Assembling the Quietfire Gift Card Boxes - Tutorial





The gift card boxes come in so many designs!  These sweet easy-to-assemble layered boxes have a print and cut sentiment for the top of the box (or wherever you’d like to add it), but most important, a simple pocket at the back to hold a standard size gift card.


Here are the quicky instructions for assembly:
Open the file in the software and ungroup once. Separate out the elements so similar colours may be cut at the same time. To Assemble:  Fold all the perforated score lines to create the box and form the box by adhering the side tab.  Glue the tabs for the bottom flap of the box in place for stability.  Gently curve the panel, slide the panel inside the box and insert the tabs in the slots in the side of the box.  Repeat for the second panel. Close the top and add the cut and print sentiment.  Add the gift card pocket to the back.

Here are the detailed instructions in a video tutorial (If you are receiving this as an email update, please visit YouTube HERE to view the tutorial).





Just ask if you have any questions!
Happy creating! Suzanne

  1. I love the gift card boxes, but would like to know what is the best glue to use. I have used the roller adhesive but does not seem to stick. Thanks for any suggestions.

    1. Try using Sookwang double-sided tapes. They're really sticky! Happy creating!

  2. If I leave the top and bottom open and up can I fold this to mail?

    1. In theory, you could, but there is a good chance the inserts will fall out easily and confuse the recipient, so I wouldn't recommend it!
