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.
