outside the boxes

Long ago my sister and I learned how to make cute little boxes out of greeting cards.
A lot of folding, a few snips and a piece of tape to steady things
and you have a sweet little box for ... whatever.
 My sis took it a step further when she stamped/decorated card stock, cut out the needed squares and
made larger boxes. I found these tucked away in a drawer at my mom's as we cleaned out.

They just needed to be photographed and played with! Perfect little gift boxes, already "wrapped."
 I hope to do a tutorial on these soon.

Connecting with other mosaics at Mary's Little Red House. Stop by there to see more.


  1. I am looking forward to that tutorial, Dotsie!! I need special boxes to wrap my knitted gifts and this looks to be just what I have had in mind!! Woo hoo!

  2. That will be a good tutorial! I remember my mum making such little boxes.

  3. Dotsie,

    That would be a wonderful tutorial. I have some cartridges for my Cricut that make boxes and bags and I hope to make some pretties for Valentine's Day and Easter.


  4. I love decorative boxes. Those are wonderful and a tutorial would be great!
    Have a great day!
