Have you tried out the Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' Up!? It was introduced in the Holiday Catalog a few months ago. You can find it on page 5 or HERE in my online store. I love that you can make so many different sizes and shapes of boxes with it!!
My best tip is.. get the Under the Tree heavy weight designer paper for your boxes (pg 5 of the Holiday Catalog) .. it works great for scoring and folding these boxes.
Here is a green box I made when I was stamping one day at Cindee's house.. we made boxes and then created tags.. I used the Santa Stache stamp set to create a nutcracker tag on the Kraft paper (pg 192 in the annual catalog). I colored it with Blendabilities.. I would say that Blendabilities probably look nicer on Whisper White cardstock, but, I do love how this turned out!
Here is a tip for you about using paper with a pattern in the Gift Box Punch Board:

I used the Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blendabilities markers to color in the stamped Nutcracker. I stamped the mustache a 2nd time and die cut it with the Mustache framelit and added it to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals.
