How was your weekend? I had an awesome one with my little family. The sun finally made an appearance which made me in the mood for gold. If you give me a chance, I’d put an edge or border on anything. So why not these DIY Gold Edged Gift Boxes? The gold adds a little touch of glam, don’t you think? Read on to make your own sassy gift boxes…


The What

The How

  1. In Silhouette Studio, open your box design
  2. Use the rectangle tool to draw a square the same size as the top of your box
  3. Use the offset tool and create an internal offset
  4. Group the 2 squares together – that will be your top gold edge or border
  5. Repeat for all 4 rectangular tabs on the top of your box
  6. Place your box design on the page and send to cut using cardstock settings
  7. Remove the box design and place your edge shapes on the page
  8. Send to cut using printable foil settings
  9. Stick your gold foil edges on the top of the box
  10. Assemble your box by folding at the dashed lines and glueing the tabs
