There are loads of fantastic nature-themed projects for you to craft in Papercraft Inspirations 181 – including an adorable owl gift box template! We’ve got all the issue’s free templates for you to download, so you’re ready to start crafting.

The issue features an assortment of creatures alongside the gift box, which we’re sure you’ll have a hoot making! We’ve got the template for this and inspiration for creating an owl card, too. Top tip: for the owl on the card, form the body by die-cutting a partial circle from the top of a die-cut circle.

There are plenty of other projects that’ll bring a touch of nature to your cards as well. You can download templates for the dandelion card designs – and craft them using issue 181’s free designer stamps and embossing folders. We’ve got two flower-themed cards using resist techniques, too – they’re blooming marvellous! You can find the template for the advanced card below.

Want to treat someone? We’ve got the template for our mini-box cards – which you can hide a small gift inside, or even a favour for a wedding. You’ll also find the template for a pretty, decorative lantern below which you can create with only five items from your stash. The magazine features another four projects that you can craft with only five items too, making the projects very purse-friendly.
