as a reference.
Kindly watch the embedded video for visual tutorial.

Step 1: Tools and Materials Required
1) Cardstock Paper
2) White paper
3) Glitter pen
4) A Cylinder of desired size
2) Cutting blade
Step 2: Base Cylinder
First of all we will make a base cylinder using cardstock and ivory card for our gift box.
1) Cut out a strip of card stock paper having breadth = 5 cm.
2-6) Take a reference cylinder with a desired size. Using the cardstock strip measure the circumference of the cylinder and cut off the extra length.
7-11) Now, by keeping the strip around cylinder take the extra cut off strip and measure the circumference around the first strip. Cut off the extra length.
12-14) Then paste the second strip over the first strip as shown in the image.
15-21) Now cut out a strip from ivory card or a white paper having breadth = 5 cm. Measure the circumference around the cardstock strip and cut off the extra length. And paste it over the cardstock strip as shown in the image.
Now we have a base cylinder.
Step 3: Making Lid
Now, we need a lid for the gift box. Before that we need to increase the thickness of the cylinder walls.
1-5) Cut out a strip of 3.5 cm. Measure the cicumference around the base cylinder and cut off the extra length. Paste it over the base cylinder so that we will get a breadth 1.5 cm of white strip at the top.
6-10) Using the same strip of 3.5 cm breadth, again measure the circumference around the base cylinder and cut off the extra length. Paste it over the cardstock strip.
11-14) Now we need a lid for the box. For that cut out a cardstock strip of 1.5 cm and measure the circumference around the white portion at the top. Cut off the extra length.
15-17) By keeping the first strip around the cylinder take the extra strip and measure the circumference including the first strip. Cut off the extra length.
18-23) Do not paste the first strip. Instead paste the second strip over the first strip around the white portion of gift box so that it could slide up and down over the base cylinder.
Step 4: Writing a Message
Now, I would like to add some text to the gift box.
1-3) Cut out a strip having breadth = 3.5 cm from the ivory card.
4-8) On this strip write your message. Use stencil or free hand to write the message. Decorate if required. And paste the strip around the cylinder as shown in the image.
9-15) Now, we need to add a white strip around the lid. For that, cut out a strip having breadth =1.5 cm from the ivory card. Measure the circumference around the lid and cut off the extra length. Decorate the strip and paste it around the lid. Now we have base cylinder box and the lid.
Step 5: Top and Bottom Closure
1-4) Take a piece of cardboard. Trace the inner circumference of the base cylinder and the lid. Cut out both the circles out of cardboard.
5-7) Then take a piece of cardstock paper. Trace the inner circumference of the base cylinder and the lid. Cut out both the circles out of cardstock paper.
8-11) Now take a sheet of ivory card. Trace the external circumference of the base cylinder and the lid. Cut out both the circles out of ivory card.
12-20) Now we have two sets of three different circles. Take one of them and paste three circles together in the following order - ivory card, cardboard, cardstock. Then apply glue around the circle and paste it onto the lid as shown in the image. The circle made of ivory card should face outward.
21-24) Do the same with second set of three circles and paste it onto the the base of the cylinder box.
Now we have our round gift box with lid in hand.
Step 6: Secure It
1-4) Finally secure the gift box with a ribbon of desired color. You may also tie a bow on the top of the gift box lid.
