I make these in the same way, but with old christmas cards, kept from the previous year, use the front of the card for the lid, try to centre any pattern and it makes a nice xmas box. You can do the same for birthdays, easter, etc.

very eco friendly too!

This is a brilliant idea!! You could fill it with all the little bits that are too small to wrap on their own. Love it Happy
