It’s so easy and pretty quick to make a repurposed baking pan gift box for a that extra special Christmas gift.
I have a thing for vintage baking pans.
Honestly, I can’t seem to not buy them when I see them in the thrift stores. They’re usually pretty cheap, like 50 cents to $1, so that makes pieces pretty hard for me to resist.
How to Make a Gift Box out of Baking Pans
These vintage GSW pans are obviously responsible for a lot baked goodness, and while they’re not identical pans they’re very similar in size.
And that makes them perfect for a gift box.
The first thing I needed to do was attach the two pans together.
I went into my stash of tapes and found this metal duct tape. It’s the real stuff that’s used around duct work.
It’s shiny and awesome, and can be used in so many ways.
I put the pans down side by side and simply taped two sides together.
This acts like a hinge, and can just be removed to use the pans after the gift has been given.
Here’s my baking pan box closed.
Now comes the fun part…. filling it with baking goodies.
How to Fill Your Baking Pan Gift Box
I went into my bakeware stashes and found some vintage Christmas themed cookie cutters.
Some vintage tart tins in three different sizes.
A set of stainless steel measuring spoons.
And a set of Foley stainless steel measuring cups.
I wrapped them all in a festive red tea towel, and placed the whole kit-n-kaboodle in the box.
There was a little more room in the box so I added two Christmas themed hot pads.
In my eyes, these pans are pretty patina perfect, but I decided to pretty the box up a bit.
I wrapped it in a wide piece of lace ribbon… just taping the lace down on the bottom of the pan.
On top of that I wrapped and tied a tartan Christmas Ribbon, making sure it was tight so the box holds together well.
Then I tied some jute twine around the box and tied a Williams-Sonoma glass snowman chef ornament onto that.
I love the little baker’s hat. So cute!
And one last touch… a Christmas pick to add that little extra something.
I just glued it onto the ribbon using my glue gun.
I think this baking pan gift box full of baking goodies is a perfect gift for that special baker friend or family member who loves vintage bakeware just as much as they love baking.
New baking pans would work just as well too.
Just make the box pretty with some Christmas ribbon and decorations and it’ll be fabulous.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
