How to make a gift box for DIY homemade custom printed candles


Well as promised I am sharing with you how I package my custom made candles, if you haven’t yet seen my videos showing how you can use your printer, sharpie pens, stamps and/or dies to create amazing bespoke customised candles be sure to check out the links below. You could use these candles as gifts or customised decorations, I’d like to try some ghosts and ghouls on a candle as a halloween decoration.

Stamps & Dies Candles

Now on to the fabulous boxes, it’s worth noting that my candles are approximately 6 1/2 inches tall by 9 inches round, if your candles are a different size you will need to adjust the measurements accordingly. I have a full list of sizes and score lines below the video link.

11 by 11 1/4 inches card stock

Score lines: 
Starting on the 11 inch side score at,
2 5/8, 5 1/4, 7 7/8 & 101/2
on the 11 1/4 inch side score at,
2 5/8, 8 5/8 & 10 3/4

Window section:
Cut 1/4 inch in from the bottom and the two sides. Cut 5/8 of an inch from the top.
The transparency piece should be cut to 2 5/8 by 6 inches.

I hope you all enjoy making these candle gifts. As always I love hearing from you so please do leave any comments or questions below. If you make some of these candles please do tag me on Instagram or Twitter “CraftynotShifty’ so I can see your work.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back soon with another card making video.
