    Small boxes for Christmas gifts

    These are fun, (but not easy) to make. They take very little material and make nice gifts. I made 7 of em - probably took me 20 hours. These are designed to hold business cards, but can be used to hold trinkets or jewelry. (My wife confiscated one to put her rings in).
