Gable Boxes

Gable boxes are a wonderful form of gift packaging, coming in many colors and sizes.

Gable boxes are great for party favors, small food containers, and as gift boxes for special events. These are useful boxes that make use of a special design that makes them extremely attractive.

They’re not only a convenient storage box to place small items inside as gifts, but they can also be a creative work of art that makes use of simple paper, some folding techniques, and a bit of glue to create these lovely items.

You can even make your own gable box if you’re feeling so inclined. It is very easy to create these boxes from construction paper and decorate them to suit the special occasion you have in mind.

The size of the gable box you go with should depend on your own preferences and what you intend to use them for. If you are simply looking to share some candy as a wedding favor, then a mini gable box will be sufficient. To store a large food container or even t-shirts and other items, you would need large gable boxes for the job.

If you are looking for these boxes for an upcoming event, you can choose to purchase them ready made or you can create your own gable boxes for a unique touch. If you plan to find the ready made ones for more convenience, then you can have them easily made from a number of party supply stores locally. You can also get a huge handful of them online if you’re looking for custom gable boxes, as images can be uploaded and printed out, along with a number of other custom patterns and colors selected. You’ll also find that many of these suppliers offer gable boxes wholesale if you’re placing a bulk order.

If you are interested in making your own gable gift boxes, then you’ll need plenty of construction paper, a craft knife, and some strong glue. Get a template or an unfolded gable box to use as the outline so you can trace this to create a new blueprint. The best part about making your own gable box is that you get to choose the type of embellishment, the style of the paper, texture, and the color to suit the occasion.

Once you have your personalized gable boxes ready, you can decorate them with beads, ribbons, bits of colored paper, or tiny artificial flowers. Be creative when looking to create your own gable box so you can enjoy presenting these at the upcoming event, and be proud to know that you are sharing a gift that you made yourself.

When your gable boxes are all nicely decorated and you are ready to share them with the rest of the world, then fill them up with the items you have in mind. It is important to ensure that they fit perfectly as gable style boxes are quite fragile, so it would not be a good idea to stuff the items tightly inside. Unlike thick cardboard boxes, gable boxes are made from fragile construction paper, so they’re highly perishable and can break away if you place too many items inside and exceed their ideal storage space.
