DIY Handmade Gift Box using sharpie

Don’t you just love giving handmade gifts to your loved one! These gifts are not only unique but they are special.

Because they come straight from your heart.


Today I am sharing a wonderful handmade gift box idea. It’s the easiest and most fun to create craft using sharpie.

Now you all must have seen sharpie mugs, sharpie ornaments, sharpie gift wrapping papers, sharpie plates and sharpie wall arts.

So I decided to share something different. And I used sharpie to create a gift box.


There are tons of ways you can use a box as a gift. You can fill it up with chocolates, tea, coffee, craft supplies, school/ office supplies.

And anything you think your receiver has all hearts for!

The gift box adds that extra special look to your simple gift.


Let’s see what I mean:

Gift Box Tutorial

You will need:


  • A wooden gift box (I bought mine from dollar store)
  • Sharpie
  • Spray paint (if you want to paint the box)
  • Stencil




  • I painted the box all white with spray paint. And let it dry.
  • While it was drying I created my stencil and cut it using my silhouette. If you have a silhouette you can download my stencil HERE.
  • Now enjoy using sharpie to decorate the box. I used red fine tip sharpie.


Once you’re done. You can fill the box with different sorts of things.

This will make a great gift for friends, neighbors and kids.


Here are the two I made.
