I made a couple of gorgeous gift boxes from an idea by Tara Brown. They look absolutely stunning in real life!
Tara has the template for free on her site, but it's wpc file which is of no use to me so I made my own template, and also an extra piece for a lid which the canopy is glued onto.
I used heavy card stock for mine, but if you use chipboard they would be great for kids to play with, and maybe make some furniture to fit inside?
I have plenty of ideas for other colourways, so I may end up with a fleet before long!
