LOG! Gift Box




About: Instagram: @makecation | Tumblr: makecation.tumblr.com

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
- scissors
- 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!

    I just want to thank you for this, I used it this Christmas. My brother in law is a huge Ren and Stimpy fan. He also collects baseballs. I got him a baseball for Christmas and used this to wrap it.

    I had to make the box a little bigger, but that was easy, I just printed up two of the side sections and added a couple more sections to the sides.

    He absolutely loved it! Unfortunately I think he liked the box better than the gift! :) Anyway, thank you again.

    Not sure I can handle the logistics of the high-tech construction of this gizmo but the template might make a pretty blammoriffic bikini! Thanks Koukalnator girl!
