Becky James delivers Christmas gifts with panache in a hexagonal gift box design full of rustic charm
Make a quick and easy gift box to house Christmas presents and more
Christmas time provides us crafters with a fabulous excuse to utilise our skills in a wide variety of ways. After we have indulged our creative side making holiday greetings, we all too often have leftover seasonal papers and card to use up. If this is the case for you, Becky James has come up with a simple-to-construct hexagonal box that is the perfect way to use leftover stash and present small gifts in their own handcrafted container. Whether you have chosen a lovely piece of jewellery to treasure or you are giving a selection of handmade truffles to everyone attending a festive get together, this sweet little box will ensure your offering is an instant hit with recipients, even before they find out what’s inside!
Constructing the box from kraft card, then partially covering it with festive papers and die-cut designs gives the box a lovely rustic look while keeping a festive feel.
