The Fiskars Boxmaker- How to and Review!

How to use the Fiskars Boxmaker to make quick custom envelopes, boxes, and adorable bows! -- My Workbasket

Quite a while ago I got a goody box from Fiskars. I was sent the goodies for free but was under no obligation to tell you about them. However, I KNEW I would love this tool so I recorded an unboxing video and a how-to video. The problem was that something was wrong with the how-to, it needed to be re-recorded. It took forever to get time to record it all again. Problem is, in the time it took to make the how-to videos again the unboxing video was deleted! My husband forgot that one was good and erased it. So I don’t have an unboxing video anymore. However, I DO have how-to videos for making the box, bow, and envelope.

So, I really love this tool! It’s about $25-30 in stores. It takes up minimal space. It’s versatile, making all three things. It’s so easy to make such a wide variety of envelopes! I really do recommend it, and I’m glad to have it in my craft stash. I am hoping to get into doing craft shows and these will be quick and easy to make up to use for small items. I have another box tool that is really just a board with lines in it. This is MUCH easier!

Usually, I’m very tough to please and find fault with stuff. Something could always be improved. The only thing I wish was different about this is that the stylus is made to slide in, BUT it is very easy to do it the wrong way and get it stuck. You just have to pay attention to the line on the stylus, which I point out in the videos. A pretty piddly thing really, and something I’ll probably get used to.

  1. This contraption was not worth the money I spent on it. It shows it makes 100’s of box sizes but after bringing it home I find it only makes 2″ and 4″ boxes. If I can figure out how to make this thing look like its never been used, it’s going back to the store. Kind of false advertising

    1. I’m sorry you feel that way. It does make over a hundred sizes, BUT the overall size variation is not drastic. For example, it does a 2×2″ box in various depths, and a 2.5×2.5″ box in various depths. The largest overall size is 4×4″ in various depths. If you expect it to make any size box, then I can see how you’d be disappointed!
