I have a friend who is a figure skater and I wanted to create a special holiday gift box for her this year so I designed this sweet little skate gift box. The box is self supporting and stands up on it’s own and, although you can’t see it in this photo, there is an opening at the top of the skate which would be perfect for holding candy canes, hot chocolate packets, or even a bag full of chocolates.

I made my skate out of Real Red cardstock (template takes 2 sheets). To jazz it up, I added fuzzy white brads, white ribbon, and thin feathering as a cuff. I made the sole of the boot using a straight edge and a black Sharpie marker. The blade was made out of shiny silver cardstock.

And, I just couldn’t let the opportunity pass to make a masculin skate. As you can see, I put a couple of treats inside of the box so you can get an idea of the size.

Each skate took roughly 15-20 minutes to assemble and decorate after the pieces were cut out. It’s not a difficult project at all but, because the pieces are exact in measurement, it does require you to be careful and accurate when adhering the pieces together.
