In Animal Crossing, a gift box strung on a helium balloon will occasionally fly by. If the player manages to knock it down, they will receive a surprise item! Here is a fun DIY project to make your own gift boxes!

Supplies:

  • Two square pieces of paper (6x6in in photo)

  • Glue Stick

  • Red paper for the ribbon

Directions

Step one: Fold the corners of the paper to the middle.

Step two: Fold the top and bottom portions down, slightly past the middle. Open and do the same for the sides. Open.

Step three: Open the fold like a boat seen in photo.

Step four: Now here’s the tricky part. Fold at the black line seen in the photo. (Draw the same line if it’s easier!) There will not be an existing fold, you will have to make it. Then bring the side over. Do the same on the other side, then bring the flap down. This is one side of your box. Do the same for the other side.

Step five: Cut off red strips and glue them to the side of your box. This will hide the folds in the paper.

Step six: To create the top ribbon, take a single red strip and give it a wavy look. Pinch the bottom and glue to the top of your box.

Voila! To slide your boxes together, just pinch the bottom in. Add a balloon if you wish. Fill your boxes with as many DIYs or furniture as you wish!
