This holiday season give your loved ones wood. Yes, LOG. Everyone needs a log. Especially in gift box form!
Here's what you'll need, folks:
- 3 Sheets 8.5x11 card stock
- a printer
- tape or glue
- a gift!
Step 1: Come on and Get Your Log!
What's the matter, Susy, what's the matter, Jill? All out of gift wrap? Print and cut the attached file and your work is nearly done!
Print two sheets of page one.
Make sure you've cut the dotted line on the tabs all the way to the bark.
Step 2: What's Great for a Snack and Fits on Your Back?
Great, now your files are all cut out. Overlap one tabbed section over the other tabbed section of your other sheet. Tape down securely. I used double stick tape cause it's blammorific!
Then fold over the tabs extending out from the edges.
Step 3: It's Better Than Bad, It's Good!
Overlap the tabs on the outside ends to create a octagonal shape. Two underlapped segments will be hidden because you taped them together. You should have 8 segments showing and a full log.
Tuck the tabs underneath one another to get a spiral like a camera iris. Do this on both sides.
Step 4: Everyone Needs a Log!
Tape, glue, sugru the endcap thingy on one end and insert gift in other end.
Step 5: You're Gonna Love It, Log!
Attach other end to close up your log box. There you have it!
Coming Soon: Log for girls!
