{Party Favor Friday} Make Your Own Gift Box

So you've found the perfect little gift to give to someone special for a birthday, a wedding, or perhaps a housewarming party. Now what do you put int in? A plain white box is well . . . a plain white box and you're looking for something with a little more "oomf", or is it "oomph"?

Well look no further than your local craft store or maybe even your own craft room for some "oomf" colored card stock of your choice and coordinating ribbon. offers a very cool pattern and tutorial for creating your very own gift box. What better way to add some extra personalization to your gift than a handmade gift box to present it in.

I made my own box to test out the level of difficulty and on a scale from 1 to 5 with five being the most difficult, I would rate it at a three. The best thing about this box pattern is no need to glue. It's a very clever design that fits together. It did take me a minute to figure out the box top but my brain eventually kicked in :-) I certainly recommend reading the tip on scoring the box pattern on the tutorial. If you do, you're in good shape and you've got a cute little box.

Have a wonderful weekend!
