What You’ll Need

How To Make It

  1. Download and print the templates.
  2. Start by creating your 3D house. Follow the instruction on the PDF, but cut off the tabs on the front porch to create a little flap. Punch a hole at the top of the chimney and don’t attach it yet. 
  3. Cut out the printable figures. Cut around them, but leave a small portion towards the top of each, then punch out a hole. These will be your gift tags!
  4. Blow up 4-5 small balloons. Let air out as needed to achieve the desired size. Make sure once they’re all inflated that they fit in your box. 
  5. Tie a string to each balloon, then knot them together.
  6. String them all into the hole in the chimney. Knot them on the other side, trim, then pull through. 
  7. Glue the chimney onto the roof. Hot glue is recommended to hold it all together better, but a glue stick will also work.
  8. Cut out a small, rectangular piece of paper and write out your note. 
  9. Roll it up tightly and tie a bow around it with string or ribbon. Then, put the note inside the house using your front flap. 
  10. Use ribbon or string to wrap up the box and add your gift tags. 


All cutting and gluing should be done by an adult.
