I can’t wait to share this new papercraft tutorial with you today – a stacking explosion gift box tutorial. Creating a handmade gift always shows your receipt how much you care.
The explosion stacking gift box can be made easily made using a cutting machine or just a pair of scissors. The templates for this gift box are a free gift to you below. Both PDF printables and SVG cut files are included.
Around here, we do things in vibrant colors, so I made the explosion gift box into a stacking rainbow of color! Love rainbows like me? You probably will adore my Unicorn Rainbow Paper Flowers!
To make your gift box especially unique to you, choose colors of cardstock or scrapbooking paper to let your style pop. Don’t forget to brainstorm what you want to include in the box and any photos or notes you will want to add its pockets!

Below are the supplies I used to create these stacking colorful paper gift boxes.
